Not very good at all!! Got a steak burrito and the meat was dry and terrible. Salsa sucked and queso was terrible. Did not taste good at all. Not fresh. Would never go here again...not even for a drink.

Always good food and a great sense of humor from the staff! Crunchy BBQ Ranch burrito is the best!
