Food was tasty and we got it quickly. I would definitely recomment this place. You can either eat in or take away.

I've been going here a few years and they always are consistently good. Good portions for the Grande Burritos. Good, fresh ingredients.

Very good food at a decent price. I liked the beef burrito with all the extras. Hard shell tacos are fried up when you order them. Excellent.

While these are not the most creative burritos I have ever eaten, they are tasty and satisfying and the price is quite incredible. We like to order the Gordo Plate, which includes rice and beans, salsa and a meat or chicken as well as a...More
