One of our favorite dinner places in town. Typical Mexican décor, fast friendly service. They offer seafood choices along with the usual Mexican menu items, all very well done. Our friends from Phoenix, a Mexican restaurant city, were impressed and complimentary. I'd recommend it to anyone.

My measure of quality, whether fair or not, is always the Chile Relleno. This one was very different, but maybe that's the custom here. It was mostly like a cheese omelet with a canned green chile, more omelet than chile. I am used to a fresh poblano chile, filled with cheese, battered and deep fried. The service and atmosphere were... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by someone who worked with my brother. After visiting with him, it was after 8:00 p.m. and my sister and I were wishing for Mexican food. When we looked at the menus we were surprised at the reasonable prices! Having lived in southern Arizona for many years, we are quite picky about our Mexican... More

My Carne Asada was politely and professionally delivered, and the plate actually was hot. Damn hot.

Nor was I displeased by the presentation... More
