This is almost like a cafe rio knock off. The burrito was ok and you get a lot of extras included. For what is around this is probably good but not great.

The line was really long and if you've never been there the set up is a bit confusing. The staff was not friendly or helpful in any way.

Melena's was a great find in Ephraim. Similar to Qdoba or Cafe Rio. I really enjoyed the sweet pork burrito with red sauce. They toast the tortillas for a bit before they assemble your meal. Chips and salsa was good too.
