My friend got the chicken quesadilla and me the chicken burrito. It was absolutely delicious to both of us. If you are in town and craving Mexican food on a budget, this is a good place to try. Enjoyed it.

We eat here pretty often, we always order the same thing and the staff recognize us and know what we will want before we order. This is a casual place, very quick, and maybe not very healthy, but tastes good.
