I'm sure home cooked Mexican would be a little different, but this food is pretty good for a fast food place.Tuesday and Friday are $1.00 taco days. Burritos, in two sizes, are GREAT.

Don't know what it is like on any other day but don't go on Tuesday when tacos are $1.00 each. First of all you get a soggy shell with meat anything else is extra.

Unkept dining area. Several dirty tables and food on the floor. Spoiled carrots and jalapeños. The food tasted far from good and much more americanized. The rice and beans tasted like it came straight from a can. We will not be coming back.

$1.00 tacos every Tuesday and Thursday, what's not to like? A great place for carry out. The restaurant is clean but noisy. If you go in later, the floors get cleaned while your eating, and the smell of disenfectant doesn't enhance the flavor of the...More

Although the food is good and the service is fast, I found it to be a bit salty; thus an average rating from me.
