When I'm in town I always make it a point to stop in and get a bite to eat. Very good fresh food. tip, if you don't want to wait in line just order a bean and cheese burrito, they always keep some ready made, much faster.

There are three El b js near our house. We generally go there and get the 12 tacos. The fry the shell, fill it with meat, then grill it. Then they add the lettuce and cheese.

I had a late lunch here yesterday. It wasn't too busy. It's located in a strip mall. Seated promptly and drinks came quickly. Tea was watered down though. You receive chips and a very good salsa. I had a combo plate which included a shredded beef taco, cheese enchilada, and frijoles. It was on two plates. I didn't taste the... More

Been here 3 times and I always liked it. Servings are filling. They give chips and salsa while you wait for your order.

I don't know if all of these restaurants are as bad as this one, but it was a bad experience. Ordered tosada and the tortilla was soggy and it was 90% lettuce. Also got a bean enchilada which had no flavor and a chicken taco. The taco did have a ton of meat. Overall wished I had gone somewhere else.
