Serving a different type of meal, Best Coast Burritos brings its take on Mexican food to town. Promising to serve fresh and wholesome ingredients, this place creates its own salsas and creamy sauces.

Open until 4:00 pm on weekdays, and 3:00 pm on weekends, this joint features outside seating that overlooks the industrial location. So come down and enjoy their weekly special panini or even their monthly special salads before they’re gone.
