My husband and I took our daughter to eat lunch here. My daughter enjoyed the kids taco plate. I ordered a margarita and it was so sweet and no alcohol. My husband and I got burritos. They were OK. The thing that got me was they charged for a second basket of chips and salsa. So when my food came... More

Stopped in Saturday night for dinner after a referral by a local. The tableside guacamole Was excellent. The vegetable burrito was as large as it was good. While I shared, there was more than enough for two. Service was friendly and attentive.

I really like this place. Friendly staff and great service. Large plates of food. Luz, the owner, is a kick in the pants. Food comes out quickly and is exactly what's expected. One of our family's go to places

What a great place for Mexican dinner with friends. Food is what I call 'real Mexican' as it is similar to what I grew up with in southern Arizona. Portions are large, wait staff is attentive, and service is prompt.

Last two visits in afternoon, I've had to wait to be sat down at least five minutes and last time had to go to kitchen to get someone. Seems there is only one waiter doing both bar and dining room so the service has been slower. It's just after lunch that I've noticed this. I go there about every two... More

Group of 7 went here for a birthday dinner. It wasn't very busy but they tried to put us at a table for 4,and seemed upset when we asked for a bigger table that just opened up. Food was good but service needed improvement. We used to visit here quite a bit, but it has been a while, and service... More

We were staying at the Comfort Inn and want a restaurant that was within walking distance. This place is great . The food was wonderful. I had the chicken Fajita salad. My hubby had the vegetable fajita. The hardest part was making a choice. The wait staff was friendly though overwhelmed by a large group that had arrived before us.... More

This is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants on the East side. Not fancy or touristy, mostly locals eat here. It can be busy especially mid week between 5 and 6:30, but opens up after that. Favorite dishes are the polo ala crema, chicken enchiladas, the carne pot roast and vegetables was very good. Large portions and left overs if... More
