I have tried this fast food restaurant several times.The food is inconsistent. Once the chicken salad was wonderful, and another time it was soggy, and the chicken tasted like it was out of a can.

This restaurant used to be a great place to eat. The owner made his daughter the manager and she was in experience running a restaurant. Price's went up portions got smaller and wait time went through the roof. Very sad.

From the exterior appearance, you'd never know this place has high quality, excellent fast food. We've been eating here since it opened, always ordering the Mahi-Mahi Burritos so our review is limited to this item. This is the best burrito we've had anywhere. Fish is generally a bit charred from the grill which gives it a great flavor. Beans and... More

I have not had a bad experience or food here. The chicken soft taco with rice and beans is very good and always tastes fresh and is served hot. Great, friendly service

Ok for a quick fix of Mexican. Cheap eats for sure but good quality. We run in whenever we want all beef tacos. Right of Hwy 20. Easy access in and out. Sometimes the drive through is out of order SO just to make sure take the time and go in! (Sat in line for 15minutes once not realizing it... More

Great shredded beef tacos and very fair price. Limited menu, but they do each item to order and consistently do a great meal. The thing that makes it a good value is they give you chips and a homemade salsa with each order. The taquitos (3) are really good and are served with sour cream and another type of salsa.... More

Burritos are great,and i must say that the beans here are pretty tasty. They have pinto and black beans to choose from, i like the combo of both. Unfortunately, when i drove away from the drive thru, i was sent away sans napkins or a utensil. Total bummer as i was in the car for another 30 minutes after that.

I love that you get chips and salsa with everything you order. I think their tacos could have more seasoning, they're sort of bland but for the price, it's good food.

She made an excellent half sheetcake for my stepfather's birthday party. It was carrot cake with raisins and crushed pineapple, and had orange cream cheese icing. So delicious! Only crumbs were left.

Tri Tip filling was cut into tiny chips. Expected Asada for authenic flavor. Was virtually tasteless. Beans were soggy along with the runny sour cream inside. Menu stated it came with lettus and olives and rice?? Salsa and chips were also not appealing. Very bland. Not appetizing at all. Cold and drafty. Staff ignored us completely after we seated ourselves... More
