“Great burritos & daily specials!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

Went on Thursday, Mexican day, where any burrito (around $3.50 each) includes a margarita that is $3.75 on the menu! It's a frozen marg with a sweet twist ( I think they added a bit of grenadine). We were surprised at how tasty it was... we ordered another burrito and split it just to share another marg, it was cheaper than ordering another marg ala carte!

We had the chicken burrito, it is filled with good chicken, beans, roasted onions and peppers and cheese, not sure what else. It comes with a decent serving of round corn chips and a pile of lettuce on the side, as well as an avocado sauce, sour cream, and another tasty sauce.

The decor is fun, as others say. Paraphernalia lines the walls... great to just wander and see them - funny signs, beer bottle labels and cigarette packs from around the world, random pieces of art, scarves, as well as many travel mementos from the owners' own travels - photos with him in them, signs, logos, bumper stickers, etc. Clearly, the owner is a fun guy. He has been there both times we went.

Each table has a system whereby you press buttons for service, your check, etc. It buzzes a watch-like thing strapped to the wrist of the waiter. When we went, we had fun with the waiter, teasing him about pressing it repeatedly... Unlike what someone else said, our service has been great. We have only gone in the afternoon or early evening, not when busy. Maybe that helps?

Each day offers a different daily special - a drink, an appetizer, etc. If you swing by, they will give you a flier with the list. It's great!

“Interesting Decor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2011

Has a trendy, interesting atmosphere. Good food selection. Good pricing. Service was slow and not very friendly, so we haven't been back.
