With three locations around town and consistently excellent quality, El Chilito is one of our go-to spots for tacos and burritos. It’s on the modern side - with a colorful, nicely-kept patio and an espresso machine - but the vibe is still super casual. Also, their cold-brew coffee can wake the dead.
