Great fast stop

We have to add another good review to the others. This is good food, done well with large portions. Would highly recommend and will stop back if coming through town.

Not good food at all. Two of us got sick from eating at this place. Do not recommend whatsoever especially if you do not have access to a toilet!

We were the only customers when we walked in early Sunday dinner. We are not fast food fanatics but we went with the high reviews. I had the stuffed peppers (#16), wife had enchiladas. There was pictures on trip advisor of the peppers, mine looked close but lacked the sour cream and the quantity of sauce, although it was substituted... More

On your standard run- of- the mill Mexican. I just wanted a light lunch after a scuba class. The #3 small burrito plate was just right. Good flavor right portion prepared fresh. I would go back.

Great, quick Mexican food. Very clean. Friendly staff. Glad we saw this place on here and gave it a try! Perfect stop for a quick bite when you are tired of regular fast food.

Don't even think about going to a generic chain restaurant when you could be here. All of our dishes were excellent. The service was basic but very friendly. The range of dinner options was impressive given the size of the place.

We visited this small fast food-no frills restaurant for dinner on an overnight stay in Santa Rosa based on previous Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. There has been absolutely no renovation of the previous KFC/Long John Silver's decor for this restaurant, but that is quickly forgotten once the food is delivered. The food was prepared fresh & you... More
