Stopped by for dinner, this is our go to place, for 2 original MONSTER burritos. Very large and very good. Do not be deterred that it is located in a gas station. Some of the best Mexican food in town. Service is very friendly and you get your food rapidly.

Very small add-on to the gas station (only a couple tables). Service was great & place fairly clean. Food was great just like their other locations. Love the Monster breakfast burritos, they are big enough to share. This location has a small drive-thru.

Best Mexican food in town. Great counter service, large portions for the cost (great value for the dollar), but I can't say enough about the food. 5 Stars *****

Been here several times and agree with most reviewers, the food is really good but the servers are not friendly or helpful. If the owner taught the crew how to greet and suggest items, this place would be so much more fun! Order your food to go and it's all good.

I have been here many, many times, with the most recent visit in October 2014. It is a small place located within the convenience store of a Shell gas station, but don't be fooled. The food is excellent. My own personal favorite is their chile verde burrito, but I have had a wide variety of their dishes and have liked... More

I'm Always leery When It Comes To gas Station Food Places But I Was Pleasantly Surprised By This Place. Great Food! Chili Verde Is INCREDIBLE!

Delicious and fresh. I love their grilled fish tacos. Good salsa as well. Their guacamole isn't anything to write home about, but everything else is great.

This has happened to me twice. I go to Los Primos on Taco Tuesdays, because they have excellent food. The last two times they have over charged me and then acted like it was my fault I made them give me a refund. The first time they didn't even give me the whole refund - the only shortened me a...

They are located on the side of a gas station, convenient. The proce of the food was good, very cheap and tasted fine. The customer service was horrible and I will not be going back!
