Customers said they suffered from food poisoning and diarrhea after eating dishes including tacos and burrito bowls at the Powell, Ohio restaurant over the past few days, according to food safety website iwaspoisoned.com.

It was not immediately clear if these customers had received doctors’ reports linking their illnesses to food eaten at the chain.
