I called in an order for pick up and my food was ready in minutes. What prompted me to write this review was the level of customer service I experienced. I had accidently ordered the wrong item, and upon my return, Gabino, the gentleman who first took order over the phone, was very undersanding and kind. He replaced my order,... More

Traditional Mexican food served quickly and nicely. All fresh ingredients and made on the spot. Definitely worth a stop before a concert at the Orange Peel!

Inviting made to order while you watch quesadillas, tacos and more. Canned or bottled beverages. Try the Mahi Mahi tacos. So busy that staff could not c lean the tables. Impressed by recycling AND compost trash bins. Member of fair wage program.

$4.20 gets you their wake and bake special. Omelette with your choice of fresh toppings and an endless cup of self serve organic coffee with a side of the most lightly breaded yet crispy tator tots I've ever enjoyed.
