We end up ordering from this place regularly. The food is delicious—best sweet potatoes ever. Good guacamole and salsa and everything Is fresh. When we get delivery they sometimes miss the salsa, which is disappointing. Really great food for an on-site gathering.

While Chicks N Salsa may look like just another fast food place from the outside, it's food is in a whole other league! My family's favorite is the justly-praised fish tacos, especially with the fried fish. Absolutely delicious!
