The food is great, flavorful, traditional, affordable and everything you could want from Mexican food. Rosa is lovely and always anticipates our need for more salsa. Will consistently return!

This place is jumping. It was recommended by the clerk at our hotel, and was a good lead. The place fills up at dinner, and it seems everyone is there and many of them seem to know each other. The State Highway Patrol was there and he greeted three tables of friends too. We were the out of towners and... More

From Tex-mex to a taco stand in Anaheim, Mexican food wears many masks but this domino is exactly perfect for what most Americans have come to expect. Do not expect haute cuisine nor food truck tamales. This place is perfect for Anglo-Mex.

You can tell this place is a labor of love for the folks who run it. Service is fast and friendly. The food, though, is just OK. We had fajitas (chicken for the sig other, vegetarian for me). The ingredients were of good quality, but the sauteed mixture was very greasy, way too much oil. And they provided only three... More

We ate here for dinner on our recent stay in Kanab. The place was rocking busy when we arrived but we timed it just right and were seated immediately. Not long after, there was a line out the door and into the parking lot, so it seems obvious that people like this place. Service was fast, and it seemed like... More

We were here at 8pm & it was still very busy. The wait staff were friendly & attentive. We were served fresh chips with salsa. I had the pork chili verde & it was good. Another had the barbeque chicken salad plate & it was fantastic with fresh avocado. I would eat here again.

Had a late-ish Sunday lunch here, prices were fair, good choice but we did expect a little more spice? Food was fine, tasty but we did feel it lacked something. Service was friendly but not over the top.

We recently moved to Kanab and are trying all the local restaurants. It scares me that this is number 4 on trip advisor. The food was bland and the service was atrocious. I got a chicken burrito and my boyfriend got the three enchiladas meal. Both of meals lacked flavor. The chicken in my burrito tasted like it was from... More
