Located in old downtown Kingman

I always love ordering the Enchiladas, they have some of the best Mexican food in Kingman, the service is fast and the staff is friendly.

Very friendly staff & the food was the best Mexican food I've had in a long time. Nice clean facility - great service! Most definitely would recommend this eating place. Cool downtown as well as being on Route 66!

Very Happy with the service, quality and quantity of food. Very delicious Maxican food. We ordered vegetarian dishes and all of them were excellent. It was in my way to Grand Canyon trip but in future it I had chance, I will definitely go there.

This restaurant was recommended by a Kingman resident. The portions were large. food was delicious! Service was great. We ordered a burrito and chimichanga. Both with the Machaca (shredded beef) We loved it! Before dinner they brought out 3 different salsas and chips. The next time we are in Kingman we will come back.

Both of our entrees were tasty and arrived quickly. The menu featured some items I had not seen before. The restaurant was packed at lunch. We enjoyed the festive and attractive decor. I loved the mild salsa because it was just like gazpacho. The restaurant is located in the heart of the historic Route 66 downtown shopping district, so you... More

What a nice surprise it was to find this place. A group of 5 of us went there and we all had the best service and excellent authentic Mexican food! I will definitely be coming back to this restaurant when I am passing through this town. Highly recommend trying this restaurant!

I go at least twice a month, but the service is usually terrible. Restaurant is usually so busy, it's sometimes hard to get someone to take our order. Food is always great but service has it's ups and downs.

Tasty Mexican food. The enchiladas were great. Huge Margheritas. Complimentary salsa. This is a busy place open for breakfast, lunch and dinner but closing at 9pm! A little lacking in service. As we walked in we were handed a beeper. No explanation, no idea of how long a wait might be, no welcome. We had to ask twice to order.... More

I visited this restaurant with my husband. When we entered we informed the lady that we were both vegetarian. We were given complimentary tortilla chips and dips prior to ordering. We were told that one of the dips was a bean dip. We tucked into it thinking that it was beans, as we had been told. You can imagine our... More
