Had a wonderful meal here on the patio, with a drink to wash it down. Service was great, the red sangria is dangerous, must get! We never had to wait for a refill. It was a delicious burrito and the queso was also quite good.

First time in Scottsdale in a long time. Hilton recommend this place for good Tex-Mex. Service was great, sat at the bar, very attentive bar staff.

They don't take reservations but if you call ahead, they will take your name and seat you ahead of any lineup that might have formed. Its very noisy, very lively. I'm only giving it a four out of five because... More

To start we had the $9 guacamole which in end we felt that no one should charge $9 for fresh guacamole. It was good but surely not $9 good. For dinner I had a combination of 3 tacos which were smaller than I expected but plenty for a human meal and my girlfriend had the enchiladas in a skillet. They... More

Ate here twice while in Scottsdale in July. I had the Burrito twice, Loved the food, atmosphere and service. Thought it was a good price for the quality of the restaurant. Love the White Queso. My wife tried two different meals and loved both.

We had lunch here and wanted something light. I had salad and it was AMAZING! Hard with salads but this had to be the best one I had, dressing was just enough and shrimp were tiny but good! Friendly staff and looks like the best time to go was at lunch time. Great choice Jacklyn!

The service was not very good, we were left hanging for food and drink. They seemed very casual about everything. With all the food places nearby it seems they would have been better overall. I really think the best part was the patio and a drink I had called the Daly.
