I am not sure where those recent negative reviewers ate... because the food my family and I had was flavorful, spicy, fresh and delicious! The Salsa was fresh and spicy, the tacos were fantastic, and Guac was fresh and delicious as well. I ordered the Chile Relleno and cheese enchilada combination, because if a restaurant does THOSE items well, I... More

1) Mild salsa is Pato sauce-out of the can. I couldn't believe it. 2) queso dip was fake cheese? It had to be out of a can. It was the color and texture of honey mustard sauce. 3) Shredded beef taco meat was gagging. 4) green chili sauce definitely straight from the can or bottle and then didn't even have... More

We have sampled chicken enchiladas, relleno, beef tacos, beans , rice, chips and salsa. All were very fresh tasting and tasty. I also love that their beer is ice cold and $2.75 Coronas you can't beat that!

I left the Avondale, AZ area in 1992. I returned for the first time in 2007, again in 2010, and just recently in 2014. When I first started going to Raul & Theresa's it was a hole in the wall one room shack. They have grown by leaps and bounds but the food taste the same. I love their chimichangas... More

My family and I had the following: Chimichanga - very bland chicken. Not marinated at all. Some spices but overall needed some flavor. Soft Taquitos (Rolled Tacos) - again the same as above. Tortillas were fine, but the meat lacked marination. Its not tasty. Tacos (Beef) - My son enjoyed them but said he had better elsewhere in Phoenix. Quesadilla... More

A very relaxed place, plenty of room for large families and child friendly. A good selection of various dishes all very good. They have both spicy and mild foods. I have family in the area and we always make it a point to go there at least once.

Our first time at this restaurant. We visited during Cactus League baseball after a game in Goodyear. Excellent food. I had tacos, she had chicken fajitas, both were very, very good. The tacos were much like what I got back in the 50s and 60s: folded tortilla stuffed with beef, then fried, lettuce etc added after. Not the fried shells... More

Don't you just feel sorry for any restaurant in the Valley of the Sun, which sells Mexican food? I mean, just look at the competition; sort of like opening a place that sells sand and hoping you'll stand out. But this restaurant does, indeed, stand out. Avondale/Goodyear has and has had its share of good Mexican restaurants. So what's the... More
