First off, I love Mexican food. Usually, you can't go wrong, but in this case I did. This was the worst place to eat, and the service was HORRIBLE! My daughter and I were done eating and were waiting to get boxes and the waitress never came. I started to watch the time and we sat there for 30 MINUTES... More

We're real critical on Mexican food, being from New Mexico we're hard to please. This place was really good and the portions are good too. The wait staff was friendly and quick. We ate here twice and it was good both times.

Best Mexican food in Fountain Hills. Food as good as their place in Cave Creek. Excellent drinks. Good selection of fresh food choices

We live in Chicago, but our realtor told us about this place. The food & service is great. The Pollo Fundido & Enchiladas De Queso-green chile is so delicious, we will definitely be back ASAP. Wish we lived closer & will tell our friends to check it out.

We live here in Fountain Hills and come here every 10 days or so and we leave for the summer (just gone 3 months) we can't wait to eat here. One of our first stops back when we get home. Take friends here when they visit and they always want to go back. Great staff and ownership..

The food is really good and a wonderful atmosphere. We usually split a meal as the portions are generous.

For starters, the green salsa could be bottled and sold. A delicious lunch out on the patio under shade trees with a little waterfall nearby - who could ask for anything more? Spicy, large portions. I'd go back again.

My husband and I were really looking forward to our Mexican night out. We love Mexican food and are always looking for good restaurants in AZ, especially since Michigan doesn't have many quality Mexican restaurants! We were really disappointed. We ordered two margaritas (one each), and during our meal began to feel very sick. I had to leave to go... More

We have eaten at El Encanto every year when we are in Fountain Hills and have usually been very pleased. This year we decided to spend our last evening in Arizona at this restaurant before heading home to Canada. We had made a reservation on the patio, and were seated at a table for two where water dripped constantly from... More
