Came here for a meal on a Sunday afternoon with the family. Was very nice food, staff were great aswell. The food was served hot and quick, the burritos were so nice. I had the chicken and chorizo burrito and a few of my family had the pulled pork, all were very impressed. Will defiantly be returning.
