First of all, the whole "Fresh" branding notion is absurd. I'm sure the veggies are fresh, and i'm sure they don't use MSG (who does anymore???) or "lard" as they state by the ordering counter, but this is all meant to give the impression that the food is healthy, which is a joke. It's greasy mexican, plain and simple. That's not really a complaint, since I wouldn't be so naive as to expect anything different from a fast-food Mexican restaurant. But I still thought it was worth pointing out.
So yeah... it's cheap, but fairly boring. If you're in a rush, go for it. But there's better Mexican to be had. Taco Rico on US 1, for exmaple (they also have a location in SoBe), is great, pseudo-authentic Mexican. Nope, not healthy either, but then again, all they claim to be is "rico" :)
Charbroiled meats and fresh salsas add authentic spice to this Mexicali fast-food chain..
High tables and a busy open kitchen welcome diners into the spacious, brightly lit black-and-white interior. Just minutes after cashiers take customer orders, fresh-made tacos, burritos and enchiladas (stuffed with steak, chicken or seafood) arrive on the nearby counter. The menu also offers several plates of greens, from typical taco salad to fancier bowls with shrimp or mahi mahi. A stainless-steel bar offers several salsas, plus jalapenos, limes and cilantro for seasoning.
