“Great Food at Dirt Cheap Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Saw this place on a show on TV a few years ago and decided to try it the next time we were in Tucson. When we finally made it there, we were simply blow away by the food and the prices. My kids and I really loved the Sonoran Hot Dogs. My husband thought the Carne Asada tacos were amazing. In fact, we enjoyed the food so much we went for another round of food. As a family of four, we only spent $26 total for lunch. A week later and my husband is still raving about the tacos. This place will be a regular stop for us whenever we visit Tucson. Thank goodness my brother just moved there!

“Fresh and Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Very good for mexican fast food. Everything is cooked fresh. This is not fancy but it is worth the trip. The teachers at my school like to go there for lunch because it is inexpensive, quick, and delicious.

“Sonoran Hot Dogs - this is where it started”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

If you like to start with a hot dog wrapped in bacon and then cover it with more toppings that you never thought of , this is the place. Get the Sammy, with two dogs, so the condiments don't dominate. There's a nice mix of Mexican food, and sodas from Mexico, made with real sugar. There's not place like it!
