Good Food and Excellent Service

This is a very small establishment. We were there on a chilly evening and waited about 20 minutes for a table. Our food came quickly and was hot and yummy. The service was super! Everyone was friendly and hustling as they were super busy. It has a homey atmosphere. We only wish that they had... read more

Badly under or over-seasoned, soggy, gamy tasting chicken in quesadilla. Flavorless, greasy. Service good but busy overworked waitresses. No contemporary cuisine frills. None of our party of four liked their dinners. Despite the good reviews, I really think you should skip this place - risky. Locals like it, and prices are low.

Had dinner here April 2015 and the food was plentiful and authentic. A family-run operation, and lots of local folks seem to go there regularly. There aren't a lot of restaurants in the area - this was a good recommendation from the folks at Canyons Lodge. Recommend.

When we sat down, a free hot nachos with salsa sauce was given to us to munch on it. The Burritos were very delicious and the price is very reasonable. The wait time was short as well. The waitress was very cordial. We enjoyed our dinner that night.

We were late arriving back into Kanab. We called the restaurant, and even though we'd arrive after closing, they encouraged us to come. We did and were thoroughly impressed and appreciative. The food was excellent, the service outstanding and the family that runs the restaurant could not have been nicer. We will recommend this restaurant to all that want an... More

Driving through Kanab on the way to Bryce. We stopped. Ate outside. Service was kind and the food was really good. We had the enchiladas and the beef was perfect. Sauce was great and the chips while waiting were warm.

Arrived 15 minutes before they closed and were greeted with a smile! Excellent service by Rosa! My husband had the special burrito and my daughter and I had the Chicken avocado Tostado. Both were excellent! Will definitely return on the next trip!

Food pretty good ... Fresh and hot. Fairly standard Mexican food . Staff were friendly and kind but service a bit slow . Really enjoyed it though. Bathrooms spotless clean always a good sign

Kanab is full of hotels, but very short of restaurants. We ended up in this Mexican one, which was absolutely crowded (no wonder, it was really the only option) and had to wait for more than 30 min. When food cam it was just very, very basic Mexican food. Nothing to remember. Staff was nice, though.
