I've never really understood the hype surrounding Cheechako. As a local, I hear people affectionately referring to it as Cheech, and recommending it highly all the time. But every time I have gone the food has been... well, sub par. The creativity is great -- I once got a seafood dish where the burrito was shaped like sushi -- but... More

You order the food and then you sit down at a table and a waitress brings out your food. While you wait at your table there is a game built into the table. The food is excellent. I believe they do take out and deliver in the city.

I like the burritos. Lots of choices, and most are unique. However, every time we order for delivery, it costs more and more. A burrito will cost $10-$11. Not worth it. Will not be ordering again.

Fun menu, delicious food, nice presentation, good vegetarian options, all-around an excellent choice! Im not sure if they still have the Lando, one of my faves, but I cannot recall a single menu item that I did not enjoy.

More of a takeout place than eat-in. Place order at counter & food brought to you. Restaurant very cold--but was a cold winter day outside. Would go for takeout again.

Very tasty, wide variety of tacos and love how the shells are slightly hardened in their cooking process. Kind of a cross between a soft taco and and a hard shell. Simple and clean sitting area. A little on the expensive side for what it is but worth it once in a while for a special treat!

This place is simply AMAZING. The staff is super friendly and the food was delicious! Great atmosphere that was very friendly and inviting; we could definitely find ourselves studying there for finals! Also the owner is very nice and donated gift cards for a fundraiser our a cappella group, Minor Adjustments, was hosting! He went above and beyond for our... More
