Lived in Modesto for most of my life and truly miss this restaurant. It is a "must-stop" every time I visit. The Mexican food is cooked without lard, which is almost unheard of in Mexican-style cooking. The food is always fresh and the salsa is amazing.

I eat here 1-2 times per month as I work nearby. I love their chimichangas and bean burritos. They have daily specials also that are a nice addition to your meal. The portions are decent size. I always have left overs. I have only been through the drive-thru and it is fairly fast.

Although the portions seemed small, the food was ok. Service was friendly but not especially fast. I hadn’t expected the stark Burger King decor or having to take a not-so-clean-looking key outdoors to use the restroom.

Enjoy the food, but I always need to check the food if I ordet take out. Toomany times it is wrong! It's not hard to get the order correct. I suggest the person taking the order needs to read it back to the customer. I do recommend you sit & eat instead of take out!

Very tasty burritos with lots of delicious ingredients. Two people can eat a great lunch for less than $5.
