I came here for lunch and asked the group of people in line in front of me what's good, one guy spoke up, "Everything!" He was right, well so far, I'm going again tomorrow. Lots of fresh ingredients to choose from. The beans tasted like they just came out of the crockpot. Black and pinto! I got a burrito, but... More

Great quick Mexican food. The ingredients are fresh, and there are a lot of choices. Staff is really friendly. My only complaint is that there is always a long wait at lunchtime. They recently remodeled but it doesn't look like they added any space.
