Prepared to my taste, rather large portions, plenty of space for my party of 12 to eat comfortably. I just wish there had been live music we could have enjoyed while dining.

The food is fantastic, the real deal. Every visit is a culinary delight!!! Suggestion, request grilled onions on top of your burrito, outrageously delicious. The tacos, best I've ever eaten, yum! The staff, very friendly and helpful. A real gem in Manchester.

Best reason to go is the fresh ingredients - everything made to your request! No premade slop here - they will even substitute items to make you happy. Great combos.
