“Much better than a chain "taco" restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Both the food and the prices were better than one can get at any nationally advertised "taco" restaurant. In fact, if you want a quick taco or burrito that has flavor, this is the place.

“Mexican made to your liking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012

This is a great little counter service restaurant with locations in Canton and Potsdam. I love the pico de gallo and often get it loaded on my taco salad or "little earn". Portions are huge so bring your appetite!

“Pretty good food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2011

This is the Subway of Mexican foods. Build your own baby sized buritto with home made salsa, or other canned salsas, add veggies and go. Service was great, food was good, place was clean. Price wasn't too bad either. Would eat here again.

“Fast-Healthy-Inexpensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2011

Love this place- great selection of things to stuff in that burrito- how they manage to roll it up is beyond me- my son got a ground beef and I got a veggie burrito- the darn things weigh about two pounds each!! Much better for you than taco bell and the food quality is much better!!
I like this place a lot- will be back!
