Chorizo Green Chili breakfast burrito overstuffed and very good. Service fast and good. Knowing when to get there determines how long you stand in line.

Great foot. The menu has enchiladas, chimichangas, tamales, taco burgers, stuffed sopapillas, indian tacos, and more. Everything was very fresh and they have a cute patio you can eat on. You have to go inside the building to order, even though it looks like it...More

Awesome and fast, even if you customize your order. Great red and Green chili. Breakfast burritos are really good and big. The chicken burrito at lunch is huge, healthy and tasty. Classic short order cooks, could be on Saturday night live.

Has some of the best breakfast burritos on town. I prefer the red chile more than the green. Service is quick and efficient!

Sure, at first glance this place seems a little run down. It doesn't have fancy, modern signage or vibrant paint on the outside. No, most people who visit this restaurant aren't staying to have a sit-down breakfast or lunch (therefore there is no indoor seating...there...More
