Our first experience was a good one and we keep going back. Limited menu but the food is good. Guacamole is very good. Made fresh. The shrimp bowl, chicken salad & burritos are good as well. Staff is very friendly.

After over a year of waiting, this place remodeled and totally updated its space and menu. It was worth the wait! Quicker easier ordering at counter- and they bring your food. I had quesadillas - loaded. Delicious. Great for quick lunch or dinner !
