If you ever tried Cafe Rio food on west coast (SoCal) then you will hate this place, but if you are new to it you might enjoy it. Large portions as usual. Tortillas are a poor stale version of fresh flour tortilla. Rice has something green added to it that tasted rancid. Barbacoa pork meat was ok, Carne Asada steak was tough and dry. Beans were straight from the can and not the best selection, but guacamole and pico-de-gale was ok. Sauces were ok. Tres leches was a joke, nowhere near what it's supposed to be either in taste or texture.

Steak burrito was great as was the sweet pork on a salad. Ordering process is a lot like Moe’s but food is tastier. Five salsas/sauces to choose from. Nice sized portions (if not too hungry, two people can split a salad or a burrito). Tortilla soup was delish and the shredded chicken in it was tender.
