Every time I go here one thing that I love is that the food always tastes the same. Very consistent. If you aren't a fan a grilled meets it probably is the place to eat for you. If you do call in an order to pick up, be prepared, sometimes it's longer than the 10 minutes they tell you.

The food tasted good. There's some hype about this place and there was a wait for carry out. Sat at the bar. Open kitchen. Horrified at the multiple episodes of cross contamination between raw and cooked steak. I left before I could see what they did with the chicken. Just too frightening. I will not be back.

Traveled 45 minutes just to eat here, the meat was so tough that it took me about 20 minutes to eat half of just one taco....I have never had such tough meat before...

What a great place for an authentic Mexican meal. It's more of a fast food Mexican meal but it is superb. The banana milkshake is great. Be sure to get the egg in it. It is Mexican style so a bit different then your typical American shake but it is great. They also have imported coke. This is the stuff... More
