This place was definitely #1 in eating establishments that we visited on our trip to Tombstone. The vegetables and ingredients were very fresh which I presume isn't easy to achieve in the middle of the desert-- and the chef clearly is talented. Full bar. Also, having a lot of critical food-borne allergies my waitress was very understanding when I had... More

After being $10 dollar'd to death in Tombstone this place was a refreshing oasis in the sea of tourism shake downs! Service was excellent, prices were reasonable and the entire staff was friendly and efficient. I ordered the steak fajita and prickly pear margarita, both were excellent and the whole family enjoyed their meals along with the best salsa and... More

Off the Main Street (Allen) in Tombstone but well worth it. I was craving some fish tacos and they had them. Not your regular fish sticks but nice size grilled fish pieces with black beans and rice. The chips and salsa were excellent and there was enough to spoon the spicy salsa over my plate. Service was quick and the... More

We enjoyed a dinner here. There was a guitarist playing there which was very easy to listen to as we satisfied our thirst and hunger. The service was good.

We stopped here for lunch, and what a great decision that was! We decided to try the prickly pear margarita, as recommended by our server; it was very tasty and refreshing. The complimentary chips and salsa were excellent. For entrees, one of us had the grilled fish tacos with black beans and Mexican rice, while the other had chicken enchiladas... More

The food here is a tiny bit bland, but nonetheless tasty. The grilled fish tacos were lovely, the fish soft and moist, not the least bit over cooked. The rice was fluffy and nice, just needed a wee bit more seasonings. Of course, we live for spicy food, and not everyone does, so they aim for the middle. I'd like... More

After watching the parade, we took the whole family to have mexican food at Cafe Margarite. My wife and I have eaten there on several occasions while visiting Tombstone on Wyatt Earp Days, Vigilente Days. etc. They did a fantastic job of setting up and holding two big round tables for all 12 of us.
