Mexican Food with a Twist

I love the food here. Usually get something for breakfast or lunch from here at least once a week or more. While I haven't tried everything, I'd rate their shredded beef tacos, carnitias burrito and Chile rellenos tops! Their rice is mild, but very favorable. If you order a combo plate, taco chips... read more

Although I live nearby, I hadn't tried this until I saw other reviews. Boy, what a treat I have been missing. The Carnitas burrito is awesome and is hefty! (Please tell me all of that weight is not going to my hips!) :) A new local favorite. I've already returned and will again and again and ....

The carne asada all meat burrito is the best I've had, it was fresh and flavorful.. The breakfast burrito is not bad. The hot sauce is pretty good. The drive-thru is not a good idea unless you have been inside and tried a few things before. It is hard to understand and see the menu board. I will keep going... More

This place is horrible! I read a ton of positive reviews on another review site and thought I'd give this place a try. I went to the drive-thru and ordered some chicken taco's. First off, the menu board on the drive-thru was pathetic, it's not clear or well lit at all. It's just a long list of items, I'm talking... More

A fast food with awful food and no atmosphere Places like this make you change your opinion about Mexican food. Just go somewhere else.

This is probably the best Mexican food I've ever had. While here (5 days) I was told by 3 different people to go there. GREAT CHOICE! The only problem is that they won't take credit cards and they charge you for shopping with them if you use a debit card. I don't understand that logic. I could have bought hundreds... More

Good solid mexican fast food. I was really bummed that they didn't open earlier because I started work at 6:30am. But worth the stop when this is what you have a taste for.

The locals clued me in to this place. It looks dumpy on the outside but you won't regret going.
