This restaurant is my staple! The food is fast, fresh and the staff is friendly and efficient. Everything I have tried has been outstanding. Better than Mexican food in Chicago!

The service was quick and the food was served unbelievably fast. Taste was what I would consider average for Mexican fare and priced reasonable
