Hope you are hungry when you come here because the portions are huge! I'm a big eater and I couldn't finish mine. The food was pretty good, basic burrito, beans, and rice. The staff was quite friendly, the facilities were very clean and colorful. Kept my drink full, which is a requirement for me.

We ate here because we were staying behind the restaurant at SHS for a horse show. What a huge mistake. My little daughter loved the bright lacquered decor, but that was all. I barely made it 50 yards to the hotel before I was so sick I considered going to Prime Care. the server was really friendly and attentive, but... More

2nd visit to this location. Atmosphere terrific, ambiance great, foor very well presented and delicious....but....here goes. I ordered 3 steak tacos on corn tortillas which included refried beans and rice. The tacos consisted of soft corn tortillas (delicious) filled with ample steak (done to perfection) and cilantro (my favorite garnish). That's it! NO cheese, NO sour cream, NO lettuce, and... More

Good Mexican food at very, very friendly prices for everything. Friendly, prompt service. Good place for either lunch - combo at US$ 5.99 - or dinner - combo at US$ 6.99. Local beer at US$ 2, jumbo house margaritas at US$ 3 and premium at US$ 6.

We ate at Sierra Fria last week, and will not go back. We were "greeted" without a smile or welcome, and it never got better. The margaritas were ok, and are only 2 for 1 during happy hour until 7 pm. The salsa had a tinny taste to it like it was out of an aluminum can...yuck. The chips were... More
