“Bad New Mexican food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

I lived in ABQ for four years and the worst place there is better than this. I thought the red tasted burnt and strange and the green was unpleasant.

“Good food, hard to find location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Order the surf and turf. Excellent steak and the shrimp were fresh not frozen. I understand why this place is always standing room only. It is worth the effort to find the restaurant. There is no signage on the building, it is between a grocery store and a hardware store.

“Arguably, the best restaurant in Greater Phoenix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

You will have to search for it....you may have to wait for a seat...but the rewards will be great! This is arguably, the best restaurant in the Greater Phoenix area. Only so because the owner has two more outstanding eateries a half mile up the street. While both are excellent, I can't give up Dick's Hideaway. It is a very cozy little hole-in-the-wall that has bar seating for around a dozen. Add a few small tables behind and a private room that opens to general seating when not booked for an event.

On any given night you'll have the option of five fresh fish, all offered like you have never seen before. The steaks are awesome. The bacon-wrapped shrimp...to die for! How about New Mexico sausages and a potato stuffed green chili? Fish tacos anyone??? Breakfast is amazing. Try a spicy Bloody Mary with a sidecar beer. It will go great with eggs on your Green Chili Meatloaf.........

The food is outstanding, but you couldn't have it without the competent and friendly staff.
This is the cream of the crop, every one a consumate professional. Most of them have been staffers for years.

Bottom line.......breakfast, lunch, dinner or late night: this is THE place!

“Awesome Mexican Food (for Breakfast!)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We stopped in before our flight out of PHX. It is a hard to find place that a friend told me about. There is no sign on the door or building. It is right next to a grocery store with wood framed, glass door that says "Unattended children will be given espresso and a free kitten".

It is a very small location with a bar and some high top tables. Upon entering, the smells are amazing, decor awesome, signs humorous, and music great.

I had the Carne Adovada & Eggs for breakfast. The carne was so yummy. The beans great. Tortilla fresh. Even the potatoes were seasoned great.

A great experience, great service, and great food. Highly recommend!

“They don't deserve customers”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We heard this place was good, but hard to find. Its incredibly hard to find. I was standing right in front of it and still didn't know it was there. After entering and trying to find something suitable for our kids to eat (very very spicy food), it's clear they don't want to be found. The waitor/bartender was less than helpful - like we were putting him out asking questions about the food. We asked for some alterations (to prepare a shrimp dish without the shrimp) and were told if we wanted something different, we should order something different. It's incredibly small and dark. We left and went someplace else. The server was an unhelpful, arrogant jerk.
