I grab breakfast tacos here a few times a month for co workers. They are open early and easy to go through the drive through before work. Friendly staff and speedy service. And best of all: delicious breakfast tacos!

Really enjoyed it. A definite place to come back to if we go back to CC again. It's real simple mexican food, nothing fancy. Just good food.
