Friendly, casual, local.

Great neighborhood spot for casual dining with counter service and plenty of seating now that they have expanded the dining room. Friendly, fast service with a cooler stocked with Mexican sodas, as well as your other typical beverage selections.

I've actually had 2 ppl say this is a "great" place. But, I wasn't that impressed with it. I have no reason to dislike it though. I ate my entire salad. The ingredients didn't "look" as appealing to me as what these two ppl told me. To each their own I guess. The staff was pleasant and courteous. Parking was... More

Had an everything burrito and a steak salad with a friend. Lots of ingredients ready to put on your order, you just pick or point. The burrito was too big for one person, cut in half and took home the rest for the next day. The salad was served in a house made tortilla shell. Salad was fresh and crispy,... More

Stopped by here Thursday evening for the first time. Pretty much set up like a fast food restaurant. The woman behind the counter was very helpful and kind enough to explain the menu dishes. I got the chicken quesadilla - mmmmmm, so cheesy and delicious. For some reason, you're only allowed 2 items on the quesadilla (in addition to beans... More

Just had a great lunch at Chili Peppers. My first time here and was a little nervous when I first walked in. We were getting their about 12:30 and had limited time to eat but we had no problems getting our food and place to sit. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Being my first time, I did not realize...

Small neighborhood place. Best burritos in town. All fresh ingredients and great service. Much better than Chipotle or Qdoba

This is a regular stop on my visits to Cleveland. At least once each trip. You can't get any more fresh. They make everything right in front of you. The prices are reasonable, and the people could not be nicer. One of my favorite spots.

It's very similar to Chipotle and Qdoba. Everything is fresh and has good flavor. The portions could be better but not bad at all. I've only ever had the "bowl" which is actually served on a plate lol. They also sell bottled Coke products so I was able to have a Vanilla Coke with my meal!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the food. It is sooooo fresh and wonderful. I just can't say enough about Steve and his staff. The fish tacos on Friday are GREAT and be sure to get Steve's special sauce for them. I'm in love with their Mexican ice tea and have finally figured out how to make it at home. The lime... More
