Seeing the lines, I had such high hopes for this place, but I gotta say, I have no idea what people are talking about. The burritos are FAR from “huge.” Go to Chipotle, Benny’s, Blockheads… Those are huge. These are more… what’s the word? Diminutive. So much so that when I brought it back to the office, a guy I work with commented on how surprisingly small it was- so it’s not just me bitching.

And as for flavor- “crack sauce?” Implying something is so good it’s as addictive as crack? Sorry, but they must’ve forgotten to put it on mine, because it was flavorless. I wound up drowning the thing in hot sauce just to make it worth eating. If you want a truly addictive burrito experience try Tres Carnes.

But whatever you do, please don’t waste your time standing on line, only to then wait around another 15 minutes for your mediocre order to be made. There’s a Chipotle just down the street and it’s bigger, faster and better.
