Beware of pricing

I have been here probably a half dozen times in the past couple years. My husband is a frequent inpatient at Banner hospital just down the street so it is an easy get-away for a quick lunch. This last time I ordered 2 tacos a la carte. One was 4.00 and the other was 3.75. I've never really looked... read more

Have eaten here many times over 30-40 years. Always trustworthy from the salsas to the homemade tortilla chips to the chimichangas to ... the list goes on and on. Nothing fancy and leaving the parking lot can be 'interesting' at times but this is one of the few things in life that one can depend on to be consistently excellent.

The margaritas here are super good and well poured. I love the green chile burrito. You get a giant basket of thin, crispy warm chips while waiting for your meal. Service is good and the food comes out quickly.

This place has the best chicken tacos in the Valley. Get to lunch early as the place fills up. Great chips and dip too.

The place was absolutely packed on a Saturday afternoon around 2 PM. We saw many locals and Hispanics...so we assumed the food had to be authentic. However, after we were served we concluded crowds were attracted by very reasonable prices and huge portions. Chips were fresh but salsa was very average. Beef tacos my wife had were nearly inedible. I... More

This is a hit and miss restaurant. I have been here a few times and sometimes I receive good food and other times not so good. However there service was horrible this last trip. I had to find somebody to take my order. They didn't even bring water. When the check finally came we split the check, it took forever... More

This appears to be a family owned, nice little restaurant. It is not fancy but great food. I tried something different and new to me-corn tamales with green chile. I thoroughly enjoyed it. My colleagues enjoyed their food and adult beverages.

Very good! Be aware the shredded chicken dishes are not all white meat - there is tons of dark meat too which took me by surprise. But otherwise, fabulous, fabulous meal! Thank you!

I really dug the vibe of this place and do not doubt its authenticity and am well-aware that "authenticity" comes with dark meat chicken which I really hate. My date and I hit there Memorial Day weekend and absolutely LOVED the salsas on the table - fresh and exploding with heat and flavor. Chips are $1 but are WELL worth... More
