The pork burrito is awesome and it was well priced, good quick stop by the home depot. We stopped here after getting some groceries and everyone was hungry. We are all glad we stopped here.

We ate chicken in a barrel after reading reviews on here and it met our expectations. The special platter is ample to feed two people that on a scale of 1-10, 10 being super hungry, were around a 5-6. PROS Service - very nice people...More
