Went there after looking up recommended Mex-food restaurants in Pattaya. Had the East LA Burrito and a frozen Margharita. Thumbs up to both. I left very satisfied.

Not eaten here before but if you want to start or continue a great night out this is perfect. On the beach road side of Soi 7 there are a few loud bars around that help keep the atmosphere going without being pestered. The margaritas...More

It's slow season in Pattaya especially in our particular location. Burritos are not microwaved they are just simple to make with the ingredients quite interchangeable. Thank you for your honest report as we are always striving to improve.

As a regular customer for their angeles city branch I just had to try out their pattaya branch. I found the atmosphere very different and the food quality was nice. The service was a little bit slow but still a nice experience

We have more nostalgia in our Thailand operation and we are glad you enjoyed the food quality. Sorry about the slow service and that is improving daily. We appreciate your honest feedback.

Tried the crash & burn burrito again this time was very good again as it was in the past. Of course the Margaritas are the best. Stay consistent and I will be back.
