It is not bad, but it isn't the best! Chips were cold and plentiful, two salsas (mild and spicy) not fresh, combination entrees are large but meats were dry and tasted the same. Clean, good service, fair prices and cold beer!

It's dated decor accentuates the long established family feel of this local gem that you'll go to for the great food, not the furnishings. Be sure to ask for the spicy salsa, because the mild stuff they drop off with the chips doesn't compare in taste or zing.

Every time I eat here I'm never disappointed. Family and friends that come into town this is always the first stop. They all live it and I'll continue to bring family and friends to this restaurant.

This restaurant has become are normal hangout. I haven't found anything that I don't like yet. Their Teresa special burrito and their chimichanga are my favorites. the portions are large and will provide multiple refills of soda and chips and salsa.

Whenever we are on the west side of the PHX metro area, we make time to visit this restaurant. The food is always outstanding. The first time we ate there around 15 years ago, we took one look at the clientele and know we were in the right place - locals were there; firefighters were there; business men were there;... More

It has been a few years since we have visited here and we were saddened to hear of Theresa's passing. We found the restaurant is still in good hands. Excellent food and better than and Mexican restaurant back home.

Visiting AZ from the east coast, we wanted some real texmex food....but we're vegetarian and couldn't actually eat anything at the super-authentic taco stands we tried. This place hit that sweet spot where my native Texan spouse was actually happy, but not everything had pork in it. Definitely not fancy, but clean, quick, friendly and delicious.

You may get seated right away, but restaurant always short handed in staff and it may we awhile before your order is taken. Chips are stale but they continue to refill your basket. You never know what kind of food you will get. I guess it depends on the cook working that day. Count on waiting and waiting for your... More

When back in AZ, this is always one of our stops. We call it our FIX before we head off again. Our favorite is "Theresa's Special" we share this, cause with the chips and salsa, we always get full. We go there with a large group when NASCAR is there at PIR and even though service can be a bit... More
