    Comfort Food From Wonderful People

    The first time my boyfriend and I ordered from here we walked in & watched them make everything in their open kitchen. They are clean, quick, & precise. I recall them having a machine that presses homemade tortillas which was fun to watch. The man & the woman are both unbelievably nice. They always seem to have a smile. They have a lovely family & spend much of their time there working hard making delicious food. Their tex-mex chili is what I order in almost every dish. The chorizo is good too. I really appreciate that the cheese is always melted instead of being thrown on top like many places I've been to. I find it amusing how neat they are with a food that is typically not very neat at all. I laugh every time I open a container & each topping is occupying it's own square on top of the food instead of it resembling the typical heaping pile of colors & textures. I suppose it's good they do this since some people can be very picky. You have the option to eat everything how you like or, like I do, mush them around until everything becomes one big mixture. Make sure to read the menu closely though. I ordered taquitos thinking there would be a few fried sticks like the ones at 711, all stuffed with said ingredients. Turned out the menu says there are just 2 taquitos & the ingredients (other than the meat) come outside, separated except for the melted cheese on top. That was my fault for not reading correctly or thinking to ask. Anyway, we have ordered from them many times since then. Delivery is very fast, the food is always warm when it gets here & the delivery guy is super friendly & will even joke around with you. The homemade lemonade was interesting since many other places only offer iced tea. It was very good. I've had the Hawaiian wings & the chicken teriyaki as well & both are quite good. Nothing is exactly exceptional so far but they are so consistent, mindful (the woman reads the corresponding number after you order by name just to double check, which is great), and overall good that when it comes to "fast food", it couldn't get much better. I hope they stay in business for a very long time. There aren't any places I can think of that could even replace them. I swear, go in for yourself one day & watch them, from placing the order to cooking the food, & you will love them so much you will want to give them your money.

    You Are So Nice!

    So me and my boyfriend order from here a few times a week. It's a huge favorite. From the burgers, to the hawaiian spicy wings (bf's favorite) to my tostada bowls, special combos (w. rice, lettuce tomato, cheese, steak etc) everything is DELICIOUS. Ordered over the phone left me with a huge smile on my face. The person taking my order was very patient, attentative and nice! I was being particularly difficult because I was ordering something new, so it had to be perfect. He made sure of that! And told me I'm nice. I had to return the favor ! :) The delivery man is also very polite and nice. They actually remember their loyal customers and make sure everything is correct for each personal order. I order from a lot of places that seem to forget I order from them multiple times a week and ruin my meals. I would rate 5 on EVERYTHING but I've never been here in person, and sometimes things can be a little stale. But I guess that's what happens at a busy resturant! Anywho, a HUGE favorite for me and my s.o because of service, quality, PRICES, and more. A huge recommend!

    Boring

    Chicken Burrito was made with Dried grilled chicken, burrito was OK, but boring. Did I mention dry. The chicken with rice and black beans were better. The price was fair.

    Tex-Mex Experience

    Their food is delicious. However, I do not like when I order chili nachos or chili fries and the bottom is soggy with grease. Still, it doesn't take away from the flavor or the quality of everything else. They deliver and cook at a rapid pace. I order from here quite often! The Homemade iced tea is yummy! Chili nachos are my favorite!

    Stale Chips

    I order from them a lot. However that last few times I ordered, my order include "STALE" CHIPS. I called and asked to speak with the manager and got a young lady that was quite rude! Telling me that the manager was not available and did not want to hear anything else and finally hung up the phone on me. As I said starting out, the food is good but many times you get stale chips with your order (which should not happen any time)
