I always order from Bubbakoos Burrito and the food is always hit or miss. We ordered tacos, chili and fresh hot salsa for delivery. Food was very good. Only complaint was that food came 1/2 earlier than requested. I am a fan!

The mahi tacos were tasty and there was a good amount of fish in them. Service was efficient. Meal a bit expensive for what it was. Pleasant atmosphere

This food was terrible. The place was dirty , we stuck to the seats . the food was cold no flavor and it cost a fortune. The second visit was exactly the same way this will not get a third visit from us. .
