The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.

Forget this is a chain. Forget this a TexMex place. Forget this is a fast food place. Think marinated rotisserie chicken. Are you thinking of it? OK. Good.
Now, think of a buff chicken of tender years enjoying a satisfying, fulfilled life and yearning to sacrifice itself for the betterment of mankind. Imagine the young martyr citrus-marinated until it is swimming in bone-melting goodness, impaled on a spit and spinning like Beethoven until it is golden brown on the outside, but still moist and tender and devastatingly succulent on the inside. Then place it alongside greens and rice and borracho beans so tasty they are worthy of being the main course. Take a warm flour tortilla made right there on the little machine you can see through the window and spread it open. Down the middle spoon a line of pico del gallo over a thick line of salsa fuego (the black hot sauce) and top it with a row of jalapeño slices. Roll it up and you’re ready for thirty minutes of conversation-stopping pleasure.
The rest of the menu? I have no idea. You’ll have to ask somebody else. I’ve been eating at this San Antonio-based fast food chain for 20 years and I’ve never ordered anything else.
