Two words describe The Whole Enchilada “Mmm Good!” It’s a small quaint Mexican grill; 9 tables inside and 4 outside. Today my wife and I ate lunch here and as you enter the restaurant you’re greeted with a hand written “Today’s Special”. The special today was the Black Panther Burrito served with chips and a drink for under $8. This over stuffed burrito was filled with grilled chicken, cabbage, Mexican rice, chipotle and some other stuff that I don’t remember, but it was very tasty. The cabbage added a nice crunch while the chipotle added a little smoky heat; but not spicy hot. I paired it their mango salsa; which contrasted nicely with being cold and sweet.

My wife enjoyed a steak and chicken flour taco with chips. She ordered her steak well done and it was cooked perfectly. The lettuce, cheese, & cilantro made her tacos light, but filling. It did not include a drink but was under $7.

The Whole Enchilada also has a small salsa bar with fresh made chunky, cold, and tasty salsas. The Verde salsa is packed with green goodness and the cilantro really adds that extra kick of freshness. Also available are their mango, traditional, smooth pico and roasted tomato salsa; all worth trying.

Their service is very friendly and fast. They ask you to take a seat and when you order is ready, they’ll bring it to you. Something you would think that wouldn’t happen in a fast food setting, but The Whole Enchilada is something else; “Fast Casual”.

Convert an old gas station and throw in some delicious Mexican food and you have The Whole Enchilada. I went with the lunch special, not the Ex-Wife challenge, and it was one of the better monster burritos that I’ve ever tasted. The salsa bar was stocked with several types of fresh salsa, from smokey to Verde it was there. And the had a Coke Freestyle machine, a rarity for non-chain restaurant. Don’t pass this place up!
