Beautiful interior and ample outdoor seating. They have a separate vegetarian menu. Huge portions! Handmade corn tortillas (machine press)with flour tortillas also available. Re-fried beans have lard :>(

Very fresh salads. Not cheap, but reasonable for what you get.

Separate vegan and veggie menus make it very clear what is safe to order. You order and pay at the front and they deliver it to the table, so take time to look at the veg menus before you get in line.
I had a veggie tostada, which was very large and tasty. My vegan husband had a butternut squash and poblano tamale which was nice as well. We had a guacamole as well with home made chips. Be sure to grab some of the home made salsas from the cart before you sit down. Lots of indoor and outdoor seating.
Tasty, reasonably priced, great for meat eaters and veggies alike.
