I stop in when I am in a hurry. This place is close to where I live and very fast. The staff is great, always smiling. The food is just ok, one of those very few ingredient places mixed in different ways so you can call it something different.

I ordered a quesedilla, and it was horrible. First it was so small, second they hardly put any cheese on it, third the way they prepared it was the equivilant of heating a tortilla in the microwave.

HUGE burritos. The food was ok, I'd come back here if I wanted to be extremely full... but I wouldn't come back if I wanted something wonderfully delicious.
