I stopped in for the chicken enchiladas, (I am on a mission to find the best ones!), after a morning administering tests. The staff was very patient and helpful. This is a quick stop restaurant, though they have a lot of seating available.You can do...More

I'm sure home cooked Mexican would be a little different, but this food is pretty good for a fast food place.Tuesday and Friday are $1.00 taco days. Burritos, in two sizes, are GREAT.

Don't know what it is like on any other day but don't go on Tuesday when tacos are $1.00 each. First of all you get a soggy shell with meat anything else is extra.

I wrote a review of the new guys in town Burrito Parilla Mexicana so I thought I would also talk about an old standby that has multiple locations in the greater metro area. First off no one beats Tuesday and Thursday's value; 1 dollar tacos!...More

Unkept dining area. Several dirty tables and food on the floor. Spoiled carrots and jalapeños. The food tasted far from good and much more americanized. The rice and beans tasted like it came straight from a can. We will not be coming back.

$1.00 tacos every Tuesday and Thursday, what's not to like? A great place for carry out. The restaurant is clean but noisy. If you go in later, the floors get cleaned while your eating, and the smell of disenfectant doesn't enhance the flavor of the...More
