  • Mostly I go here when there are events , like today they had the tortilla tournament. The five finalists were giving free samples.. I had some from burritos La Palma and from Kernel of Truth.There was music and 5 or 6 taco trucks. They also had activities for kids such as painting tortillas.
  • A truly great place to learn about Mexican Americans. It's well organized and full of real culture. Their events are always a hit!
