Mike's parking lot tends to attract vendors. I've seen pit bulls for sale as well as Latin music CDs. I recommend an afternoon visit for first-timers. Look for the grey building with the chicken painted on the side. When you walk in, bypass the many botanas, grab a drink, and then head to the back of the store where you'll see a counter with five stools, a giant menu hanging from the ceiling, and two terribly sweet women cooking up made-to-order tacos, tortas, burritos, quesadillas, alambres, and carne x libre. (The latter is meat without bones.) There's no cheese dip or sides of rice and beans here, so try a variety of tacos or do halfsies with a friend on a couple of burritos. The platters are big enough for two, and the chicken barbacoa is a must-try.
