We were meeting out of state friends at Taliesan for a tour and needed something close by for lunch after our tour. We checked TripAdvisor and this establishment came up with very good reviews. We ordered and started off with the chips and salsa. This was the highlight of our meal. There were four of us, each ordering something different:chicken... More

Drove an hour to get there but was worth every mile. Sat outside on the patio and enjoyed every second. Started with the best margarita's then came the fire roasted salsa and chips. There were 5 adults and we all ordered something different. We had to try each others food because we raved about what we had. They have different... More

Plan ahead, make a reservation if you want to go here. Very popular and crowed place, both the bar and restaurant. Family of 5 and we only waited about 20 mintues when we were told 40, sat outside and the heaters were just right. Nice menu, good service, live entertainment. We would go here again next time we're in town.... More

The food, atmosphere, and waiter made this an exceptional experience. The best part was the food -southwest Mex cuisine (not Tex-Mex), which was tasty, unique and freshly prepared (and not frozen and heated up). It had a section with a bar with tv screens, restaurant section, and outdoor seating (however overlooking a parking lot). The staff were very polite, and... More

Our group of 10 dined here on a Friday night; it was a total random choice from the a list given to us by the nearby Marriott. We had a lovely evening and a fantastic meal! There was live music playing, but we were seated in a private room which was great for being able to visit on our first... More

My parents are moving out to Phoenix from the east and every time we go to their condo, we eat here. You simply cannot go wrong. It is a great new take on Mexican that will not disappoint!

We dine here for lunch about once a year and always love their fare and very friendly staff. This time I tried the pulled pork sandwich and was not disappointed

This is a New Mexican restaurant as opposed to a Mexican restaurant. The food is similar but the preparation is different and more exciting. The food is all delicious and the margaritas are great. The atmosphere is upbeat and fun. Take a chance and try something a little different!

We chose this restaurant because of the ratings and were not disappointed. Our group all agreed that the margaritas were delicious...we had the Cadillac and the Silver Dollar choices (with the silver dollar, they gave you a U.S. silver dollar coin!). All of the food was good...I was unhappy that I didn't get to try the corn chowder, knowing that... More

I can't say enough good things about this neighborhood restaurant, a pleasant upgrade from the usual Mexican fare. Our group of three ordered the New Mexican style stacked enchiladas -- one apiece chicken, shredded beef and pork, topped with an optional egg, prepared in any style. They were tasty and nicely presented with beans and rice. Our waiter was prompt... More
