“Amazing Overall”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

I am from Guadalajara Mexico and came to visit Disneyland. On the way I decided to try this place out after seeing their grill outside, and it was one of the greatest decisions I've ever made! Their deals are super affordable and come with tons of food. Best of all, the authentic taste reminds me of back home. Will definitely make a visit to this place every time I'm in the area again!

“Great food at a great price”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

We'd been meaning to try this place on past trips out to Disneyland and finally did it this Nov. Good food and plenty of it in the family meal, we should have ordered on our first night there to have enough time to eat it all over the course of the trip! We will definitely order again when we are back this year.

“Excellent Mesquite Chargrilled Flavor”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Wow. This hole-in-the-wall chicken restaurant did not look like much on the outside, but the food was amazing.

The chicken plate had a lot of smoked flavor (get the dark meat as it is moist). We also got a carnitas quesadilla which was a generous portion and a large carne asada nacho plate. GREAT FOOD.

I particularly liked the salsa which the cashier told me they make fresh daily. I will definitely come back here.
