Good Mexican Food

It's very small, limited seating, but we were able to get the only seat they have (L shaped table could seat 2 groups) . We had tacos, guacamole & a burrito. The price was good, quality of... read more

I dropped in after reading so many good reviews and anticipating a yummy fish taco. Unfortunately, the catfish was way over grilled to the point of being dry and hard. It was extremely spicy, I couldn't even taste the fish - just charcoal and spice. The veggie burrito we ordered was also spicy and it wasn't noted on the menu... More

This is more of a take out restaurant, it's VERY small with limited seating inside and outside. There's alot of options and they give big portions, we tried the burritos and you could tell all ingredients were fresh. Their kitchen is also open so you are able to see that everything is clean which is a plus. Would certainly return!

This is my go-to place for takeout. I love the quality of their ingredients and the fresh flavors in every selection. Current favorites are the steak and shrimp burrito, the seared tuna taco, and the veggie (guac and portobello) burrito. The shrimp tacos/burritos are also great. Place your order well ahead of time, because this place gets crowded QUICKLY. Seating... More

Great pork belly taco. Good for takeaway limited seating. Chips and salsa were average. Burritos are huge. Food was served promptly.

I consider myself a burrito maniac. I love them. I had the chicken burrito and it was wonderful. Very fresh ingredients. The salsa was perfect as well as the chips. There is limited seating but it doesn't much matter because the food is so good! Some other burrito chains make burritos that are so filling they hurt, these seemed to... More

we ordered a selection of Tacos and one quesadilla, loved everything. The pork belly quesadilla was extremely delicious as was the maple chicken and the tuna taco. When I asked my friend what was good, she said, I can't tell you, 'cause I'd just end up reading you the whole menu. There is a tiny seating area with blasting AC... More
