Great friendly service

My friend and I had lunch at this cafe. I had a house margarita, which was good. Next time I plan on having one made (top shelf). The good was excellent and the portions where very generous. You can eat inside or enjoy patio service. The young women who served us were happy to provide us with... read more

Dinner on the patio was very nice. I learned to ask for the traditional margarita instead of the prickly pear shown on the menu. Prickly pear is good if you like sweet.

This is my second visit in Tombstone and on my way out I saw this restaurant off the main drag. I thought I give it a chance because my last time here at Big Nose Kates was a train wreck. I had to Carmelo, chips, salsa and cheese dip and it was very good.

The fish tacos and green chili tamales were great. We tried all the sides and they were good also. Would definitely recommend. Try the prickly pear margarita!

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.
