Clean and busy. Order at the counter and you get a buzzer. Find a table and get a fountain drink and the buzzer goes off. Very little wait. Great fish tacos, shrimp tacos, nachos, Cuban sandwiches. Very reasonable prices.

Grabbed a quick lunch for the office and the drive through line was enough to make me bypass this favorite spot but I DIDN'T!!! They are fast and thorough and I LOVE the food.

The food is always so fresh and good. If there is a line, it usually moves pretty quickly. If you like Cuban style food you will not be disappointing. The prices are also reasonable.

Got the nachos to go and was surprised with the quality. Nicely seasoned chicken strips with queso cheese and rotel poured on top. Can't wait to go back and try their "big" burrito. Saw that several people ordered it and it looked delicious.

love all the tacos and the tortilla soup. The only downside is occasionally food can be a little bit cold. This place is so yummy I wish I could open a franchise myself!
