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.

Moderately expensive, poor quality mexican... Went for lunch. Got Chicken Enchilada plate. Fair rice, dry tortilla, precooked, dry cut up chicken and way overpriced ($9.50) for a chicken enchilada plate? Should be less. Veg chili was terrible... tomatoey broth with some beans and a few pieces of zucchini... Not hearty at all. Not nearly the quality of other "Whole Enchildas"... More

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.

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

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"

As i was driving my way through CT, I punch in on my gps mexican food, the whole enchilada restaurant comes up.
