Mesa Grande Taqueria, is a California-Mexican style restaurant in the Perinton Square Mall

Mesa Grande Taqueria, is a California-Mexican style restaurant in the Perinton Square Mall (6720 Pittsford Palmyra Rd.; it faces Rt. 250).  This casual restaurant has a lot in common with the Chipotle chain of restaurants, in that you choose your entrée (burrito, burrito bowl, salad, quesadilla), choose the  ingredients you want in that entrée (rice, beans, lettuce, cilantro, meat, etc.), and the employee makes the entrée as you move along the food line.  The add-ins are fresh and some are a nice surprise from the Chipotle version, such as the offering of cilantro and a wonderful Maple Chipotle Vinaigrette salad dressing.  If you live in Fairport the Taqueria is a great option and much closer than a Chipotle.  The staff is always friendly and helpful and the food delicious!
