Tirsa’s is a casual Mexican place on the southern edge of Chinatown, in the same complex as a Subway and across the street from a Burger King. So there's a constant stream of local office people stopping in picking up tacos to-go, sharing some loaded steak fries, or having quiet time over a cilantro-lime chicken plate in the corner. It's a good place to know about if you're in the area.
