“It is what it is”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012 via mobile

Roadside, fast service with authentic Mexican food. Very large menu with rice/beans combos. The #6 combo with fried chicken taco and spicy enchilada a filling and delicious lunch choice. Fountain sodas with refills. Paper and plastic. Inside and outside seating in what seemed like an old drive in. Located across the street from Wendy's.

“Take out or sit down authentic Mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

Always love the food - nothing fancy, but good. I've lived on the border and know how good Mexican food can be. Alfonso's rates among the best for fast Mexican food, cleanliness and service. Could use a little more decorating and attention to interior detail, but the food is always good.

“Worst Mexican food EVER!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

This place has the reputation for being the best in mexican dining in Payson....WRONG!!!. The place is filthy dirty, The bathrooms were out of order ( just remember the cooks handling your food ) And the food was cold when we got it. Payson people must be used to settling for crap service and food with a dirty atmoshere cause thats all you get by going here.

“Best Mex in Payson area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2011

If you want great mexican food at VERY reasonable prices, this i the place. We order on the phone and it is ready when we get there - plus we get to go to the head of the line and the line can be long at dinner time, especially on the weekends. Nothing fancy about the dining area but does have eating outside. No booze. Take it home and have a margarita. All freshly prepared and have never hear of anyone getting sick after eating here(like some other Payson mexican restaurants). This is the only place we go for mexican food in Payson. Carna Asada tacos and chile verde are our favorites.
