“It's okay, if you like waiting awhile for your so-so, not-so Mexican food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

The food is good and tasty, but I wouldn't call it authentic nor would I call it superb like most people in the area tend to rate. The worst thing about this place is that it's usually crowded, so be prepared to wait in line (and have a hard time finding a table) or order ahead and do pick-up instead.

“Good Food, Too Noisy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Really good Mexican Grill. Fast and efficient, the line moves quickly. This cafe serves generous portions of really good burritos, tacos, salads, etc. Just don't plan on having any kind of serious conversation and you won't be the least bit disappointed.

“Tasty Mexican style food that will bring you back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

Not your typical fast food mexican style food. The meat is grilled and doesn't have fillers added to it, two different types of rice and beans to choose from along with a cornicopia of sauces and veggies to make food choices unique to your taste buds. There are choices between, taco's, burritos, salads and casadias along with sides of beans, chips and salsa's. sometimes the lines are long at lunch time but the wait is worth it. If you order the burritos enchilada style it will add a new dimension to what a burrito usually tastes like. This isn't my first time here nor will it be my last, you won't be disappointed if you enjoy your Cal-Mex type food.
