Best Burritos in Town!

For a Saturday night I was thinking we'd have to wait a long time for a table but as we walked in behind the hostess she immediately grabbed menus and sat us! Service was super quick which was good because we were in a hurry, and our server was awesome! We give a super thumbs up to the Chicken and Fish Burritos. HUGE! For $10 we totally had leftovers for later and were completely full when we left.

Best Tex Mex in the Area

Yesterday was my third visit. In general, service is fast, and so far, I've never had to wait for a table even though the place has been fairly crowded. The drink list is big, there's a good selection of beers, wines, tequilas and whiskeys ($4 shots!). A pitcher of Kenzinger is $12.

For apps, the onion rings and fried pickles are delicious, not to mention the endless chips and salsa, which comes with salsa verde and a smokey salsa. The smokey salsa is amazing! Of the entrees, I've had or sampled the fish and chorizo burrito (very good), the taco salad (huge and delicious) and the wagyu sandwhich (amazing and really, really tender). The burritos are actually two tortilla wraps with sides. The Grande burrito however is a traditional (and huge) burrito.

This is definitely the best tex mex place in the area. They actually serve sides with their burritos (not a given unfortunately), their food is delicious and it comes out fast. Service is great and the staff is very attentive.

Terrible service, mediocre food, middling beer, and rather high prices

For appetizers we ordered chicken wings and seitan wings. The chicken's dry rub was good, but the protein itself was cooked to a consistency that one might call ""slimy."" The seitan on the other hand was nicely flavored and crispy. We also had chips and salsa, which any Mexican restaurant should be able to do. It came with 2 salsas: smoked and verde. The verde was an abomination: ground up tomatillos...no salt, no spices. The ""smoked"" one was far from smoked- just chopped tomatoes, onions and a bit of cilantro and salt (essentially a basic pico de gallo found at a condiment bar). I ordered from the ""Texas"" menu with the wagyu beef brisket and ribs with spicy sauce. The sauce was good, and the meat was smoky,moist,and mostly acceptable. The brisket however was very fatty. My boyfriend ordered an $11 barbacoa burrito and upgraded to the plato for an extra $5. When one thinks of a $16 burrito meal you'd imagine a formidably sized mexican wrap with all the fixins. This alleged burrito turned out to be two finger-sized tortillas (slightly larger than a 7-11 taquito) with a tablespoon each of what tasted like dry shredded pemmican meat crammed into only one end of each little tube. There was nothing else in these odd little ""burritos""- quite literally, the only ingredient beside the meat was a flour tortilla. The rice and beans addition to this ""meal"" were mushy, unseasoned, and revolting in appearance, texture and flavor.
That being said, the meat dishes there are passably executed, but the price tag should command a higher level of quality for everything on the plate (and some sides should be included). If you are not a tasteless aging hipster sheep, and must still go to this place for whatever reason, I suggest you order an all-meat item from the Texas side of the menu.
