My chicken burrito was great, and super quick, maybe took 2 min or less. The best "not fast food" ever. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant is lovely decorated.

A fantastic veggie burrito. I think they weigh a pound each?! Filling and delicious and for a good price. One of my favourite stops in town.

Our favourite place in Nelson to go with the whole family for a dinner out. Nice assortment of delicious just like Mexico dishes. Our favourite is the TAco salad and the Burrito,s . friendly staff and nice atmosphere,right downtown, With reasonable prices for a family.

I've been here a few times now and never had a miss on the food. The tortilla soup is phenomenal, and the drinks Really Good and Also Cheap, but the 1lb burrito is the star of the show. Lots of fresh, tasty ingredients, they don't...More

I'd put this place in the same category as Zambrero's, Guzman y Gomez etc (one step above Taco Bell, but still fast food)... And honestly, I prefer their food over El Taco. Nothing wrong with the burrito I had, but nothing particularly good about it...More

We had the chicken burittos, and it had more rice and beans in it than chicken. Didn't seem to have alot of flavour. I've had better.

Been there twice and have been disappointed both times. The food is not very tasty and quite starchy. E.g. the burito filling has a large component of rice. Sorry guys, you need to up your game.

Well run place. It's often pretty busy and they do a good job of moving things along. Portions are good and everything I've ever had tastes good.
