It used to be my most favorite restaurant, but no so much anymore. They are always so busy, so it takes away from the food, they quickly put the food together often missing some items. I ordered a taco meal and it only had a minuscule amount of meat with 5 lbs of lettuce, it looked nothing like the appetizing... More

It moved along pretty good. the food is not real Mexican or even tex mex but it was decent. The cashier was bi-lingual but one of the... More

My mom and I went for lunch today and it was good. Their cooking and serving area could have been cleaner, but the service was good and the food was yummy! We love the sweet pork salads. They gave us extra chips and dressing which doesn't normally happen so that was nice. We had a good experience. Will go again.

Crowded parking lot next to the two mammoth hotels in town but food was good and the atmosphere was good. Even with my young son. I will be back.

This was a great meal! After a long day, this restaurant was in the parking lot of our hotel - so really convenient. It's not a waitressed restaurant, but instead you stand in line to order, pay, and take your food with you to eat there or to go. The line went fairly quick - but if I had a... More

A newer place in town. Uses the successful formula of large quantities of good food for a decent price. Very similar to Chipotle in the bigger cities. Longest part of the meal was waiting in line to order. Popular place for the gas and oil guys and those people staying at the two large hotels nearby. Have to learn to... More

Great food, more of a fast food option than a sit down meal. Got charged for guacamole that should have come as part of the meal, but decent portions of fresh, tasty food.
