For junk food, its not bad

This place is fast junk food so you cant really expect much. I did enjoy the street tacos & epic burrito. It was better than Taco bell in my opinion. If you want authentic Mexican food, go to a Taco truck or Mexican restaurant. If you want something quick & easy with a drive thru, then this place is pretty good. They are open 24 hours, so definitely a good option for late night munchies.
