“Mexican done Subway style..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Funky new joint in a great location on Lake St. Love the windows that open out to the street and the bar well stocked with Tequila. Burritos are made for you Subway style and stuffed full. While it is not authentic Mexican it is a different option for a quick lunch in a funky atmosphere which can all be taken in with a Corona in hand. I suspect it would make a great after-work stop :-)

“Messy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Went for lunch here with my husband. We both had burritos with beef and rice, sour cream, cheese salsas, guacamole and sauces. Was very tasty. I do have a bone to pick though... When it got to the stage of choosing our salsas there were no utensils used by the counter staff! One gloved hand dips into the cheese, then the lettuce and from salsa to salsa - with the same messy gloved hand! Ick! I'm sorry but it's not hard to use spoons and tongs to serve these items up. Hygiene practices need to be increased before I return that's for sure!
