Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Lots of food on the menu, too. We enjoyed several entrees that came piping hot and tasty. Arrived around 5:00 pm on a Sunday night. Was busy but we were taken quickly to our table. Wait staff was pleasant and helpful but, a bit slow that is, they were slow at refilling our ice... More

We were on our way to the re-opening of our favorite mexican restaurant and found it closed, so we went back to a place we had not been in years. It was very good and since it was happy hour the margaritas were a great buy

Had Mexican food with friends while in Apache Junction. Good food, fast service. Very nice owner came to our table, and greeted us. Will certainly go back when we visit again.

We're down here for a couple weeks and wanted to go somewhere for Mexican food, margarita and to watch the race. The atmosphere was nice, margaritas were good but the good was just ok. Salsa was disappointing.

We went there for first time Mon. 09/26/16 for lunch with friends. They both ordered combos with enchiladas, and tacos. They were very pleased with their food... I ordered a Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad and it was just okay, my husband ordered a taco salad again just okay, but he also ordered a Pork Green Chili Tamale that was delicious.... More

I had the Seafood Enchilada, on a recommendation from a friend who I was dining with that night. Very yummy. Very filling. And a massive margarita of course. Can still taste it now. The decor is appropriate to the style of restaurant. The staff were cordial and helpful. Would definitely go there again, were I to visit Apache Junction. Recommended.

Every meal we've had here has been great; spinach enchiladas (don't have to have the chicken); great tacos, can't think of a dish we didn't like.
