The only reason I don't give 5 stars is because sometimes you have a longish wait to get your food. Other than that, I've never,had a bad meal there. And I go pretty regularly.

Amazing selections of buritos, tacos, nachos, etc and available in vegetarian. Before or after lunch hour to avoid the long queue. Huge servings value for money. Nice variety of sauces to try. So check it out and you'll wanna come back again for more.
