Just curious if anyone has been to this chain. :-)

    Never heard of it. Where do they operate?

      Started in Seattle 20 years ago, and they're all over the place now. Not sure when they expanded beyond the Pac NW.

      Not bad for a gut bomb burrito, but at least around Seattle, quality can vary WILDLY between stores.

      Been to them several time at different locations and have never noticed any inconsistency. They offer Baja/California style mexican food, something like Chipotles. Their food is pretty decent for a fast food style operation just don’t expect real style mexican.

        It's sorta like Taco Bell but I think much, much better. Kind of a Tex/Cali/Mex place.

        One thing about them, they make a surprisingly good cheeseburger.

          I should make one thing clear. I misread the title of this thread. I was thinking Del Taco.

          Sorry for any inconvenience.

          The one in Phoenix is downright awful.
