No drink refills on soft drinks ! Large soda $2.00 refill $ 1.00. No more, had enough of this ! My drink preference cost more than the food I consumed... also, can't seem to get condiment cups for sales, etc ... even has a plaque on wall for serving size suggestions!!!

Whether I've eaten there or done take-out I've always enjoyed consistently good Mexican food. No, they don't give you unlimited salsa like at El Pollo Loco or Baja Fresh, but if you pack the coffee cup they give you there's enough to go around. Pair it with their chips and you've got something great to go with street tacos, burritos,... More

One of our favorite places for us to take out. You can eat there, but they always wrap our items so they are still warm when you get home. Love the tacos, burritos and taco salads. I tried the enchiladas one time and I didn't like the sauce.

All the food here is delicious, but I am in a rut. Their breakfast burrito is the best in town - but you have to ask the cook if he wants to make it - I think it makes a mess of their grill. But I've never been turned down.

This is a little family owned restaurant with great food! The portions are large so bring an appetite. The prices are great for the quality that you receive. I generally judge by the condiments, and they are perfect. I recommend their carnitas and asada. Try a torta and squeeze some lemon on it.

This little place has the standard fast food fair of Mexican food, with beef, chicken, & pork, but also includes fish tacos and burritos and serves generous portions. The flavors are a bit elevated from the fast food chains offerings and you can choose and serve your own condiments. Indoor seating is comfortable, but this restaurant is 2 doors down... More

We found this place by accident because we needed something quick and somewhat healthy. When we entered, we almost left because of dirty tables and teenagers chatting behind the counter, but the smell of the kitchen kept us there. I had fish tacos, my sister had flautas, and my mother had the tilapia(which is only served on fridays but they... More
