If you love grilled chicken on charcoal this is your place, they use a well kept secret to spice each peace of chicken with Mesquite flavor! This Mexican fast food has moved to El Paso and offers great tasty Combos that includes corn tortillas, red onions and great salsas! The grilled Master Xavier knows his grilling! Try the Hawaiian double... More

Called for 5 minutes, call kept going to voicemail. You would think I would learn my lesson then. Nope, got my order through. Told it would take 30-40 minutes to deliver. An hour later, I called again for 3 minutes trying to get through. Finally they tell me she in on the way about 10 minutes ago. Proceeds to hang... More

This establishment has the best grilled chicken I know of. They throw whole split chicken onto a mesquite-fired super-hot grill for some smoky, juicy goodness. Just the aroma coming off of the mesquite grill is enough to awaken your hunger! The sides are OK and i recommend baked potato or Charro Beans.

Good home style chicken. Bake potato is not bad as well. Eaten here a few times now and everything is good.

This incredibly clean, modern-styled restaurant has more than its mesquite-grilled chicken; for instance, I've heard their burgers & fajitas are great. I just can't imagine not eating the chicken once I'm there! We usually order the whole cut-up chicken; we don't order sides because that's not our style. Square, delicious corn tortillas come with it along with grilled whole jalepenos,... More

Got the 3 piece with 2 sides. Fries were crispy, macaroni salad was killer. Comes with a side of square tortillas, salsas and onions. The taco sauce was spicy if you decide to make the tacos out of it. Restaurant was clean and service was good. Will return.
