They make all of their food fresh and they have a long line of those waiting to order. Their food is great and their staff is very friendly, but it could take up to an hour to get your food but it's worth the wait...More

I really like this Mexican. The carnitas with a slice aof pineapple hits the spot every time. They have a great salsa that's is not too spicy, and the elote (corn on the cob) was delicious. Easy, inexpensive and fast.

Fantastic Mexican food for a good price the pork carnitas were fantastic!! Rojo burrito was loaded and not to spicy but there's a great salsa bar if you need more heat. Place was packed but the service was fast.

We put in quite an order for our family, and were really quite pleased with the food and service. I like a bit more cheese than they provided, but the food was hot and fresh! Thank you for a nice family meal!

I took some of my family to this place, and it was really good. I got a chimichanga, which was enormous. Everyone else's portions were also really big, and we enjoyed the food. It's kind of a quick-service set-up, where you order at the counter,...More

I was skeptical the first time I walked into the strip mall and smelled the sour drink machine wafting through the restaurant. But my fears were quickly assuaged when my friend said two words that changed my life, "Ya Bass". I had never heard of...More

The staff was friendly and the service was prompt. The dining area was spotless, the sauce bar was organized, clean, and well-stocked. The food was delicious! We didn't have to wait to be served, and even if we had to, it would have been well...More
