Simple, but delicious Mexican food. The salsa is amazing! The service on the cantina side is always excellent.

In downtown Prescott, here's your best choice for Mexican. Menu has the traditional favorites. Very clean and great service. They brag on their Rellano which I found very good and you should try!

Never have I felt so unwelcome or disrespected in my whole life! Being asked by the owner to leave because we had 2 kids sitting at a table that were not eating (well he didn't know we had 2 other people coming in) we didn't even get to eat because our kids were apparently taking money away from his 35...

The chipotle sauce was nothing more than mayonnaise with green food coloring. The portions were adequate but the price was ridiculous..$5.75 per taco! We also ordered shrimp tacos and they shells (2) were so soggy they... More

And I love mexican food, take trips to New Mexico just to eat. We stopped in for lunch, and I ordered a pork tamale and black beans.

The food is always good including drinks and the atmosphere is relaxed but fun. It's located right down town with all the action; walking distance to many places. Give it a try if you haven't done so.

All I wanted was some carne asada tacos. Hard to mess that up, but they did. Mostly lettuce, hard tortilla on the outside edge, soggy in the middle. Pick it up and everything falls out. 3 thin strips of "carne asada" that was mostly fat were found under the lettuce. It was beef, but definitely not carne asada. The beans... More
