“Interesting!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

As it is hard to find good places to eat in this expensive overprised tourist trap town that are actually open for lunch, this place was sort of a disappointment. The chicken burito that I ordered was huge but was not a big hit. Taco Bell has better flavor than this place. Prices were average for a price gouging tourist blood sucking town!

“Overpriced, average food & weird "restaurant" set-up”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Tiny place located in a strip mall. Placed 3 orders "to go" at the counter & paid the cashier/barmaid/waitress just as you would at a fast-food place. Ordered 3 chicken "wet burritos".

Sat at a tiny table for over 30 minutes while the young woman, apparently the only employee in the place besides the cook, filled & delivered drinks from the bar to other waiting patrons.

We could see our "order up" packaged & sitting atop the counter where the cook places finished orders. The set-up in this place is difficult to describe. Guess you have to be a local to get the attraction.

We tried to be patient since the poor young woman was racing around trying to do several jobs at once. More customers began arriving, more completed orders were sitting waiting, but yet she still continued to give priority to drink orders.

We reached our limit of patience, went back to the order counter & pointed out to her that our order was done. Arrived back at our place to find the burritos very large, but very bland. Prices are steep & wouldn't bother to stop here again.

“Chile Rellenos, yum!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We have only been here once and had the Chile Rellenos stuffed with Mexican cheese, perfectly breaded and fried. Seriously delicious!

“Lamb tacos”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Extremely dry, salty meat. For the price, portions very skimpy. Past meals have been good, but this was terrible.

“Lucky Find”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

Fell into this place on a recommendation from the cashier at Albertsons, of all places. Came in mid afternoon on a Taco Tuesday. Loved loved the carnitas so much we brought the whole gang the next day. Efficiently run, excellent food, clean and fast service. What more could you ask? Oh yes..very reasonably priced in expensive Jackson.
