I went here with my wife. We were surprised at the the amount of good food for such a good price. The Wraps were much larger and better than we expected. The hamburger and fries were also very good and larger than I expected for the very reasonable price.

We grabbed this local fare with the local school kids that filled up the entire restaurant. Think McDonald's to compare. The food was subpar in my opinion.

Centrally located and with a solid menu of North American inspired fast food, this place is great if you need to fill up quickly and you're on a tight budget. It certainly is not fine dining, but where else can you get a quarter pound cheeseburger with wondeerfully crispy fries and a drink for 5 or 6 dollars?? The service... More

We found this place because the intended location was closed - la parrila de Maria. My girlfriend loved her grilled chicken with fries. My sandwich was very good as well. As it turned out la parilla was not good. This place was much better. Thats what I love about travelling...finding that hole in the wall or mom and pop place... More

Loved the CR tacos. They aren't what you picture as a taco. They are more like large taquitos covered with shredded cabbage and a drizzle of mayo and what passes for ketchup there. So delicious! The kids enjoyed the burgers and fries and the prices were decent too.

The cashier shorted my change by 1 mil col, and when I asked her about it she feigned ignorance. Alright, whatever I thought, not a big deal. She then brought my order and gave me fries instead of jalapeño poppers like I had asked and paid for (why are all the menu items in English if none of the employees... More

Went to eat there two times this week. The food was good. My husband had wraps one day and supreme fries another. He enjoyed them. I had nachos and they were nice and switched out the beef for chicken. Much cheaper to eat there than any other place as long as you don't go overboard on ordering one of everything!... More

This is more of a burger joint but we did get some chicken wraps which were very good. I would agree it is some greasy food but not overpriced. I think it was about $2 for a wrap which is cheap. Overall a good choice for a quick bite.
