I'm a regular. I order take out weekly during the kids sports seasons. The Peruvian chicken (whole) is juicy and flavorful. The burritos are enormous, the enchiladas are great, and the cheese sauce for their nachos is addicting. Tiny location, handful of tables, always busy. Totally worth it.

My entire family loves the extensive selection Tex-Mex type foods on the menu. I believe my son is addicted to just about everything on the menu. Sometimes it takes a long time before you get your food due to high demand but it certainly always worth the wait.

This is a good place for Texmex food. The portions are good size and prices are fair. Expect a wait on Fridays and weekends. There could be a line out the door.

This is a cozy Mexican take out food restaurant, there are few tables to seat in, every dish they have to offer are great and reasonable price, the portions are generous. I had place an order a while back but for some reason it got mixed with another other, I called the restaurant and they deliver the correct order free... More

Unless we're looking for cheap food, stop here for low priced food with fresh flavors at all times. My favorite usually is a burrito. All ingredients are fresh, and your order is cooked entirely while you wait. I've never been disappointed here.

We have been over 20 times and my son says it's the best restaurant on this planet. I'm a fan! We stick to the burritos and tacos though the menu is huge, loaded with everything from Peruvian chicken to burgers. Consistently good!

Always great and fresh! Our family and friends love that burritos are discounted after 10pm - right when the urge hits!

A great place to grab a quick, healthy fast and fresh meal. Very tasty. Made to order. Vegan and vegetarian options also available. Delicious Salsa as a side.]

limited, cramped seating with shabby south-of -the-border décor, but decent Tex-Mex at reasonable prices. Call ahead if you don't want to stand around for 20 minutes or more.

One of my favorites in the area. Their meals are reasonably priced and its always a good crowd there. Their corn chowder soup is a great lunch onto itself. It has been a steady go-to place for me for years.
