We found the food similar to Chipotle and about as good, that is, just acceptable. The buffet offerings were attractive, but flavors were not interesting.

The fish tacos were very good for this area. The process of ordering was a little complicated, but the food was good!

This place is great! From the friendly smile you get when you walk in, To the food when it gets brought to your table. A completely "Fresh" take on the typical burrito restaurant. This place uses all fresh ingredients and even gives you multiple choices in Tortillas.Their huge menu will keep you coming back to try everything!

Was not impressed by the menu, it was different than what you typically see on a Mexican menu. Don't remember what I ordered was called, but I did not enjoy it.

I heard good things about the fish tacos and was eager to give the place a try. While the food was good, the dining process is a bit confusing.

You order at the front counter. There is a menu board above the food prep area. I am not sure if this is standard procedure, but some of our food was assembled to order, like at a Chipoltle or Subway, as we moved down the counter. Other parts of our order were cooked in the back. There was clearly some confusion between prep and wait staff during our visit, but that could have been just a bad night.

You picked your table in the dining area. It's a very casual, almost diner-like atmosphere. Nothing fancy here. Our food arrived at odd intervals, not all at one time.

Anyone with any experience in laying out a work area, or who's watched an episode of Restaurant Impossible, knows that it's important to have a good layout to your kitchen. Jojutlas' is just crazy. The beverage dispenser (operated by the wait staff ... not self serve) is along the wall next to where you line up to place your order. So the wait staff is constantly threading their way between customers in line, filling drinks and carrying them back to the dining area.

The cooking area is at the far back wall of the store, so the wait staff has to some traveling between the cooking area, food prep/area and dining area. The logistics are terrible.

Chips and salsa are a critical item in any Mexican restaurant. Their chips are commercial style but tasty. Salsa was good but nothing special. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The bottom line is that we probably won't go back. The dining concept is something between a cafeteria (Chipoltle) and sit-down restaurant. We left still confused about how you're supposed to order and eat there.
