We love this place! I always get the combo #4 which is a chicken sandwich topped with green chili, onions, and cheese. Super good and also pretty big. I can never finish it! Their curly fries are also awesome. Definitely a must go!

Stopped in for the first time today and have the combo special. Basic cheeseburger, 1/4 pound on a regular sized bun covered with green chili, sautéed onions and cheese. Burger patty was very thin but covered the bun. I felt that it was an average...More
