Great Lunch at a reasonable price such a great value!

My wife and I stop here many times for their lunch specials. You cannot beat the $6.99 lunch specials which includes rice and beans or in my case I order all beans. We both order the Chicken Burro with Green Sauce for $1 more and man is that good. The chicken is moist the sauce has a sweet tinge... read more

The service here was amazing. The food was just as good. We were visiting family and we love coming here with them each year. I ordered a taco, thinking it would be a regular taco from a sit-down restaurant- kind of soft, without fresh veggies. This taco had two layers of tortillas on the tacos and the veggies were the...

We went here on a busy Saturday night so there was a long wait since when I called they said they didn't take reservations unless it was a party of 10 or more. The decor is lovely & the drinks were good as we stood outside waiting. We got seated in the small back room & I could see &... More

We have been there a number of times and have taken friends to experience Mexican food. Very good food, large portions..sometimes too large and great service. Love the decor!! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting the Mexican flavor.

Great food. Not a hole in the wall find. You're paying for a nice, family friendly dining experience.

Visiting friends in the area we went on a Saturday night. Loved eating outside. The service was excellent and the food was great. I had Monterey enchiladas, the shredded beef was tender and the flavors intoxicating. My husband had a unique chile relleno with pine nuts, he is still raving about it. Loved the chips and salsa. Attentive wait staff.... More

I like this restaurant. We like to take visitors there for a meal. The food is very good, good size portions, enough for two people to share. The atmosphere is nice, lots of things to look at on the walls.

As Patty H said the Mesa location was closed awhile ago. Their food as always been top of the mark and service as well. with just the one location open sometimes the wait time is quite long but well worth it. Cannot wait for the Greenfield Taqueria to open (closer to where we live). Long time fans of this restaurant.

We eat here frequently and have never had a complaint or a bad meal. My wife was a teacher at a nearby elementary school and she would stop at the take out section and pick up a good dinner on the way home. We have eaten here at least once a month or so for years. Recommend it for a... More

We used to go there often. The main restaurant had a large fire that closed it. The owners chose not to re-open. The place has Ben purchased by another and I believe will be called Rosas.
