I like to try a lot so I ordered the chicken taco with cheese skirt. I swear the cheese skirt looks like the tortilla. It was good... but I really felt like I was going to have a heart attack then and there. I also tried the veggie cheese burger... Massive heart attack. It's tons of cheese... I bet it's over 1500 calories. That was my meal for the day. I'm only allowed 1500 calories a day. I did not finish it all thank goodness. Ordered the fries... they were steak fries... it was alright. I prefer skinny fries. SERVICE: They were fine. Standard. NOTE: * Gets busy at lunch time - NO seats at noon. I got there at 11am. * This will make you feel FAT. * You will be FAT. * Over 1500 calories I bet.
