“bland food for mexican”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

poor quality and food is tasteless. The sauce they use for enchilada is out of a can. The food is over priced and the service is slow, the place is so small inside that you can hear the next table talking. I will not go there ever again and if you want good mexican food go across the street to Randy's Bar and Grill where they know how to prepare mexican food.

“Disgusting! These people are both rude and ignorant!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We took our 1-1/2 year old here who is extremely allergic to shellfish. We asked the server if they prepare any food together with Shellfish...a simple question...right? Apparently not for these morons...both the person behind the counter and the server acted like we were from Mars, they continually asked "why? And what's the issue" we explained that it's a life threatening issue and they rolled their eyes at us. We left! These people don't deserve to be in business plain and simple!!!

“One of my favorites!”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

As a resident of Benicia, this is one of my favorites. Great food, good service, and fast! A great deal for a really reasonable cost. The chile rellano is so wonderful. And the chips and salsa - wow!!!

“Delicious.”
Reviewed February 10, 2009

Bland burritos? Not at this place. Sometimes it is crowded and you have to wait (it's a pretty small place), but everytime I've been there it's been worth it, even if the service is a little slower than some like.
