“great local chain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Great local chain of tex-mex. We usually go about once and month sit in the bar. Really good chips and salsa. Good margs...the "white death" is my favorite. It can get crowded as its a favorite around here.

“Tasty Mexican near Phoenix”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Good, home style mexican food. Restaurant quite crowded on a Tuesday night. Waited at the bar, good selection of draft beers and Tequillas. Great chips and salsa; buddies had an enchilada special, while I had a spicy chimichanga. Service was good, price was right.

“Good food, great service and very busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

I've been here a few times now. And while its your pretty standard tex-mex fare this place stands out for a few reasons. Judging by all the pictures on the wall, a lot of present and past local, minor ands not celebrities have been there. This means there is interesting pictures everywhere to look at while you wait for a table, and wait I have everytime I've been. The service is really top notch, far better than any of the other local places (touristy or not). Everyone from hostess to wait staff to bus staff is quick, attentive and courteous.

One warning; Tuesday night has a senior citizen special and the place is going to be packed. We waited 20min to get a table and when we left the wait looked to be almost as long. Tables to get turned over quickly however.

Oh did mention freshly fried chips!

“Try The Mexican Pizza with Chicken”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Old style Mexican Restaurant atmosphere (adobe and low light). Traditional Mex food very good. Mexican Pizza with shredded chicken in appetizer section one of the best things I ever put in my mouth. Crust is pastry-like. Very crowded every night. Separate bar waiting list for dining moves much faster and has table seating in bar. Good food price specials each night.

“Great Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The red or green chili burros are fantastic. The cheese crisp is very good, the cheese enchilada is my favorite and the taco and tostada are great too.
Tuesday night Senior night....buy one get one free is a nice promotion if you are in the area on a Tuesday.
Have never been dissapointed here and have been here many times
