Not your typical Mexican food.

I really enjoyed the shrimp tacos. The retired beans had a smoky flavor and the rice was different and tasty. The restaurant has terrible acoustics and the high decibel background noise did nothing to enhance the meal.

My wife and I visited Bisbee and decided to try Santiagos for dinner. The staff was friendly and food great. We had the guacamole prepared table-side and it was fantastic, prepared by the "Guac Master" as our server referred to himself ;-) For dinner we chose the house special Molcajete which was again fantastic! I have to agree with previous... More

This restaurant has a great location right in Old Bisbee between downtown and Brewery Gulch, just down the hill from The Copper Queen and behind the Mining Museum. They have fairly typical southwestern decor but the atmosphere was bright and airy and the large windows made for great people-watching. We went for lunch about 2:00 on a Saturday found the... More

This was actually my first stop after checking in at the Copper Queen Hotel. This place is walking distance from the Copper Queen. The beer was cold and the food was delicious. We heard the Fajitas come out and the smell was so good that it took over the room for several minutes. Several tables ordered the Fajitas after that... More

We had the tableside guacamole to start, which was excellent. I had the fish tacos and my husband had the pork and we shared. Everything was good and the service was fine. Can't ask for more than that
