      de mole, a favorite of most/many sunnysiders.

      you can get quesadillas/burritos and such without the meat fillings. the salsa and chips - really fresh and good. their rice & beans that accompany the entrees are so good, i think you can eat that alone. ok, maybe not, but this is def worth checking out for meat-eating mexican-food loving folks.

        De Mole has spinach enchiladas and cactus burritos for vegetarians also.

          The cactus burritos at De Mole are very tasty. A nice alternative to the usual veggie burrito offered at most Mexican places. As for non-veggie options at De Mole, everything is fabulous.

    2. Yep, De Mole is great for Mex w/veg options, but it's BYOB and they charge $1.25 for each wine glass.
