I like going here because it feels satisfying to help out a local Mexican restaurant that has a slightly more upbeat vibe compared to a Chipotle or Qdoba. Good selection and prices.

Came here with friends after visiting the sculpture park. While they have a few suggestions on the menu for combinations, it's pretty much create your own so it's good for anyone that may have dietary restrictions. Food was good and the workers were awesome and...More

They make a vegetarian ground beef that was very good. They make the concoction themselves in the store. It is spicy. I was at the store while the owner was there so I am not sure if that made a difference. The pricing was good...More

Food is absolutely phenomenal. You can taste the quality of the ingredients. Plus, the prices are great for the quality of the food. I suggest picking up a rice krispie treat, by the way. The are HUGE and taste great!

It's not a bad place to eat, don't get me wrong. I know they tried to make the theme different than all the other burrito places, but still... it's just another burrito place. Nothing special.
