A great place for a fast Mexican style lunch or dinner. The food and prices are very reasonable. Burritos,tacos,enchiladas and ensaladas are their specialities

Biggest problem here was the buildup and then the subsequent let down. Heard such good things only to be under-amazed......... had the namesake Purple Burrito which I highly DON'T recommend.

Good Quick Mexican Food with little time taken. Friendly staff, mostly self service for patrons. Pretty wide menu for a fast food place. Good selection of salsa too. I would suggest an earlier open time for the breakfast burrito and taco sales. (9:00 or 10:00 AM is kind of late)

I stopped in and got a California burrito, it came with chips, I also got the $1.50 churro which was amazing, this is a great stop, nice and quite and a huge amount of food for the price. I have stopped here twice now and both times couldn't eat all of the food they give you. The decor is plywood... More

We were ordering food for our kids and when he rang up the order it was a lot more than what was posted on menu board. When we asked him why it wasn't that price he said menu board is wrong. Pretty frustrating you think your paying one price and its actually a lot more. Just fix the prices so... More

I got the fish taco and the carne asada taco. Both were good but the fish taco was my favorite. it was delicious. I can't wait to go back and get another... More

Delicious, had the purple burrito, el pastor taco, lengue taco, and carnitas chimichanga. Way better and more authentic than I was expecting. Tacos are ala carte and simple, offer menudo, lengue, horchata etc. If I lived here this would be a regular stop.

We ate here because we've heard the food was good. I had a chimichanga, which I thought was pretty good and it was huge, portions are definitely big here. My wife had a burrito, and didn't really like it that much. We also got chips and queso, but the queso was in a tiny little Styrofoam container and was gone... More

Only because I'm from the great state of Arizona I can't give this review 5 stars. Having said that, I think this is a great place to eat when in town and craving carne asada!
