30 minute wait for average Mexican food - vegetarian burrito is basically rice with a few beans thrown in. I can imagine it's the kind of food you'd want after a few beers on Courtney place though...

Naked burrito ( salad) ... 'not too spicy please' says I. In no time at all a flavour filled, freshly delicious, crunch tasty dinner. All sauces made in house. 'I've used Princess Sauce' says the Taco Queen. She is a magician?
