We have discovered the best mexican food in Payson. The salsa is amazing! The place is packed every time we've been there.

Food is ok. Chips and salsa are not good. Restaurant is dirty in my opinion. We asked for a high chair and the high chair was still covered in rice from the previous kid. Bathrooms are horrible. Everywhere else seems dirty as well.

The food was pretty good...the salsa was exceptional!! Stopped there after a hike in Pine, Az. The only complaint was there was only ONE guy waiting on the entire restaurant. They must have been short handed. Our waiter was nice and courteous, but too busy to make our visit exceptional...

My husband and I visited the day after Memorial Day at lunch time. The dining room looked clean and well-kept. The salsa was thin; the chips were thick. There were a dozen or so other diners, but we thought service was a little slow. Once our order was taken, it came out quickly, but we had to ask for our... More

We ate here 3 times during our trip. Awsome salsa and chips. Everything we ordered was excellent, chicken fajitas, ceviche, green pork plate, tacos. All very good and reasonably priced.

We made a random stop here on a drive through Payson. The service and atmosphere were just average, but the food made up for it. I tried the spinach enchiladas and my companion tried the Mexican pizza. Our food was very good, and we both said we'd order these items again. And on a positive note for vegetarians, they have...

While visiting Payson, we had a very good dinner where the food was hot and tasty. After we were seated it took a while for the waiter to return for our order (we were pondering if this was an intentional ploy for us to pay for the second bowl of chips...), but once we ordered the service was fine and...

Husband and I visiting Payson for the weekend and were hungry for Mexican. Found this place on Tripadvisor and were extremely pleased! Great atmosphere, seated quickly, food was hot, excellent, and came out promptly. Definitely coming back on our next visit.

Excellent, and healthy fish tacos. The fish was grilled, and plenty of it, rather than deep friend. Service was very attentive ... nice atmosphere and decent prices. Nice variety on the menu, too. Portions are decent. Overall, very good value. Certainly plan a meal there on your next trip to/through Payson.
