We tried to get into a sit-down restaurant in town, but the wait was too long for us. We decided to try this place and we weren’t disappointed. Food was tasty and service was good. Very clean and value priced. Would visit again.

This place is fantastic, kind of set up like Subway where you get to create your own burrito or quesadilla which is really nice. I usually always go for a steak burrito with lettuce and at $7 for a hearty meal, its really good value....More
