This is your basic burrito joint, like Moes or Chipotle. The food here is good, it was nice and hot. I found the service a bit disorganized. There were 7 people running around bumping into each other in one corner of the line, while the rest of the line was empty. It was kinda slow too. I expect all these... More

This place is really impressive. The sauces and any item you get is above the average of like places. Food is high quality. You always leave satisfied with the flavor. The only thing I object to is the added charges for certain items like mushroom, etc. This should be included in the initial price. It's not like these items or... More

We really liked the Izzo concept and the food. The night we were at this particular location they were badly understaffed and getting our orders took longer than expected. Unfortunately we were in a hurry so it was a source of frustration That said - the food was good the options were wonderful and we would definitely go back again.

When a restaurant first opens each day, it is reasonable to expect it to be clean and sparkly. Right? Well, despite our concerns about the state of the trash on the floor just after opening time, we ate there anyway. The food is good and reasonably priced if you watch your add ons. But a sticky table and unclean restroom... More

My children and I have visited several times. Each time we were satisfied with the food (though very expensive),. but the female workers are always rude and hateful. It is as if they hate being there! . The way I see it is we all pay good money to eat here, so at least be polite to your customers

Huge portions, so plan to share with a buddy, or plan on getting a to go box! Great place for picky eaters since you pick your toppings. Build your own meals.

Izzo's will get a bunch of good reviews, then, in a few months, it will be closed. Sad, because it has potential, but bankruptcy is as certain as the sunset for this horrifically managed deli. The idea is good. Its a complete and total Moe's rip-off. Its almost exactly like Moe's, with two huge exceptions - the food is not... More

This place has the best burrito's and Nacho's..Made right in front of you, very delicious and fresh. Many Choices are available, it just gets pretty packed around lunch time, But the lines move quickly.
