Before we could even get to the counter she let us know they were closing in 5 mins. So we left because it sure appeared they didnt want our business. So i guess they closr at... More

Wonderful burriotos, excellent items that you do not find elsewhere, like the roasted pototoes. The prices are kinda stiff, but I usually get two meals out of what I order here. I love the paintings and the places is usually clean and well kept.

This is a great lunch spot. It is a hidden gem as you don't know it is really there until you are past it. You order at the counter and the food is brought to your table. The salsa and queso is very good! Reasonably priced food and good!

This place is a bit of a dive, which did not bother me at all. The service was Great! The food was pretty good. We all had Burritos.....Good flavor and Large portions! I would have giving a higher rating except for the two things. One the rice in the burritos was a little under cooked. Also, the salsas were a... More

Stopped here for dinner before heading back home for the evening. Ordered the jerk burrito with tofu and my friend ordered the jerk tacos. Out food arrived and my friend described the chicken in her taco as really overdone and bland. She described the rice as the "rice that was boiled in garbage water." My burrito had ok flavor, but...

We ordered the nachos on our visit. The food was good; but not special. Protein options included steak or chicken - both my spouse and I wished they had ground beef available, which would have worked better with nachos. The restaurant itself is not well decorated - and was cold the day we went. They had the air conditioning still... More

We love trying little hole in the wall places and this is definitely one of them. The food was different but good if you like Tex Mex. And you must try the fried Brussel sprouts they are banging.

Stopped in for a late afternoon meal and couldn't have been more pleased with the service or food offerings. Anything you want to build a burrito, they have it! All of the ingredients were super fresh and delicious. Will definitely go again when I'm back in town!
