5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Go there, get the pollo dorado and realize that there is a heaven on earth. Best chain fast food I've ever had.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011 via mobile

Stopped here while looking for a place for a quick lunch on the way to the mountains (just flew in to Denver). Very good food, extremely fast, good value. I got the smothered burrito ($5). It was very good, lots of big pieces of meat, served hot and fresh. I love spicy food and this definitely had a kick to it. Very good though. My father got the quarter white meat ($7). Serving size was very good, chicken looked and tasted excellent. Came with a bunch of tortillas, roasted green onions, roasted jalepeno peppers, rice and beans, and some salsas. All looked fresh and good. The outside and inside don't look like anything special, but the food speaks for itself. Small, limited menu, but what they do have they do very well. Price is very resonable for the quality and portion size.
