Quality products we use that make our food better:

  • California fresh packed tomatoes for our salsa. They are Calcium Chloride free, all natural, steam peeled (not lye peeled), and pouch packed so there is no tin flavor and a 1/6 of the waste.
  • Harvestland® Chicken Tenders & Breast
  • Alaskan, line-caught & chemical free, Cod.
  • Pulled Pork is hickory and applewood smoked with only 1 ingredient, salt. (Nitrate Free)
  • Non-GMO & Non-Trans Fat cooking oil
  • Ben’s® Original brown rice, a #1 grade premium brand.
  • Triple washed Black and Pinto Beans to guarantee removal of all rocks and dirt. Most restaurants buy beans by the price, our beans, because of the triple washing, are a higher quality and cost.
  • We use a tapioca thickener for most of our house made sauces, which makes them Gluten Friendly and Paleo friendly!
  • We also use only a gluten-free, veggie base, allowing us to keep all of our soups, sauces, rice, and beans vegetarian friendly.
  • Our Tempura batter and crumbs have been the same brand since day one, containing no egg or dairy so we can serve our famous hand breaded Chicken Fingers to children and adults with allergies.
  • Don Poncho® Tortillas keeps the quality high because of it’s small batch production. Don Poncho is not used by most restaurants because of it’s higher cost.
  • Mae Ploy™ Thai Chili sauce is the highest quality from Thailand (also, it’s gluten-free).
  • Hershey® Simple 5 Chocolate Syrup; only 5 ingredients, nothing artificial, and NO High Fructose Corn Syrup.
  • Smoothie Fruit: Fresh Bananas. All other fruit is domestic Dole® Individually Quick Frozen - frozen within hours of harvest retaining 100% of the products’ vitamins & antioxidant properties. (No added sugar)
