The salsa bar was fantastic. Selection and quality of the food was good. I was most impressed by the gentleman that took our order. I have several food allergies and started asking basic questions. He was very thorough in his answers and even started asking if it mattered if the food was on the same grill or in the same fryer as the allergens. I truly appreciate someone that is accommodating, eager to answer my questions and suggests "safe" foods.

You wouldn't know it by looking at this place, but they do some of the best quick service Mexican food around. They beat all of the full service Mexican places nearby.

The have the typical Mexican fare along with some unique twists on old favorites. Try the Tex Mex burrito with KC BBQ sauce if you're an adventurist.

They also do some non-Mexican items good for kids.

As other reviewer posted salsa bar is great with all you can eat chips to go with it. Burritos are large and tasy and so big they tell you the inside is not hot because they are so big. Wednesday night is the night to go as the margaritas are half off and are very good too.

The freshly-prepared variety of salsas at the salsa bar is worth a visit alone. The burritos are tasty and fresh, with the tortilla toasted just right. I personally love the veggie burrito (but be warned if you are a vegetarian that the rice included in the burrito contains chicken stock.) Nice, clean, FUN atmosphere and affordable prices. Doesn't get much better than this!
