Apparently they have started using the cheap white cheese in their food. I always order the chicken quesadilla with a side of beans. The beans used to be wonderful but now are blah at best and the quesadilla was very disappointing this go round. I cannot stand the white cheese taste so imagine my surprise from several months ago to... More

A friend of mine from California told me about the Purple Burrito and how it reminded her of the Mom and Pop Mexican restaurants back home. We've been there twice now and will return when we're in town. As others have posted-this is a self service eatery. You order at the counter and they will call for you when it's... More

A great place for a fast Mexican style lunch or dinner. The food and prices are very reasonable. Burritos,tacos,enchiladas and ensaladas are their specialities

Biggest problem here was the buildup and then the subsequent let down. Heard such good things only to be under-amazed......... had the namesake Purple Burrito which I highly DON'T recommend.

Good Quick Mexican Food with little time taken. Friendly staff, mostly self service for patrons. Pretty wide menu for a fast food place. Good selection of salsa too. I would suggest an earlier open time for the breakfast burrito and taco sales. (9:00 or 10:00 AM is kind of late)

I stopped in and got a California burrito, it came with chips, I also got the $1.50 churro which was amazing, this is a great stop, nice and quite and a huge amount of food for the price. I have stopped here twice now and both times couldn't eat all of the food they give you. The decor is plywood... More

We were ordering food for our kids and when he rang up the order it was a lot more than what was posted on menu board. When we asked him why it wasn't that price he said menu board is wrong. Pretty frustrating you think your paying one price and its actually a lot more. Just fix the prices so... More

I got the fish taco and the carne asada taco. Both were good but the fish taco was my favorite. it was delicious. I can't wait to go back and get another... More

Delicious, had the purple burrito, el pastor taco, lengue taco, and carnitas chimichanga. Way better and more authentic than I was expecting. Tacos are ala carte and simple, offer menudo, lengue, horchata etc. If I lived here this would be a regular stop.
