“Prices are not Cantina level, true...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2010

Prices are not Cantina level, true. Service and atmosphere are so-so. But some of the menu items are so tasty and tummy-friendly that they have become weekly fare for my household.
Try the El Amigo Burrito, chicken. They must stuff a whole large chicken breast in there; no wonder they're not a price leader! And if you are ever under the weather, the Caldo de Pollo (chicken soup- made from scratch in half hour so be patient) is Amazing!!! If you are looking for $5 dinners and a heart attack, don't eat here - more table choices for me - otherwise, the food exceeds the cleanliness and heathiness of what most mothers can achieve at the same cost.

“Great refried beans and seasoned ground beef burrito's BUT”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2008

THE PRICES are SO OUTrageous! ANd not the friendliest bunch of workers, but I must say their seasoned ground beef was intoxicating. And their refried beans are some of the best. I will admit that I feel their quwality has gone down in the last 4 years.
