You will be full - ample food. Quick service and good (not great) flavor. Can't ask for much more from a fast food eatery. 4.5 stars

This was our third visit and we went on a Tuesday. Luckily, we went early as it was Taco Tuesday and gets very crowded very fast. The tacos were extremely good. Nice decor and very clean. A really fun place to enjoy a meal.

I love this chain. LOVE. It boggles my mind that there is one of these in Northern Idaho, but not in my home area of Northern California! I ate there every other day. Try the tacos and the Salad. Absolutely incredible. YUM.
