The restaurant is located in a very plain strip mall, but the food, service and atmosphere is excellent. We loved the guacamole appetizer. The menu had a lot of great gluten free and vegetarian offerings. The mushroom and spinach enchilada was tasty and not too cheesy. Our server was a NAU student... read more

I can understand the wait for a table, but otherwise it took forever for our server to take our orders. And from what we observed, the restaurant wasn't that busy for a Tuesday night. Other than the service, the food was good, I had the taco salad which filled me up and the self serve salad bar is a nice... More

They've remodeled. It looks great! The food and drink are yummy. The gluten free menu has many options! Don't forget to ask about the daily specials. Many are gluten free as well.

My family makes it a point to stop at this restaurant when we are going through Flagstaff. Their Carnitas plate is excellent, as is their Carne Adovado.

I have been here many, many times and always have a great meal. The salsa bar is great, the Lily's margarita is better than Lily's (a restaurant in Rocky Point) and there are some real gems on the menu.

Try the dorados style tacos which are like flash fried tacos. Harder than soft tacos, softer than hard tacos but delicious. Chips were good, thicker style and there was a fresh salsa bar. Was a busy place and we would return.

Traveling with a nut allergy grandson, finding a place to eat is a challenge. The manager assured us he could deliver a nut free dinner and took the time to clean the grill and cook our grandson's taco himself. Very kind and it went a long way to allaying his concerns. On top of that the food was good and... More

Raw chicken, bland pork burro, forgotten beans and rice, one plate of beans was black while two others were grey. And super slow.
