We always prefer a table with chairs and the center "courtyard" is the place to be. Their menu allows Seniors to order from the "Lunch Menu" all day long with many good choices. They have a special early bird menu which includes dessert but we usually have to ask if it is available as we tend to forget what time... More

I have found that this restaurant is a good place to meet for drinks and perhaps an appetizer at the bar. The atmosphere is nice and the staff is friendly.

Enjoyed a Friday night happy hour here recently. Nice but small bar allowed interaction with other patrons. Some will like the elbow-to-elbow feel,while others may seek a more roomy ambiance. Drinks were decent for the price. Noshes were limited but fairly tasty. Would go back and plan to try it on a weeknight.

This is a very classy Mexican restaurant with high quality appointments. The food is also excellent. I had the chili relleno and it was very good. The price was very fair as well. Service was excellent.

One of the best Mexican Chains around. I have tried their restaurant in other places and have been pleased. The Chandler chain was no exception. There are lots of Mexican places to choose from in the Phoenix, but if you want no surprise, this is a solid bet.

Have I mentioned I love their enchiladas? Their spinach enchilada is my absolute favorite. If I ever need a decent place for a work meeting, or someplace to bring out of town guests this is where we go.

The menu was basically Tex-Mex with a good selection. I had the Juarez which had a tamale, enchilada, taco and black beans and rice. Desert was an excellent flan
