We got take out there today because of the rave reviews. Honestly we were not impressed. The food was dry and flavorless. I will not be back. On the plus side portions were large.

I love the carne asada burrito wrap! Excellent hand made chips! Very friendly, and hard working people! Waiting to get it home to eat is almost like torture. I have to admit I've tried to eat it while driving home a few times because I couldn't wait. Keep up the great work.

Not good customer service

The girl working there is pushy and no customer service skills. Not impressed at all. And told me I had to wait outside for my food. Even though there were people waiting for their food. Nasty attitude. And was told I had a wait time. Where other people got their food right away.

Poor customer service

This woman that works here is awful. Very rude and short with people. Very terrible customer service. I tried to post a review before but it didn’t make it to the website. Awful business. Deserves a zero star.
