Quick stop for lunch. Super burrito was very well done, served with chips and salsa. The restaurant is basic but fair enough at these prices. Service was helpful and friendly. Overall good.

Very rude staff and bad service, waited too long although not very crowded. Dirty, will never come back.

Visited several times and getting better. Noticed the ingredients to be even fresher and great salsas. Free chips and salsa with every meal. Kids had burritos and shared the fajita plate with my wife. Like that you can order at the counter and seat yourself.
