This place is so busy that I can't help but feel as though they suffer from the "success syndrome".
Food is always good and one of the best family value meals in the business. Great chicken and many varied sides to complement. Black beans with white rice, yellow rice with veggies or balsamic tomatoes are best choices.
Service and atmosphere are a bit uneven, however. There seems to be a problem keeping up with the crush of business they have in drive-thru and front counter. I have been there twice when they were "out of chicken" ! That is surprising, no?
Drive thru service has left items off on multiple occasions... That's really a pain!
The family meals, however, are abundant and offer numerous choices and can feed 4-5 for @ $25... That's a great value and the salsas and dipping sauces are also good.
So a bit of a mixed bag with great chicken but a service model that has difficulty keeping up.
I gotta recommend it, though.
