“Nice outdoor patio!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

We were seated outside by the waterfall. Nice atmosphere. Staff friendly. Food choices good. Food quality was very delish. A little chilly when sun went down. Nice easy location to find. Prices a little steep. Overall nice to visit.

“Not wild about the place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The food was average. The service was okay but a bit slow. Not bad, but there are better options close by. Perhaps we caught them on an off day.

“Very good Mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

I always enjoy the Mexican food at El Encanto...and so convenient in Fountain Hills. Chips and salsa are always fresh and provided immediately upon arrival. The special seafood enchiladas I enjoyed on my last visit were excellent as well. Pollo Fundido is also one of my favorites. Service is good and the atmosphere authentic....great place to eat!

“A Little Over-priced, but not for FH”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Good Mexican food, but there are a lot of good Mexican restaurants. Just not in a Fountain Hills. Not many restaurants in FH.

“Best meal ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

We happened along this restaurant and were so pleased with the food and the service. They immediately brought us chips & 3 kinds of salsa when we sat down. We chatted with the waitress and she eagerly suggested her favourites, so we went for Pollo Fundido and we LOVED it. We should have taken some of it home in a doggy bag as the portions were plentiful, but we licked our plates clean! We tried 3 other restaurants while in the area, and decided to go back to El Encanto our last night because our first night was so memorable. We shared the chicken fajitas and enjoyed them as well. The service was stellar. Kept our water glasses full and even provided additional chips and salsa! Would highly recommend.
