Authentic Mexican food This is a great place with wonderful attentive staff. Don't waste your time on the other ones in town. You won't be disappointed. Very clean establishment.

The waitress was very friendly and fun to talk to. The margaritas were great. The chips and salsa were yummy. The menu is positively gargantuan and it took me quite a long time to decide what I wanted. I got a salad in effort to be somewhat healthy, but, and this is my only complaint, there were far more onions... More

I tried this restaurant on a recent trip to Bullhead and ordered a Carne Asada enchilada and taco combo plate with beans and rice. It was not a good meal as the meat was tough and over cooked. I had one draft beer and the bill was 18.00 for lunch. Sorry I won't be stopping again.

Had dinner here after deciding I did not want fast food. Walked in and was seated after about a minute. It Took the waiter about 6 minutes to come and take my drink order. The restaurant was not busy. Someone else brought me my chips and salsa. Salsa had no flavor, both the spicy and mild. After about five more... More

Great atmosphere and food. I've had the burrito and fajitas and both were very good. I highly recommend this place.

We dined at 2 in the afternoon. No one was in the restaurant. You would think the service would be good, right? WRONG! It took 20 minutes to have our order taken. It was 30 minutes to get our order. To make it worse, no less than 5 times our waiter kept coming to tell us they are working on... More

OK Mexican food. I wasn't that impressed for the amount we paid it was just okay. I really don't if I'd ever go here again. I guess if I were really hungry for Mexican food it would suffice. Again, a little pricing for what you get.

I judge Mexican restaurants by how well they do chiles rellenos, and mine was quite good. The accompanying carne asada was tough but tasty. Most of my table mates thought the food was merely OK. The service was good, but they irritated me a bit when they suggested that our group sit at a table near the kitchen and clearing... More
