Best mex food in Prescott

Ben takes good care of his guests with great food margs and reasonable prices. Hidden behind the Dinner Bell but worth the search

When we commented on the quality of the chicken in our entrees, the owner responded it was high quality. It was like carcass scrapings -- very poor quality.

All but tasteless. Heavy on the "glop" (you know, the huge melted cheese thingy they put on top to add...dunno...something). Salsa is watery, little taste. Red sauces are just hot, nothing flavorful there. Prices are really exorbitant for what they serve you. How does this food come from the folks from Dinner Bell...???

I really love the salsa, my enchilada was good and the rice tasted freshly made. I just can't get passed how dirty the whole place looks and that you can see into the piled up kitchen doesn't help. The margarita wasn't good as all I could taste was the premade mix and it wasn't cold enough.

It's behind the Dinner Bell Cafe on the creek, just a short walk from the plaza. The food is plentiful and homemade. The pork green burrito is lighly spiced and delicious. The evening we were there the special was an ancho chile and beef dinner - superb.

We tried this restaurant because of the good reviews. We were amazed how awful the food was and the service was not very friendly at all. Not sure where those good reviews came from. We were so hoping it would be good.

We joined 4 of our friends here for dinner on Saturday night. Nice patio dining next to Granite Creek. Excellent service - very attentive staff. Excellent salsa - both red and green and we all agreed it was good. I really liked the fact that soup or salad was part of the meal and that salad was fresh spring greens... More

Tucked away behind the Dinner Bell Cafe....& adjacent to the creek, this is really a great little place. The owners greet you & help you manuever through their large menu. While the restaurant itself is not fancy, the food is worth it. Great flavors and very fast service. I had the Steak Milanese & my friend had Chicken Mole Enchiladas...both... More

I love this restaurant. The décor is eclectic and the staff (owner and wife) were extremely friendly. Fast service, lots of good food and the margarita was excellent. We will be back....thanks.

Excels at average. Server was very nice. NO limes which I thought odd. Don't make a special trip. Okay if you're in the area.
