The restaurant is open and airy. It's clean and the staff is nice. I ordered the veggie taco and was surprised to see the veggies were diced so small I couldn't tell what kind of veggies were on the tortilla. I left hungry which is not a good thing.

This is very clean and modern place to eat. The food was very good and it compares to Moe's Southwest Grill. Staff was very nice and had my order in about 5 minutes.

I ordered a taco salad to go, and while the salad stuff in the shell was OK, the shell was so stale or poorly cooked that it was uneatable. If I hadn't already been so far away, I would have taken the whole thing back.

Stopped in for lunch while downtown for business. Very similar concept to Chipotle by ordering and sliding down to the other stations for extras. Staff was nice, price was right.

Food is pretty fresh, this place is similar in service to a Chipotle, Moe's or Qdoba. The flavor and quality is just not as good as those other chains though. Salsa is behind the counter, not help yourself. Price is reasonable, portions large for most items. It was not as busy as one might expect for a weekday lunch.

Needed a quick lunch. Had the chicken burrito bowl. Ingredients seemed fresh and were flavorful. They give you a huge amount. I could not finish it. If you need a Mexican food fix, give this place a try!

No doubt it beats subway or the BK Lounge. This place offers made-to-order Americanized burritos,and other similar fare. Ingredients were simple and apparently fresh. Service was fast. But for food like this, I find qdoba or blue water taco to be much much more tasty.

When I don't pack my lunch I love to eat here. It can be tough to find if you aren't a part of the uptown work masses. It's in overstreet mall near Chick-fil-a. Food is fresh and fast and service is good. I like the two taco combo for the best deal. Get a sweet tea with lots of lime!

I loved the burrito here, you can make your own burrito with the stuffs you want. You know better than anyone what you want on your food. You can try all the combinations...
