We finished up and left ourselves room for dessert, opting for the mulitas ($3.75) over the fried ice cream ($3.75). It was a dessert tortilla with cinnamon/sugar on topfilled with strawberries, deep fried and topped with whipped cream. It was a sweat way to finish off a good meal and we shared it.
