“Best Mexican food EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Living in Phoenix we have a lot of Mexican restaurants to choose from. What a surprise to find that the best Mexican food meal we ever had would be found in Sierra Vista. The menu has the typical selections but the freshness of the food and complexity of the flavors can't be surpassed. The chips and salsa were outstanding too. We visited on a very busy Friday night but we were seated within about 10 minutes. A mariachi band kept us entertained as we savored every bite of our meal. Can't wait to go back!

“Good, but no imagination”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

It may be the best Mexican restaurant in town, but the fare is common and uninspired. It is consistent,,,consistenly common and plain.

“I agree with "Sodium Coma" !!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

We had dinner there this week . As was previously stated the food was very salty . I left half of my dinner uneaten because of the salt content . My husband agreed with me , his food had too much salt too & he said every thing on his plate had the same flavor . This is NOT authentic Mexican food . Maybe Tex Mex .

“We were not disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014 via mobile

Arriving late (2pm) for lunch to an empty front parking lot we became a little apprehensive about our choice. Once inside we were surprised at the number of people eating and still arriving. Mostly locals from what we could tell, another good sign. The decor is pleasant, and our welcome was friendly. All the food was great, plates hot, portions generous and prices on the luncheon menu very reasonable. Our servers were very friendly, patient, and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, can confidently recommend the place and definitely will return when back in town.
