Plenty of classic Sonoran choices

My wife and I ate here on August 12th. She had the Mixed Plate (Cheese enchilada, tamale, taco, picaro) and I tried the 3 Amigos (Chicken enchilada, shredded beef enchilada, & pork carnita enchilada). Both rivaled anything we can get in Phoenix. The margaritas went down easy :) Located in an older... read more

Classic Mexican food in a family friendly setting. Excellent service. Great green chili. Don't forget to save room for the sopapillas!

All four of us loved this restaurant. We loved it the minute we walked in and saw the old school style. And we really loved the margaritas and the food. The salsa was hot enough for me, but not too hot for my husband who prefers them milder. I had the special with a blue corn chicken taco, a green... More

For the money, this is one of the best Mexican food places in town. Decent size menu with plenty of good stuff. Taco Tuesday is also pretty fun but go during the summer or earlier in the day as it gets really crowded with college students during the school year. Also the staff is super friendly and fun.

What is "authentic" Mexican food? Everyone seems to know it when they taste it. For my money, this place is the real deal. It is located near a trailer park. The decor is cheapo and seedy. Our server had full-sleeve tattoos. It was packed at 3:00 pm. We started with good, warm, fresh tortilla chips and terrible salsa. We asked... More

I enjoyed returning to this restaurant where I used to eat while in college in Flagstaff in the 70s. My vivid memory was the sopapillas served complimentary at the end of the meal. I enjoyed a delicious warm sopapilla with honey after my combination plate lunch. Family owned and managed. Located in neighborhood with parking available. Items my group ate... More
