Great little place. Ordered the grilled chicken burrito. Chicken was grilled just right and burrito was filled (but not over filled) with rice, black beans, guacamole, cheese and fresh lettuce. Also enjoyed the bottled sodas from Mexico.

I gave this review a 4 due to the inconvenience of the seating. Even though they were busy, our food came out within 10 minutes of ordering and it was really good and fresh. There's only 2 tables and 5 high top seats. When you...More
