“Great takeout Mexican”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

We called in our order this time around. We ordered the Carne Asada Burro with Guacamole, Sophia's Special which is a burro with Green Chile Pork, the two kids Bean and Cheese Burros. The Carne Asada Burro had copious amounts of meat and guacamole - they surely did not skimp on the meat. Portions were large. The kids loved their burros. Chips and salsa were great too.

“Decent food”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

It's average/good. . . a couple steps above fast food. But we like it. We call ahead and go thru the drive thru pick up window, very convienent after a long day at work.

“Don't be confused”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

We went here-obviously by mistake. I assumed that this place was the same as Mattas Grill and Cantina (which had been recommended to us). This can best be described as Mexican fast food served cafeteria-style. The first hint as to what was to come greets you as you walk in the door; you order your food from a menu board which simply lists the available choices-with no accompanying descriptions as to what each dish includes. You order and pre-pay up-front which makes deciding on a tip a bit of a guessing game (we left the tip on the table after dinner). They give you a plastic number which you display on your table as a beacon for the wait staff when your food is ready-which it was in a fairly short time. Chips and salsa were complimentary. It appeared that there was a 'bottomless' supply of fountain drinks and many patrons took advantage of this. The food was cheap-another warning sign perhaps- and mine was not very tasty. My chorizo burro had a mushy sausage(?) with a mystery ingredient that looked like and had the texture of egg (?). My wife enjoyed her pork burro. Each dish came with a small, crisp green salad. We will not be back but it appeared to be popular as it was quite busy by 6 pm on a Thursday night with several families with small children.
