“Solid Choice for Mexican Food in Sedona”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We enjoyed dinner here last week. They had our reservation for an outdoor table, weather permitting. The outdoor patio is very pleasant. The service was good. Good chips and tasty salsa with some kick. Nice margaritas (traditional with lime juice only and prickly pear). Our waitress talked me out of fish tacos; I always appreciate when a server steers you away from something that they don't like. Had the chile relleno instead, which was good. Kids enjoyed their chicken tacos and enchilada/taco combo. My wife liked her chicken burrito served enchilada style with green chile. The fried ice cream was a hit with the kids for dessert. Definitely a good spot for dinner in Sedona.

“Great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Food is good but service was better..... never saw my water glass less than 1/2 full. The patio is very comfortable so if he weather is nice enjoy.

“A decent meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

The food and service were good, however, after the meal settled for a while it felt like I had a rock sitting in the pit of my stomach. To be fair though, I rarely eat out except when away from home and am used to eating home cooked organic meals, so its not terribly unusual for restaurant meals to make me feel this way. That said, the food was good enough that I would try it again.

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We've been each time we've visited over past few years and it is always good. We like their Margaritas and salsa which is my standard test!

“Good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

While shopping, we decided to go to this Mexican restaurant for lunch. The food was good, although very crowded. My husband enjoyed his chicken chimichonga. While I enjoyed their combo plate, chicken tostado with cheese enchilada.

The atmosphere was typical Mexican restaurant style, nice, fun. Lunch was good, however seeing that it's in Sedona, be prepared to pay a lot, even for lunch.
