Great food, service as fast as you want it, with a great south of the border tasty fare. Different specials of the day as well as Daily Specials, or those featured every Tuesday, etc. are offered. The chips and salsa are not to be missed

Ate there this evening, we had the Seafood Enchilada Dinner & the Golden Taco Dinner. Very large servings, we both took half home for an entire other meal. Very good, will go back. Only complaint is chips & salsa is $2.49....

Just ate there today with my school retirees' group! Then want to come here every. single. month! I usually get the chicken wet burrito with "white sauce". The chips and salsa are good, not free though. I also like their taco salads, fajita salad, and tapopo salad. I get to see everything my friends choose and it all looks good!... More

I have eaten here often and the service is always excellent and the food is also excellent.. The Topopo Salad is my favorite. They have really good chips and salsa and their prices are reasonable... Highly recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant has been in several locations, but one thing never changes. That is the quality and taste of their food. I love wet, stew beef burritos. But everything is always great tasting.
