“It's ok but it's missing something”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

I've eaten here before and will probably eat here again but if you compare it to other mexicatesens in the Area it ok but I have to say it is missing something. I don't know what it is maybe music? Flavor? It is something I can't get my finger on yet or may its the sauces they " feel" canned. Anyway I think with just the right sauce and this place could kick tail. But try it for yourself maybe I'm too picky. I'll be back to give a second chance, see ya... Califaz

“Tasty and fast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

My favorite item here is the vegetarian burrito, their beans and flavors are just perfect! This is an easy place to get food to go or dine in. It's family friendly (my son loves their quesadillas) and we've always been happy with the food.

“Amazing burritos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

Great staff, fast service, solid value, don't forget to grab a couple bags of chips as well. They're made right there and actually have flavor. The steak super burrito is my "go-to"' each and every time.
