“burrito v. enchilada”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

My husband had the carne asada burrito-it was huge and he said it was pretty good; I had the chicken enchiladas and they were dry, no flavor to the chicken; and the tortillas were not "grilled" or softened, just like right out of the bag.....dunno. The beans and rice were okay, nothing to write home about. Enjoyed eating outside except for the homeless people constantly walking by.

“Amazing food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

If you are looking for great Mexican food this is it! Love the variety on the menu and the friendly customer service. It's tough to find a seat inside during peak hours but outside dining is always a good option.
