Mountain Burrito appears to be just another strip mall shop, but don't be fooled. The selection of Burrito ingredients, spices, toppings, make everything they make special. We have never had anything but friendly, efficient service..........and a Burrito to die for.

This place is sort of like a Moe's, but they have no shredded cheese at all and can't even make a quesadilla. Almost 12$ for lunch of a fountain drink and steak burrito. I will not go back.

We stopped here on the way home from a conference, and we do not regret our choice! The place is small and you could tell it's a favorite with high schoolers before their big game, but it's cute and offered outside seating. We could have definitely shared our nachos in hindsight, but my husband appreciated the leftovers, so it worked... More

I hate to pan any local restaurant but I've given this place a couple tries and it's just so-so. The beef is tough and not well trimmed. The price is a bit high for the quality of the food. The atmosphere is below average and the proximity to the chicken plant and its sometimes questionable odors makes sitting outside to... More

This place is so great. It's small and quaint and VERY easy to miss. The ingredients are fresh and this is not a chain! I actually think it is run mostly by family. They also serve great craft beers from local distillers.

Few seats but have never had a problem. Most people take out. They do have outside eating. Daily specials. Very friendly servers. Best of all - food is excellent.... More

A great place to get a meal that you custom design. The portions are outstanding and there is usually a line that moves quickly. You will be full when you leave.
