Visited this place for the first time today, and it was okay. I went because I wanted the convenience of a drive thru, but wasn't in the mood for the greasy fast food options around me. Overall, this place is just okay. I might come here again if I'm in the right mood, but I definitely won't seek it out if I'm not already nearby. The food tasted fine, but it was definitely overpriced. I don't mind paying more for good quality food, but I was disappointed in what I got. The taste was pretty bland and the food wasn't hot! As far as the experience goes, the wait was too long for a quick lunch run. I probably waited 15 minutes before I ordered and another 10 to get my food. Also, the menu doesn't give much option for smaller portions. For example, I wanted street corn, but my only option was a "shareable size." I got it anyway, but I would have loved for an option to just add one piece as a side - and the same for queso and guacamole!

Literally bought 1 of each of their breakfast tacos the first time I went. Loved all of 'em. Great place to slide in and get some quick food.

Their food is great but their service is really ... pretentious. I made a comment about the ice cream getting more expensive and this guy has the nerve to say you seem to have a problem with all our prices being too high ... the hell ? If anything most people operating a business would appreciate the feedback. So either he's part owner and pissy about his capacity to raise prices (listen without being a dick) or he's not part owner and should not offend guests. Loved the chicken but now I'm scared of soup-natzi like customer service. The serving sizes of all meals are a joke. Like I get upscale , but I ordered a whole chicken once and it looked like a Cornish game hen it was so small.
