This was a nice surprise after a last minute drive to Utah to visit a friend. This is a family owned business and my wife is ready to drive there again. It is right off the 15 freeway in Cerdar City exit 57 right across the street from Walmark.

Great food, friendly staff and authentic. Prices are reasonable, selection is vast, there is a salsa bar so you can have it as mild or hot as you like. Daily specials & the decor is a little slice of Mexico right here in southern UT. They also sell Mexican candy, novelties and you can even take a picture of yourself... More

I had been to the restaurant about 6 years ago and never returned. A friend told me they had the best chile rellenos and tamales in town so while my wife was away I decided to go. The chile relleno was fair but the tamale I gave up on after two bites. I left disappointed again. Nice people but I... More

We eat here frequently ....like once a week.... the staff are wonderful and always have a smile for us. The food is muy bueno ! Seriously. My hubby likes the Mexican Flag enchiladas, I'm addicted to the Sopes and our daughter is a quesadilla and/or nacho nut. Plenty on the plate.... and take home is no problem.

We had been on the road most of the day and we were looking for a good Mexican food. We both tried the number 8 and and we were happy about our selection. Even at 8:30 on a Saturday evening this place was busy. I saw the salsa bar on the way in but the salsa served table side was... More

I've been here a few time with friends and family. The restaurant is very family friendly, has large portions, and a great salsa bar. It's a nice place to come and eat and then sit and talk while getting a few drinks. The atmosphere is loud so bringing kids is not a problem.

Interesting place in a strip mall. Combination Mexican market and restaurant. The restaurant has cute booths with dividing walls and individual chandelier lamp fixtures. They have a wonderful salsa bar, although the waitress failed to mention it. We saw other diners coming back with different salsas,and then we decided to try it too. Food was very good, and reasonably priced.

My wife and I ate here in early October. It is not a fancy restaurant, but that did not concern the clients like us, who nearly filled the place. We picked our own table, and were quickly given chips and menus. A few minutes later, the waitress took our order, and our food came an under 20 minutes. It was... More
