“Chips & salsa are the only appetizing thing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

I used to really love this restaurant, but the quality of the food is simply horrible now! They only have 3-4 items on their "lighter side" menu, which wasn't necessarily low-cal. I got a regular flour tortilla with shredded cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes, stringy iceberg lettuce, and undercooked "grilled" chicken. It came with a funky-tasting spicy ranch sauce. I love Ranch dressing and almost anything spicy, but I don't know what this sauce was even supposed to taste like. Alongside my taco-bell-equivalent was a cup of tortilla soup. I'm a fan of tortilla soup at most restaurants, but this was primarily made up of cheese and soggy tortilla strips. In fact, it was 80% cheese, 10% tortilla strips, and 10% broth. I spent about $12, but could have gotten the same meal at a fast food joint. Won't ever go back, as it is just a waste of money for subpar food.
