Met a fellow hot head here. The staff were super friendly, the steak burrito was awesome. Was pleased with the large selection of hot sauces, and enjoyed trying he hottest hot sauces that required a waiver. Would highly recommend!

It lies somewhere between Taco Bell and Chipotle’s but sells beer and wine. The ground beef in my quesadillas was burnt and the chips too salty. Waitresses were very nice.
