“Quick, Fresh and Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

This place is close to home, so it's convenient to stop by and get dinner to go. They are always busy, so if you're in a big hurry, you might not want to stop here. The staff is very friendly and the line moves fairly quickly, if the person ordering knows exactly what they want, but since everything is made to order, you may have to be a little patient. It's worth the wait though. I'm hooked on the barbacoa burrito (get it enchilada style). It's very affordable and the portions are generous.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

We ordered a burrito and chicken nachos, there was enough food to feed all 3 of us. When we ordered the nachos the employees began to sing Nacho Nacho man.

“Welcome Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

It is not just another Mexican chain restaurant. The food is made to order and is full of great tastes. The restaurant is friendly and fast and always busy. The nachos are my favorite, especially with all the toppings. Recommended for families and singles.

“Everything is divine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We were so excited when this opened up! Everything is so good, fresh, and made from scratch. You may have to wait in line to get your order but it is worth the wait. They give out free cheese tortillas with a strawberry for kids. Try it, you will LOVE it!
