Great burrito

I've eaten here four times. All I've gotten is the steak burrito and I'll tell you why... It's the best steak burrito in town and I love their little red sauce that comes on the side. They are both amazing. Also this place has a drive through. You can't beat it for convenience or flavor. People... read more

Food is OK. Nothing fantastic but OK. Just a typical Mexican fast food restaurant. A notch above other not so good places.

The food is very good, you can order ahead and pick it up or use the drive-through option. Prices are reasonable and the portions are plentiful. They offer some options besides Mexican food. It is small inside and there is some outside sitting in addition to the drive through and the call ahead/pick up options. You can't go wrong. My... More

The regular Al Pastor burritos are 80+% meat - no rice and bean filler that have become all to common in so many competitor's places. The dining area was recent remodeled and looks fancier and brighter than before. The salsa bar is well cared for, refrigerated and kept clean and stocked - and the grilled Serranos in a vinegar-chile type... More

I had lunch just before noon and avoided the long line after 12 o'clock. The restaurant is clean and has a great eat in dining area. There is also a patio area that looks pleasant for good weather. I ate one of the lunch specials. It was great food and bargain priced. There are some vegetarian items on the menu... More

While it's convenient in theory to have a drive-thru taqueria, the convenience loses its appeal when you wait upwards of 15-20 minutes to get your food. Customer service has always been acceptable. The food is decent, but overpriced. There are better places in Woodland to get authentic taqueria-style food.

Great place for a quick, tasty, bite to eat. Service is always good and the food is good. I highly recommend the carnitas nachos.

I love the carnitas plate with flower tortillas and have enjoyed them since the place first opened. However, last Wednesday, I ordered a Taco salad for $7 and I think I found a new taste treat! This place always has a line in the drive-through so I walk in to place my order. During the Yolo County Fair in mid-August... More

Ordered a super burrito. Then some lady came up to tell cashier that she didn't get rice on her order. The cashier then told the lady they didn't have rice. Cashier could of told me that or tell me before hand that there's no rice.
