This location consistantly has given me very good service and food. I really like the mini chimichongas. They refill soft drinks too. It's very convenient if you are at or near the mall.

We ordered a variety of food and they were all very large portions. We had leftovers for lunch the next day. Chips, salsa and bean dip served while waiting for dinner. Food is ok. My kids were very intrigued by this Sun in the lobby.
