This is without a doubt THE WORST Mexican Food I have ever been served. I felt I had to write this review to warn people about this food. They claim to serve CHICKEN Tamales, However, when the tamales arrived, they were obviously PORK. I don't eat PORK and neither does my husband. When we brought this to the employees attention, he denied the filling was PORK and INSISTED it was CHICKEN and refused to remake the order or compensate us in ANY way. The Fish Tacos were also terrible, a limp, mushy mess and EVERYTHING was so salty it was unpleasant to even TRY to eat it. If you enjoy good Mexican Food, PLEASE DO NOT EAT HERE. It really is completely DREADFUL.

These guys ahve been turing out good food for years and out survived some others during the down years. Great food ordered and cooked in the Chipotle style. Burritos are excellent and you get free chips and salsa. Great for families or business lunch

Ok, so this isn't going to be for those people who are looking for truly authentic mexican food. However, it is pretty close and the quality/flavor are outstanding. It's a local place (one other location) and the secret is getting out as you'll find it pretty packed during lunch or dinner. It's served quickly (think Chipotle style) but with a lot more choices than your usual quick serve place. Try the carne asada with anything or go for my favorite which is the cracked pepper chicken chimi's with a spicy ranch sauce. Oh, don't forget free chips y salsa. That's a must for any respectable mexican place.

Lots of problems at this restaurant. The employees behind the counter either don't speak English or don't listen very well. When we pointed out the mistakes on our order they were very rude and still put tartar sauce on a fish taco that was ordered without it.

The carnitas, chile verde, rice and beans all were bland and tasteless. The fish in the taco was almost more batter than fish. Most of their sauces and salsas are thin and watery and don't have good flavor.

About the only thing good was the beer which was cold. We will not return

The grilled chicken is delicious and the roasted tomato salsa is divine! Big enough portions to share as far as the burritos go!
