The burritos here are amazing! I came all the way from Wisconsin to try them and I was not disappointed! I had a burrito (I think it was surf and turf or something similar?) It had steak, shrimp, AND FRENCH FRIES inside! It was delicious and their sides are good too! Get the corn! The girl at the register had... More

Went here for dinner and was so impressed. Delicious surf & turf burrito -- big enough for two meals. Excellent value. We arrived on a Wednesday around 6 p.m. -- short wait and there were several tables. (We sat near the gold championship table.) We would've gone back if we could have.

It is worth the wait but way better to call ahead. We made the mistake of waiting over 45 minutes. The california surf burrito and plabano burrito were both yummy. I love the French fries inside. The side sauces add some flavor and kick.

I visited after looking up a good Mexican restaurant. Definitely the reviews were right. We had to wait for about 25 mins, but as soon as we ordered the food came out in less than 10 mins. If you want to eat good and at a good price, you should come to this place.

Well this is always on my go to list when I'm in the area. I tried the other location last time and was not very happy. But came back to the original today and got the Surf n Turf burrito that I know and love. Everything was perfect today even the little wait in line.

We came here for dinner on a Friday evening for dinner. When we arrived there was about 4 people in front of us. By the time we ordered the line was pretty long. Fast and friendly service. Great low budget taco selection. Vegetarian options. Fantastic TJ corn. Sweet decor and fabulous salsa and sauce selection.

This place used to be really good, but I feel that the quality has declined in the past year or so. The burritos used to be nice and full and now they remind me of loose sock. They also took the carne asada burrito off the menu. It is still available on request but the menu offers a rice and... More

It's not just that they outfitted the place with Mexican wrestling kitsch; it's that they just seem to have a boatload of fun coming up with their food and making the whole experience entertaining. But to begin with the basics, the food is excellent - inventive, flavorful and very reasonably priced. You line up to order at the counter in... More
