Stopped here for lunch after a long absence and was quickly reminded of the plain and spacious area for seating, Food is ordered and served at the counter and a small serving of stale chips and salsa accompany some of the orders, although you can order fresh chips and salsa and I recommend that you do so if you expect...

I stop here when I want to pick up a burrito. They are generous and the price is right!! I usually just take out. One burrito is enough. Very good!

I am in love with their cinnamon chips. They are AMAZING! The burritos are a foot long and have wonderful taste! The pupusas they make on the weekends are some of the best I have ever had. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area.

At first, I thought it tasted pretty good, but my burrito was so wet and just pouring out liquid, it got kind of gross. Everything for the taco seamed to be straight from the can, and the chips were pretty stale.. It gets 2 stars because the people were nice, and at first it wasn't that bad.

I now live on the other side of Concord, but always crave a Monument Burritto, and a Taco Salad. Oversized tortillas, plenty of wet slimy guac and sour cream, and consistent quality and taste of the rice and beans, make this fast food option a once a month meal for Our family. The pico de gallo salsa is good. Their... More
