This place reminds me of a Chipotle, it's honestly the best Mexican food ice had so far in Montana. I had a steak burrito and it was spot on. The cheese and tortilla was my favorite part. I will be back again soon.

Food is good and fresh. Need to spend less time singing and flipping trays when somebody orders the nachos and keep the long line moving. Not the cleanest dining area, but not the worst.

Great atmosphere and lightning fast service. The food was really good. My wife's taco's looked better than my enchiladas (pork is too sweet for me). In and out in 20 minutes which is perfect for our busy 3yr old. I would go again.
