“Too Expensive/Lacks flavor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Everytime I break down and go through the drive through, I swear I'll never do it again. It is SO expensive to get a handful of taco's and a burrito. Their potato ole's are WONDERFUL (and fattening) but I just can't justify the price over Taco Bell.

Great tasting tacos at a decent price! Not the "authentic" kind, but much batter than Taco Bell !
