I cannot recommend this place and it is not because of the food but because of the disgusting treatment by one female staff member. The food was not exceptional but decent for the price range, the cocktails according to members in my group were so so. The place itself is open and airy with huge garage door style windows that...

A converted gas station now serving solid burritos, tacos and salads. Not a lot of parking, order at the bar and they bring your food, quick service, nice salsa bar and worth the visit.

Shared a burrito with a friend and it was okay. Average burrito, average price. You order and pay at the counter. They have a salsa bar which was fun to try but I didn't try anything amazing. There is outdoor seating but it is near the road. Good for take away.

First, I would have given them 4-stars, except for they have their music playing so loud that the order taker couldn't hear our order and we had to raise our voices, just trying to talk to each other, while sitting next to each other. We both had headaches by the time that we finished eating. As for the rest, the... More

Great little place located in front of the Parker Playhouse to get a bite before the concert. The place is not large but they do have outdoor seating. The place used to be a gas station that has been converted. The food is ordered at the counter & delivered to your table. We ordered the Mahi Mahi burrito that was... More

Good value particularly the daily specials. You order at the counter and they bring your meal to your table. Good selection of salsas and they have unique self service soft drinks dispenser that has maybe more than 20 selections with free re-fills. They also have outdoor shaded eating.

Hasselhoff charbroiled baskets! They come two tacos, enough for two people if not too hungry. Make sure to ask for sour cream and add the mango salsa, sooo delicious! The Guacamole with chips is always perfect! Also try the salsa verde!

I eat here every time I come back home. The staff and customer service is outstanding. The food is fresh and plentiful. If you are going to Parker Playhouse or war memorial stop by here. An old gas station refurbished and never a disappointment.

Great food, service, staff and prices. Will definitely be coming again next time we visit Florida. Scrumptious.
