Mark this spot down for lunch with colleagues in MBFC. The Beef Quesadilla ($11.50) with melted cheese is foolproof, but also try their Naked Burrito ($8.90) that sees a mountain of ingredients buried in guac and a spicy picante Habanero sauce. Burppler Sheryl Sherbakes recommends saving some space for their Churros ($8) served with a chocolate dip — best eaten hot!
