    Well just be careful about how you order. When you ask for something on the side of your meal versus the full price for the item

    Everything. Large portions. All I asked for was the soup and a burrito. I barely touched the burrito.

    Been here twice each time the service was awful! The food is good, but a bit expensive. Skip this place and head across the street to Mauricio's... Not as nice looking but much better
