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.

We have tried all the other places in town and we always come back here. It's not perfect but it's the best in town and they are very accommodating to special requests. Love the Margaritas but really wish they would get some "skinny Margaritas".

We had dinner at Casa Alvarez and we were not disappointed. It reminded us of the old time AZ Mex restaurants we used to love in Northern AZ 30 something years ago. We love that old time, nothing fancy, but very homey vibe. Unfortunately, the weather was a little too cool to enjoy dinner outside, but the creek side location... More

You can't really get good Mexican food in Virginia, where I live. I found this place after hiking Thumb Butte and decided to give it a try. I was greeted immediately and the staff was very friendly. The only complaint I had, which is very minor, is that my meal was brought out about 2 minutes after my soup appetizer.... More
