Out here for business, my coworkers took me here twice! It was great! First time, I had the lunch chimi w chicken and pinto beans. That was great! The chicken was tender and tasty. We also had chips and salsa, with a queso and chorizo sauce, and guacamole.... Mmmmmm 2nd time I had the chile relleno... This was sooooo delicious!... 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

We have come here about 5 times in the last 2 years. Portions are large so often we will split an order of fajitas. The best beans and rice we have had vs any other Mexican restaurant. We will be back on our next visit to Phoenix.

Heard and read some very good things about Raul and Theresa's. here for a baseball tournament so we went to Raul and Theresa's for dinner. Had three different items from the menu. Chile Verde, Green and Red Burrito and a combo Taco/Enchilada. For such an authentic looking place the three different dishes were very pedestrian at best and not very... More

We live near to Raul and Theresa's and we have been coming here for over 15 years. The resturant is one of those classic Mexican Restaurants that started as a very small resturant. As there following increased, they added a porch which became a room, then another porch which became a room. Look around and you will see the historical... More

I went here for the first time for lunch. The restaurant is open and clean. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. My glass was never without water (which I appreciate). They only had 3 lunch specials, but did have quiet a few dinner specials. I ordered the lunch chimis, which was a small chimichanga served with rice and beans. It... More

Don't be fooled by past supporters its not all that here! This restaurant was the only one for years in the far sw valley until the area grew so locals didn't know anything better to compare! I was taking here for years by my parents and I didn't like it as I do the old Garcias on 35th ave or... More
