While visiting Los Alamos we visited this restaurant. The food was really good! The service was awesome and they served very quick. The burritos are huge! Loved their guacamole.

Everything there is great. Nice selection of vegetarian options, too. We buy their food by the bag full for our northern New Mexico travels. Wished it was warm enough to sit outside and enjoy the view.

Stopped in here after touring the Bradbury museum. We asked one of the front desk guys for a good place to eat. His answer was "Home" but after pressing him he said this wasn't too bad. It was good food. I am not Mexican or...More

The breakfast tacos are so delicious, I crave them every morning. The staff is friendly, and efficient, not too much waiting, and the food is fresh, and cooked to perfection!!

You order at the counter and pick up your meal when your number is called. They have a great variety of food. Friendly and quick service.

We ordered our food and after picking it up, we looked for a table at this order and pick up at the counter and buss your own table place. However, not one table was clean and we noticed both trash cans were full to overflowing....More

Walk up to the counter, place your order, find table and they will call your number when your food is ready, you go pick it up. 6 of us had a quick lunch here. Burritos, burgers, tacos. All were happy. Quick, tasty, unpresumptious
