Really love this place. Went twice this past week. Food is good and fresh, did both burrito and a bowl-rito and for my taste I thought the bowl was better. Great for kids too. Everyone can get it how they like it. Carnitas were fantastic...More

Fish tacos were yummy and our favorite was the steak nachos! Good value and fast food. Limited seating & parking, but great for a quick bite!

Not fancy and limited seating (and parking is minimal) but really good tacos especially shrimp. Ask for the secret sauce. Friendly staff and clean kitchen. Many fine Mexican staples available including large(!) and small burritos. Drink choices are extensive. Fair prices. Like!

Love this place! You can choose your own ingredients for your tacos/burritos/bowls/salads just like Chipotle, but it just seems more "authentic" since it has more of a hole-in-the-wall vibe than a nationwide, fast food chain vibe. It also has more options than Chipotle (like shrimp)...More
