Service was friendly and prompt. Sampler tray was nice size, but chips weren't heated. Guacamole seemed to be blended with cream cheese, I like it and the mango salsa. My wife likes the queso. Burrito could also have used more heat (not spice). It was the least busy restaurant. I'd only come back under same circumstance.

If you are in Boone you have GOT to eat here! The ambiance was perfect, the food was delicious and filling and the service was great. Small restaurant off a side street but if you are in the area it is a MUST!

The service was super slow and burrito guy in back was dancing while rubbing his nose the whole time he was wrapping! (It was literally dripping). Our order came out wrong 3 times! It was snowing out and 30 degrees, yet staff refused to close the door to the outside as multiple patrons asked. Of the 10 of us who... More

Floor and tables are very dirty. You build your own burrito (menu is very confusing) and you order at the bar...no servers. Employees could care less if you're there or not. We were very disappointed, not going back.

They double booked bands and cancelled the one band we were there to see just hours before the gig. The band that was there sucked. Service was slow and horrible. The food was a let down.

Three of us tried three different burritos...The Jerk, the Ragin' Cajun, and Thai Me Up. All three were excellent. Be aware that the salsa served on top of The Jerk and The Ragin' Cajun is no joke and has some kick. We loved all three but the winner for us was the Thai Me Up. I actually like inside, reminds...

I think the review title pretty much says it all but to be fair I will elaborate. You wait in line and order at a bar. There are no servers. Yet the have a tip jar prominently displayed at the register. For what? The floors and tables were filthy. It looked like the floors hadn't been mopped in weeks and... More
