PHX Los Betos, Filibertos, et al. - What's Good, Not?

I just got back from Los Betos. It's a 24-hour, mostly drive thru, Mexican place. This location is at 3001 N Hayden Rd, Scottsdale, AZ (just North of Thomas Rd). I guess there are other locations. I'm thinking there is another at about 32nd St and Greenway in Phoenix.

A couple of years ago, a former neighbor of mine suggested I get the ham with eggs, and cheese burrito, there. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. I've had a few more, and only one was a little "off".

Since then, I've tried some other items. The enchiladas were really disappointing. The sauce reminded me of Western brand salad dressing.

Tonight, I had a carne asada taco, and an adobada taco. Both were a large amount of meat with guac, tomato, cilantro, and onion, on two soft corn tortillas. I'm not saying the meat was top-notch, but, not bad. The tortilla was supermarket quality, but, the rest of the ingredients seemed good and fresh. For $2.29 a piece, it sure beat going to Taco Bell.

I really rarely go to these places, but, sometimes, circumstances make them a more favorable choice.

I'm interested in finding out what items are safe, and what should be avoided.
