My sons loves this restaurant, so when we visited recently we had to give it a try. It is very similar to QDoba and Chipotle. Personally I think it’s significantly better than Chipotle, but not quite as good as QDoba. It was very reasonably priced...More

Given the problems that Chipotle had, I must admit that it is nice to find a Mexican restaurant that is along the same lines and is not too expensive. The staff is friendly and efficient. We tried three different items from the menu of create-your-own...More

Had lunch here using a Groupon. $16 for $25 worth of food. It costs just under $25 for two, so our entire meal was covered. The people are friendly. The place is very clean. The food is similar to what you'd find at other chains....More

Not great - you pick what you would like and it's included in your salad, taco, burrito - it's all been done before!!
