The two dirty tables you see in the pic are at Burrito Express in Roswell,NM located not too far from The New Mexico Military Institute. We drive through Roswell from Albuquerque to Carlsbad quite a bit and stop at Burrito Express every time through.
This last time will probably be the last time we dine at Burrito Express because not only was every table dirty and unwiped, but they botched our order. The floor was filthy and unswept. They make a killer cheeseburger burrito usually but today the taste and freshness just was not there.
The couple you see at the counter were the only other patrons present and there were plenty of employees available to clean the tables and floors. The quality of the food is not the only element of customer satisfaction and Burrito Express’ bottom line may suffer if they do not figure this out. Roswell’s reputation as the land of Manana is perpetuated by shoddy service and delays. Burrito Express is no exception to this perception. Read urbanspoon.com for more negative reviews of Burrito Express. Most who dine there agree that their Mexican food is above average, but criticize their service and tendency to overcharge.
In all fairness to the business owners in Roswell, it is very difficult to find reliable qualified employees. Much of the labor pool can not pass the background check or the drug testing.
