Still okay but not as impressive this time out

In the past i have always liked this location of Ajo Al's. i still like the design with the high ceilings and architecture and poster art on the walls. The service was acceptable as well though maybe not memorable but sometimes that's good, better than bad service which certainly sticks out. The... read more

Food is consistently good and service is as well. They make an awesome sour cream sauce on their chimis.

I ordered but didn't feel like being in public after having a long day. I was pleasantly surprised they have take out. As always the food was amazing. I personally love the nep. Pizza. Between our group we shared a cheese crisp, and then had the pizza, and chicken quesadilla, beef enchilada.

Service is slow and the food is not what it used to be. The original Ajo Al's was and is still better than the 75th Ave location.

We only went to Ajo Al's one time, not that we didn't like the food, atmosphere, service, but because there are so many Mexican food restaurants in the area that we prefer.

Usually my wife & I stick with restaurants we have heard something good about. This time we chose this place on a whim. For us bad choice. In this area of Glendale if the place is fairly empty on a Saturday afternoon that was strike #1. Directed to a patio table that was shabby looking and a little dirty stike... More

My wife and I have eaten at Ajo Al's, as well as most all the Mexican restaurants in this area. This is good Arizona Sonoran style Mexican food. The other night we went for dinner and really enjoyed our food. She had a taco and enchilada, and I had the chili burro, enchilada style which was very good. The restaurant... More

We spent a week in Phoenix and it seemed most of our meals took us in the direction of a Mexican restaurant. This one was another good choice. Nice decor and service. Love those chips and salsa with a bottle to replenish the tasty and slightly spicy stuff quickly right on the table. Had another salad that with the great... More

My sister and I took a friend to this location for supper. The waitress came to the table to take our drink orders and when she asked me what I wanted I asked what their house red wine was. She said, and I quote: " I don't know anything at all about wine what was it you wanted to know?"... More
