We stopped here on our way through Wickenburg and had a wonderful meal. They made Chili Verde Burritos for us and the chili was great! The burrito was full of hot chili verde and then it was smothered with more chili and fresh Mexican cheese. Yum! They had an awesome guacamole dip and their salsa was to die for!!! The... More

Great family run restaurant. Although busy at noon, the staff still greeted us with a smile and kind words. Service was very quick and food was not only good but the portions were quite large. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any travelers in the Wickenburg, Arizona area !

I always order chili relleno to see if I will return to a Mexican Food Cafe. This one passed with flying colors. The taco salad is about the best I have ever eaten.

There was nothing special about our three meals. Typically large portions. The shrimp salad was good, but the cilantro dressing was awful (it is served on the side, fortunately). The smoked pork chops tasted like ham and were better without the salsa.

Awsome Mexican food! Homemade salsa was excellent! Slight kick so you know it's homemade. Best mexican I've had in a while, good sized portions. Be sure to try the shreaded chicken burito with the green sauce.Friends of ours suggested this place, good choice. 2 more return during our trip. Try it out!

The taco salad is large and very good. The chili relleno was very good. Chips were excellent as well as the salsa and bean dip. We will return!

First time I ate here was Cinco De Mayo 2010, all beers were $1 and appetizers were half price. One of the appetizers we ordered was a Mexican Pizza, I recall it being delicious. Went back last week and the Mexican Pizza was as good as I remembered. Nice place, good food, good atmosphere. The chips and salsas were very... More
