We were lucky enough to have Graciela as our waitress and what a wonderful experience it was. She was personable and professional. Our drink glasses were never empty and she provided wonderful service. We both ordered the Grand Platter (knowing we would be taking half of it home) and it was delicious. The price is rather high, but the food... More

This has become my favorite Mexican Restaurant Ever! The bacon wrapped shrimp is incredible and pretty much everything is great! We have been working our way through the menu and so far it is all really, really good!

Very upscale and interesting place to dine. The food is first-class and reasonably priced. We really enjoy eating there. The best Mexican restaurant we have ever dined at. You will enjoy!

With outstanding atmosphere and food to match, I've found one, if not the favorite, restaurant of mine in the Phoenix area. From the quesadillas to the fajitas it was one outstanding and abundant meal! Ate at the bar, with great guidance from the server chose an excellent meal and an fabulous scratch margarita. We'll be back again and again!

Almost every time I get the Grande, the portion size is enough that I always take a full meal home for lunch the next day.

This is a BIG restaurant, usually very noisy and quite frankly the food is average. We've been here many times with large and small groups and my comments stand. The service is average too. I think the place is just too big!

I'm sorry to hear you're not the biggest fan of our atmosphere, but we love the hustle and bustle of such a big space. We strive to provide everyone who comes in with a truly stellar experience, and I hope you'll be back so we can do that for you sometime. All the best, George Jowell More

After church I took my family here for lunch last Sunday. The food seems to always be great. It was. This time however, our server made the trip worthwhile. José genuinely appeared to enjoy serving us. It was so nice to have a friendly and efficient person taking care of us. Because of the food and because of the service... More

Great food, terrific service, happy family -- I don't think I could ask for much more, Loyd! Thanks so much for coming by, and we'd love to have the family back any time. I'll be sure to pass your compliments along to José as well -- he's the best! Take care, George Jowell More
