Fantastic mom & pop kind of place. All food was great, and fantastic service. Great place in small plaza in town. Definitely worth the short drive.

A great place to stop off to grab a wrap before heading up to the lake. Nice selection of options, with a quick turn around. Tasty and of a decent quality.

This place reminded me of Chipolte. They make a wrap or salad right in front of you to your liking. I had the chicken Caesar wrap - made into a salad both time for under $10. The line can be long but they work quickly...More
