I usually do not expect much from these 'quick bite' TripAdvisor places, but since I like cilantro and skirt steak, I thought I would give it a shot. Well, there was no skirt steak on the menu and there was no cilantro to be found...More

I had a typically chicken burrito and it was good. Their menu looks good and they sell beer. Staff was friendly. The only reason I don't give five stars is because the guacamole was almost frozen. I know the day was hot and for that...More
