    Aqua fresca is seriously the best rehydration this side of Gatorade. Perfect mix of water+fruit.

    Sometimes this places smells really bad. But the food is always on point and fairly priced. The food fills you up but doesn't make you feel like a sack of sh!t like Taco Bell does.

  • Nick Birchard

  • Kazmira Pedonesi

    Amazing!! Get there early to avoid long lines. The hibiscus lemonade is delicious, but needs to be watered down because it's so sweet.
