Had dinner and it was excellent. I had the beef enchilada and beef taco combo plate and it was outstanding. The marguerita was blended and frothy, excellent. Will return for sure.

My husband and I went there one evening and we're pleasantly surprised. It was good Mexican food and we both enjoyed or dinners.

Nothing special but good basic Mexican-American food at a good price. Spacious dining area and comfortable booths. Service is friendly and professional. Generous portions.

We had dinner here one evening. We liked the food here but I wouldn't say that this is the best Mexican food I've had. We really enjoyed the complimentary chips and salsa, the hot salsa was really spicy. :) Pretty decent and I would eat here again. Good service.

Ate dinner here this week. Food was about what you would expect from a Mexican restaurant. Salsa's were good although chips were average. The entrees were also good although not unique really. I can recommend it overall.

We had dinner here at 5:30 on a Tuesday which was great since it was Taco Tuesday and Happy Hour (till 6pm). That is a double bargain. The thee types of tacos were delicious and they have a good selection of beer on tap and in bottles. Restaurant is nice and service was good. I will definitely eat here again.

A jewel in a town of mostly fast food. Enchada's has been here a very long time which is testimony to value received. The food is prepared well, and is good (not excellent). The menu choice is also very good. The drinks are GREAT. A full bar and a hefty pour. Good Margaritas too!

We started off with around the frozen margaritas that didn't taste like there was much of anything in them. It almost tasted like we were eating whipped frozen cotton candy. Kind of strange actually. For fine Mexican cuisine, they certainly have pricing down and are very proud of their food. Coming from Houston and having lots of Tex-Mex place is... More

We live in Bullhead City, AZ part-time and drive back through 29 Palms often. This weekend was the first time we have stopped at this restaurant, and although it might be a stretch to consider the faire "fine" Mexican food (as is advertised on the sign), it is certainly better than the fast food and other options in town, and...
