We had never been there. Didn’t realize it was a fast food restaurant. They make the shells right in front of you. The food was ok but the rice and beans were not hot. They slap the food in the tin foil pans cafe style.

I love that this restaurant offers to build my meal in front of me with whatever options I choose. There are choices for those who count carbs, fat, or gluten. The food is delicious. They also offer a multitude of beverage options.
