Ok, I totally don't agree that the food here is overpriced. The burritos here are the size of a small child! I always order off the kids menu -- they are always really friendly about it and will make pretty much whatever you want in a smaller size.

That said, the food here isn't terrific. But if you're willing to share with a friend, it's a good fast spot.

Their shrimp enchiladas were okay, but their carnitas taco salad was better. We had a $25 gift certificate the time we ate here, but their food is overpriced for its quality. There are many better and cheaper Mexican restaurants around, so chances are we won't be eating here again.

Shrimp enchiladas: okay, I guess...nothing spectacular.

Carnitas taco salad: better than the shrimp enchiladas.

I don't think I'd eat here again...their food and ambiance just did not impress me. It's like a bar/mexican hole-in-the-wall restaurant/jukebox/pool table hybrid kind of place...I think it has an identity problem. :)

Pros: I had a $25 Gift Certificate...that's why I ate here.

Cons: Overpriced!

El Balazo has great burritos and gives you a choice of black or refried beans. They also have a couple different types of rice, including saffron. The service is very quick for the volume and the establishment is clean. Unfortunately, I think it is overpriced. I paid over $7.00 for a bean and cheese burrito.

Is it a night club? A museum with cultural artifacts displayed on the walls? A haunted house? A generic mexican food restaurant that isn't very good?

If you chose "all of the above" you are correct. It is right next to burger king, and on my next visit, I would opt for the burger king.

Pros: it is close to my work

Cons: the food is gross
