This place is so good! We loved the vegetarian nachos, calamari fritos and pulled beef burrito! Also, Jarritos are divine! A great place for a tasty meal!

The best in town! I took chances trying it out and now I'm hooked! The food and service are excellent. I wish they have more chains all over. I strongly recommend this place! I'm definitely a regular now.
