Taco Tuesday for dinner; two soft tacos filled with seasoned ground beef, onions, lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, and sour cream drizzled on top. This dish also comes with corn chips. My husband and I shared this meal; we each had a taco. This was plenty for us. Very friendly staff and our meal was as requested, no jalapenos. Good food... More

Lots of sauces and good service but the food is not up to standard. Mi Canun is down the road and is much better.

We eat here a couple of times per month. The staff members are always cheerful and friendly. Prices are reasonable and the food is fresh, carefully prepared and very tasty. We love the hot sauce bar also- there's something for everyone's taste. Taco Tuesday is our favorite day to go. (It's every week of course.)

I often eat lunch here, it fresh & healthy Tex mex food that is consistent in taste & quality. The service team is friendly & attentive - it's a place to fuel up!

Super nice service and great unique foods. Taco tuesdays and Burrito Thursdays are the best. Great specials and good cheese dip. We atre here a couple of times during our trip and both times the food was great.

Too liquidity and terrible overall taste...I figured I try this to alternate between Chipotle and Tijuana flats, but no thanks....This didnt help that my particular location had an employee that was completely rude..Honestly, I dont even care much for the attitude or employee being rude, just fix the damn bowl..it was gross

Our 6 year old grandson likes the kids meal with chicken nuggets, taco chips, apple juice & M&M's. The 'salsa bar' is unique and gives you lots of options to try. It was fun (and funny) to read about how this restaurant began. We are from Illinois so this is a "must" to do each time we visit NC family!

A great stop for healthy, fresh Tex-Mex food! Eat there or take out it a great choice for tacos , tostadas & lots of sauces to choose from to spice up your meal.

What a fun and yummy experience! Had lunch with our three and six year olds who also enjoyed the experience. Hubby is a lover of all hot sauces and thoroughly enjoyed the hot sauce bar.
