I hate to pan any local restaurant but I've given this place a couple tries and it's just so-so. The beef is tough and not well trimmed. The price is a bit high for the quality of the food. The atmosphere is below average and the proximity to the chicken plant and its sometimes questionable odors makes sitting outside to... More

This place is so great. It's small and quaint and VERY easy to miss. The ingredients are fresh and this is not a chain! I actually think it is run mostly by family. They also serve great craft beers from local distillers.

One of the best places to eat in Morganton. Everything is fresh. Chose what you want to put on your burritos, tacos, etc. Ingredients are fresh. Worth waiting in line for. Few seats but have never had a problem. Most people take out. They do have outside eating. Daily specials. Very friendly servers. Best of all - food is excellent.... More

A great place to get a meal that you custom design. The portions are outstanding and there is usually a line that moves quickly. You will be full when you leave.

If you want fast, fresh and good food this is your place. I always get the small nachos ( the regular is huge!) And the food is always fresh and the steak is juicy and flavorful. Can't go wrong with MB!

The most consistently great burrito place I've ever been. I stop here every time I go to Fonta Flora or on the way to Asheville.

There are only a handful of restaurants in town that seem to fill a need. This restaurant is one of those few. While not large in size, they are large in flavor and service. Selections are limited but the configuration of those selections are many and always fresh. The food, I would have to say, is filling and delicious. The... More

The food itself taste good. The burrito bowl is always my go to choice, I feel I get the most bang for my buck that way. Lately, it seems like the staff are some serious Debbie Downers. It'd be nice to see a smile every once in a while. Oh, and I wouldn't bother with the corn tortillas for the... More

The food is great and the atmosphere is fantastic. They use fresh local sourced foods much of the time. They have a great menu to please most palates. They have also expanded into the Lenoir area. Eat there often!

Use to be a great place to eat. Prices have gone up staff has gotten rude. Would rather drive to Hickory and go to Chipotle than stop here. Sad to say.
