  1. Tried the Chipotle crispy chicken griller. Just meat, sauce, and tortilla. Pretty good though, the chicken wasn’t greasy and had a satisfying crunch.

  2. The Mango BBQ was a big let down. I could hardly tell the difference between it and regular sauce. The jalepeno honey was really good, but I think it would taste better on the new breakfast biscuit than with a tortilla.

  3. It wasn’t bad, but it won’t be a repurchase for me. I didn’t like the breaded chicken. The tortilla to me acts as a sort of breading for the item as a whole, so the tortilla over the breaded chicken is overkill.

  4. I tried the Chipotle Griller today. I thought it was horrible, I didn’t even finish half of it. There wasn’t near enough sauce so it was very dry.

  5. Stopped by and got the jalepeno honey chickstar and it was awesome. Wish I knew brand of sauce. Went to a hot sauce store and bought something hopefully near the flavor. Really good. Will be eating it again. Loved it!

  6. I just had the mango bbq crispy chicken griller and I thought it was pretty good. I love the breaded chicken. I had the chicken biscuit taco earlier this week and I didn’t love the biscuit…tasted kind of like a gordita which is probably all it is, only not grill pressed.
