The burritos are huge, too much for me so I order the kid's burrito. Usually restaurants won't serve the kid's menu to adults, but not here. The small burrito is just enough to satisfy my craving without any leftovers. I always get a chile relleno...More

This place is nearby my work location, so I'm occasionally tempted to go down there and grab a burrito for lunch. It's mostly quick, but the system is a single line, and the place is pretty popular, so if you are behind someone who is...More

I would give this venue 4 stars based on their super burrito. However, my wife ordered the enchilada plate, and the enchiladas were absolutely tasteless ( I tasted them). The service is friendly and welcoming, but they need to intensify the flavors a bit (I'm...More

This is a small taqueria that is family owned and operated. I have been a customer for several years and have always found the food to be fresh and plentiful. Service is usually fast and friendly with the ability to watch food being prepared.

The food here is delicious. If you are not a carnivore try the cactus and vegie burritos. I love the hot sauce. There is almost always a wait but you can call ahead.

Everything is made fresh-cooked on site. There...More

This place would be perfect if they got down their burrito-making system! Totally inefficient way of making them where one guy makes them, another asks you what you want, and a third person rings you up. It's all fine and dandy until you get behind...More
