Solid mexican fast food. The chilitos make this better than a taco bell. The other food is similar to taco bell.

Our favorite Mexican restaurant, we have tried many different ones,many different price ranges. Zantigo sets the standard for flavor and choices and the price is excellent.

I used to eat at Zantigo several years ago and then they all closed when Taco Bell started to get popular. I am so glad they are back. It is still fast food, but I find the quality much better than Taco Bell. The Taco Burrito is very good, but the best thing on the menu are the Cheese Chilitos.... More

Its OK... typical fast food mexican food. Would not "avoid" going back but certainly would not make it a priority. Service was good and staff responsive and friendly - which is probably the saving grace for this establishment... and somewhat a rarity these days.

We stopped here as we were looking for a Mexican restaurant close to the Interstate as we were traveling through the Cities. We'd never heard of this particular restaurant before and didn't realize it was "fast food" Mexican on par with Chipotle. I'd rather stop at Chipotle next time! The food wasn't horrible but it wasn't amazing either. I ordered... More

The green Chili Burritos are bomb. A great flavor with just the right amount of bite of hotness. The entire menu had good selections too.

The best mexican creation is the cheese chilito with extra chilito sauce We were so happy when zantigos came back from the ashes after being closed when taco bell bought out the franchise way back when. The chips and cheese with extra cheese and the shredded pork taco are awesome. I cant wait until we are in the area again.

One of our favorite stops when we are in Minnesota. Great service, clean restaurant, cheap prices. And the best chlitos ever. Get the chilito meal with a side of chips and cheese and you will be one happy camper.
