“Great paella burrito!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Every time I come here, I get the paella burrito with shrimp, scallop, sausage and cheesy rice. Very filling and very good. I also like the salsa bar with a good variety of fresh salsas to choose and sample.

“They used to be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

For what ever reason they love to use old avocados. I've stopped ordering anything with guac or avocados because it's just gross. They also roll their burritos the wrong way. As you eat from the end you get a section of rice, then a section of beans then a section of sour cream, etc. The ingredients should be laid out length wise so you get more of a mix with each bite rather than a bite of just sour cream. This should be burrito basics 101. Even with those complaints they're still pretty good.

“Consistently very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Loved their food in the '90s and a decade later I'm loving their food again now that I'm back in town. They offer good food, they're consistent and they have some creativtity in their offerings. Always love a good salsa bar too.

“delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

Seeing as it is extremely unlikely that I will venture into Davis ever again, I will miss this amazing, fresh and healthy food forever. Try the mahi mahi.

“Great food, quick service, noisy atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

I almost always stop here on my monthly trips to Davis. The food is fresh and enlightened, the location is near where I do other errands. The counter help is friendly and your order is prepared for you as you wait. I like the variety of Davis folks who come through. I am a complete fan except that the place is noisy like a gym and therefore not as relaxing as I would prefer.
