Tortillas made fresh everyday and generous portions. I did find it a little bland, but the folks with me loved the food that they chose. A fancy fast food place with some homemade specialties.

Given this is a chain it's descent food. Not top notch as you create the add on's to your own dish. So it's as good as your make it. It's consistently descent for a quick bite to eat.

Be prepared, food is made to order so the line may move slower than a typical take out. I absolutely love their chili beef tacos. Really delicious. I also love cilantro on my tacos which they have. HOWEVER, someone should clue them in that the...More
