The ever evolving restaurant that has changed ownership the 12 Years we have frequent it with my family and as you might have guessed the menudo is one of the reasons we keep going back, it's your typical Phoenix area "Mexican" food restaurant with the combo meals that include enchiladas, hard shell tacos with shredded meat and lots of cheese....

One of the oldest and best Mexican resturants in the West Valley. Large menu with great salsa and choice of beverages. Highly recommended.

This is a great little mom and pop place that we dropped by for dinner. I had heard good things about it and decided to try it out. I had the Chicken Chimichanga with a side of rice and beans. They also served chips and a house made salsa. I ordered a margarita. To start, the margarita was excellent. As... More

The food is always fantastic. The enchilada sauce is the best I have ever had. I could drink it!! Food is consistent between locations and visits. Portions are generous. Prices between $7 and $13. One of my favorite local places.

Lunch visit on a Sunday. Salsa w/chips were very good. Tried the Combo plate with chicken enchilada, beef taco, beef flauta. All were tasty with the flauta being my unexpected favorite. $2 upcharge for the chicken vs cheese enchilada (which they did not mention). Service was adequate. Beer was just cooler than warm. No A/C but lots of fans and... More

My uncle's crispy tacos were good, and my aunt enjoyed her chile relleno, though she was surprised to see seeds in it. My carnitas (shredded pork) was very dry, as if it had been in the hopper for a while. Desserts were yummy; service was excellent! Just nothing extraordinary about the food.

Great Mexican restaurant, very good food. The salsa is a bit to hot and there is no alternative or mild version.

This restaurant has been here a long time and is a local favorite. The food is authentic Mexican. I especially love the corn tamales, quacamole and fajitas.

Looks like a bit if a hole in the wall from the outside, but that's usually where you find the best Mexican and this was the case. The place was very, very clean and our server Luis was a sweetheart. The beer was super cold and the food flavorful and plentiful. And very reasonably priced. We will definitely be back.
