“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Place is very small. Alittle expensive for what you get. Been there 3 times, ordered different item each time, and all 3 meals were cold. Cold burritos are not very appetizing. There is too much burrito wrap and not enough stuffing. Served in a plastic basket lined with tissue paper. About two cuts of the burrito and the tissue paper is shredding into your food.

“Fresh food with great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

Fresh local food great service this is the best Mexican restaurant in morganton. I have rat here at least once a month and it always is great. Lots of room outside to eat on pretty days. Burritos are huge. Great bargain.

“Could be a lot better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

This place is similar to Moe's or Chipotle, but not nearly as good (unfortunately because we need more good restaurants in this town). Their prices are a little higher than Chipotle but the food quantity and quality does not compare. Their poor restaurant design lends to the inability of the customer to view the items being offered, so instead of looking at the food items that you are going to choose for your burrito, you must instead read a lengthy menu board. I've been there once and really don't plan on going back, although I love the concept of these types of restaurants.

“Nacho ordinary mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

OK we love this place...this is not a traditional mexican place. Think subway with Burrito and Taco Fixins!! The food is very fresh with a selection of toppings you wont find anywhere else. Pineapple Habanero , Smokie Tomatoes, Fresh Tomato Pico, Corn and Pepper Salsa just to name a few. You can definitely have it your way here. If they have any orange chipotle brownies...do your self a favor a get one.
