I visited while attend professional development nearby. The service was very friendly, patient (as I didn't know what to choose) and fast. Most importantly, the food was great!!

Fast, friendly, and casual! We have been going here for years and enjoy the California Burrito. Kids love the Tacos.

Responding to a previous reviewer, I'm from San Diego, . . . I know this isn't real Mexican, but I'll eat here again. Convenient location to my new home, agreeable prices, ample servings, and super rapid service endeared me to this place. I don't think...More
