    Overpriced and unseasoned food. The "Unique" soft taco shells are gross.

    VERY OVERRATED! The last couple times I've been here, I was NOT impressed! Neither was the guests I was with. If you want GOOD Mexican, as much as I hate Detoilet, go downtown to Armando's.

    Most places that offer a wet burrito give you a huge over stuffed burrito, but the one here is small and deflated. Guacamole is good though.

    Management just ruined a good birthday party by refusing to honor THEIR foursquare check in coupon. Idiots! Obviously someone in management did it. They even have their entire menu on foursquare too!
