The Place to Go

This is the place to go if you want an incredibly good quality but well-priced mexican food. The people are very nice and are willing to build your burrito or Quesadilla to the perfect specifications. The food is amazing for the price, I would pay 10 dollars for a burrito, although it is only 6. If you want a place where you get awesome mexican food for a modest price, go to El Fuego.

mean people

Went there three times cuz it is Mexican and in the neighborhood of my job. After three times, no more. The people behind the counter clearly hate there job and are way rude. Woman behind me asked for Guac and the woman behinsd the counter rolled her eyes and pointed down. I guess she was saying they were out of it and it was too much for her to saay sorry we are out of it. also, they three the tacos together in... view more

Not so nice.

Very low quality meat served at this joint, as well as rude service, perhaps the owner is all about himself and not about satisfying the customer. Servers should be trained to be professional, serve with a smile and lose the attitude. The prices are high for the food quality and service. Tip-be careful about ordering guacamole on anything, it's about $3.00 extra and they do not tell you that!

My new favorite place....

I found this place walking up Chestnut Street about 3 weeks ago and have been there about 5 times already. The atmosphere is super cool and the staff is awesome nice. My husband and I really enjoyed the tasty quesidillas while listening to ""The Roots"". It was seriously the coolest place and can make the perfect cheap date. Apparently they have other locations but the one I visit is between 21st and 22nd Chestnu... view more

Great food at affordable prices

I was recently found this spot while on vacation in Philly. The food and the service were great. The burritos were delicious and the music and atmosphere were great. The staff could not have been nicer, especially Pete, who was adorable and very friendly.

cool atmosphere, tasty burritos, nice staff

I was very surprised to hear previous reviews bad mouth this dimly lit little house of heavenly tastes. I've been going there for 3 years now and have never found the staff to be rude or unlikeable. I play soccer with the manager, who's moving on to the new place in the Rittenhouse area and is really excited about how cool it should be. The other guys are always good for a nice hello, some bantering, or chit-chat ... view more

Fat Guy with Glasses Ruined it for Me

MediaSavant couldn't be more RIGHT!!!\r \r I liked the chorizo quesadilla's, but every time I went there, usually after work at night, the fat guy with glasses would GAWK at my chest. It would've been uncomfortable had he not been such a lump of a guy. He could only wish to get his paws on these puppies. But without fail, while ringing me up, his eyes would be fixed on my chest. A few times I dined in and would cat... view more

Decent Food Served by Jerks

The burritos are OK. A cut above Qdoba but not far. Nice, pretentious ambience, complete with table candles in case you wanted to take a date there. Problem is the staff are all meatheads, especially Pete, the Long Island-born chatterbox who is either always checking his e-mail on his iTouch or bad mouthing customers at a volume they can hear. (If your girl is remotely hot, guaranteed Pete will give her a once or twi... view more
