Quick, priced right, and pretty good

Heading out to AZ and stopped here for lunch. I had tacos and my brother had a quesodilla. We also had queso with our chips. All was good!

My husband and I come here when we get a craving for tasty Mexican food and aren't disappointed! The prices are reasonable and the food is full of flavor!

It was late, we were tired, and this place was recommended by our hotel. And I'm so glad they did. We had a lovely meal. The three sauces on the table put this over the top for me. I liked the red sauce, but kept eating one of the two green sauces. It was spicy and good and I would... More

It's not bad it's not the best but I LOVED the hot sauce, took some to go and put it on everything from meats or to spice up veggies

Food was great...very authentic. I wanted caldo but since it was late at night, they were no longer serving it as it had gotten saltier through the day.

If there were ever a motivator to make you wanna get out of bed and put on some pants on a weekend morning, this is it. The juevos rancheros come with three home-made sauces on the side,... More

We really had a good experience in eating there. The food was good and place was clean. Food came out promptly. Service was okay but not friendly and welcoming. We plan on going there again.

Had beef Milanesa. Hard to find in the states. The preparation was good. The interior was like a Mexican sports bar with predominately Mexican men there. Food ok, could use some decoration and a family atmosphere.

Not the biggest fan of Mexican in any food form so I may not be the best to judge. I had a take out order of chicken quesadilla. They were okay. Made fast, very little wait time. Staff was friendly. My order was still hot by the time I ate it. Portion was large and the price was fair at... More
