Walk up ordering at its best. The menu is huge and the food is always fresh. The big daddy burrito is a must if you hungry, you wont be disappointed. Fresh margaritas are awesome.

We had the quesadilla and burrito bowl. Both were outstanding. The spicy cabbage on the salsa bar really is spicy and so are the salsas. The house Margarita was good. Not particularly outstanding but not dissimilar to other Mexican restaurants. Pretty straightforward Mexican restaurant that...More
