Okay

Came here for my anniversary and the food was just ok. Salsa was nothing special and neither was the food.

We had a party of 7 and the wait was less than 20 minutes at noon! The service was great! Everyone that worked there seemed to be helping each other. I ordered off the lunch menu and got a chicken chimi, it was delicious. All the food came out correctly and hot. I would definitely come back. The only thing... More

This place has been around for some time but I visited it for the first time for dinner. On a week day it was packed and there was 15 minute waiting. The restaurant was full of energy and I liked it. We were seated sooner than expected. Our server was good and was able to give good suggestions. They have... More

The food is completely disgusting. I gave it 3 opportunities but all 3 times they have been the most disgusting place I have ever eaten. I am sorry for the bad critic but it is completely terrible. Never had had nasty food in my life. IT IS NOT AUNTHETIC MEXICAN FOOD.

Reasonably priced. The chips were stale but the salsa had a little bite but thin. The chicken enchiladas were bland but the amount of food was filling. Good place to eat on a budget.

I know we have said it before that we wouldn't be back because of the food but we were invited and didn't want to be ungrateful. Once again we were sadly disappointed in the quality of the food and the flavor. I ordered a green chili chimi and out came a burro with red sauce on it. I said please... More

It was not bad but it could be better. If you know real authentic Mexican food, you'll find yourself criticizing this place. It is definitely one of the locals favorite spot. The environment is great, service is good, but for he price I was expecting a little more from their dishes.

Reasonable prices and excellent Mexican food! This is in a residential area just off north 4th and Rte 66. This is the best Mexican food I've had in Flagstaff and possibly all of Arizona. The portions are large and the quality is excellent, and the staff is friendly. I've spent months in Mexico and years in south Texas, I know... More

Sorry we picked this off Trip Advisor's list. I'm from deep South Tx; my hubby & 3 others from Mx. Headed back to Tx from a road trip to the Gr.Canyon, we were all dissapointed with our meals. They shouldn't call this "Mexican" food. However, the locals seem to like it. (Utah has real Mx Food btw--Coyote Charro).
