 Favorite place in Menifee

This is my favorite place in Menifee.  I enjoy the food and the service.  I ordered from DoorDash and the order was wrong.  I called and they immediately sent me a complete new order.  If you haven’t tried their Chili Colorado it is delicious.  My husband and I go in at least once a week.

“Speechless”

Been here a couple of times & gonna keep on coming. Just had the burritos so far, or should I say Brontosaurus Burritos, and they are Awesome. They are Super Huge and taste Delicious. I have learned to split my burrito cause I just can’t finish it.

The Breakfast Burritos are so warm and filling. Got a Ham & Egg Burrito w/ Potatoes and cheese. Soooo Good! Can’t wait to try more food here. I’m Definitely gonna have to start going back to the gym now.
