The cashiers were very helpful the minute they saw my bewildered and confused face. They picked out this newbie right away and were very nice about suggesting different combinations based on what I was looking for. Also they serve free chips and homemade, corn based salsa at the register. As the cashier said, “I know it looks like baby diarrhea, but it’s really good.” Although slightly frightened with the visual, I decided to give it a try and it surely was very good and completely different to any salsa I’ve ever had. It was like a thick and spicy corn/salsa puree that went great with their home made chips.
The only downside is that this place only has one dessert option called the Mayan Roll, a crispy flour tortilla with chocolate, vanilla ice cream and dulce de leche. The cashier was honest and told me it’s ok, he didn’t try to sucker me into ordering it or play it up to be the most amazing dessert on the planet and that’s something I genuinely appreciate as a consumer.
None the less, this place is a great alternative to your run of the mill Chipotle’s and offers a lot of different variety. The restaurant is too far east to be considered part of the art district and too far north to be part of the downtown hysteria. Definitely worth the quick drive down US1 for.
