Good, fresh food all the time

Food is fresh, employees seem to care about quality of orders. It's a bit on the high side.. a burrito will be $8-9 which is great for sit down, but this is primarily take out. You won't be disappointed though.

We eat here regularly as a Sunday treat and love the place. Burritos are terrific- flavorful and filling but we don't feel 'heavy' afterwards. The service is friendly- I'd even say outstanding. Just a really good fast good spot. You should try it

I was told to what to expect from friends. I figured I would give it a shot and came away disappointed. It was fresh food, but was lacking in many different ways, beans were not well drained causing soggy tortilla. Chicken was slightly rubbery and flavorless. Pricy for what you get, not much else to say.

We love The Whole Enchilada and visit almost once a week for either take out or a quick meal in the restaurant. Everything is fresh and made quickly. The have quite a number of on-going specials and the different soups / chili's are delicious as well. VERY family friendly, very fast and we haven't had a meal that we haven't... More

although we walked in and waited a long time, the food was cold and horrible. It was served in foil paper in a plastic basket and vary disappointing.

I live in Arizona where the Mexican food is generally very good. Went to this place and was very disappointed in their food.

Have eaten here twice once for take out and once for sit it. The decor, and staff are nice. The food is average and the prices are high. As stated above "A step above Taco Bell"

This place was clean, and the service is ok, but the food...probably the most tasteless Mexican food I have ever eaten. There were three of us, all Mexican food lovers, and no one was impressed. It was as if they went to the frozen food section of the local supermarket and bought the cheapest brand of everything they could find,... More
