Delicious Mexican Food in warm & authentic atmosphere.

My husband loves the Saturday night special Pork Shank, their steaks are delicious, (once I received the wrong cut of beef, still tasty but not what I had ordered). They went over the top & graciously removed the more expensive cut that I had ordered from our bill. They volunteered to redo my... read more

Fountain Hills is amazing. The fountain in the city park is beautiful. After, we looked on TA as usual for the top rated restaurants in the area. This was the top rated Mexican place. Well done again, TA contributors. The carne asada was perfect, and came with mashed potatoes, which I have not had. Doesn't sound right, but it worked... More

Excellent Service was the start of this O' so good experience! Love how they start with the trio of salsas and chips! The stuffed peppers were excellent as a starter. My husband had the Carne Asada Relleno. It was a fun play on Steak and Potatoes! I had the Chicken Fajitas which were really good! For the area this was... More

Excellent fish tacos. Service very good. Margaritas could have been a little more shaken. Used straw half way through and found the tequila. But all our food was wonderful

Great service...welcomed &, served quickly by several employees, all very friendly & professional. Average food....chicken tacos in crispy, but greasy corn shells, filling was good. Side of rice was way too salty for my taste. 3 different types of salsa w/complementary basket of chips, nice touch. Other entrees in our group seemed OK, no one raving about their dinner. House...

I can't say enough about the Chile Relleno Con Pollo a large fresh roasted anaheim chile stuffed with refried beans and our grilled chicken, then topped with entomatada sauce and jack cheese. served with black beans and corn rice. Cooked to perfection! More than enough food and drink... great company also~

Nice change from the thick chips that taste like they came out of a grocery store. The price for sour cream is outrageous and so is the up-charge for shredded beef and Red Sauce. Just add those things into the price of the meals. Sherry did a great job serving.

We try to eat here whenever we are in Fountain Hills for an extended stay. The menu has a good variety of Mexican and Southwestern offerings. The food is very good. Meals are served with a basket of thin and fresh tortilla chips and three different salsas. The margaritas are also very good. On our most recent visit, the bartender... More
