It is a very good and very interesting restaurant, you can have them make your burrito any way you want it. They have a great variety or ingredients, you can put together any way you want it. I recommend this for a great meal.

Don't waste your money. If you want a good burrito with great ingredients go to Pancheros! Flying burrito sucks!!! Do not waste your time. took two hours to get our food for delivery and we live 6 blocks away. Management sucks. Food sucks. that's it!
