Don't let the flaking stucco exterior facing U.S. Highway 395 deter you; the food here was excellent and quite reasonable. HUGE platters made for a nice-sized dinner with enough left over for lunch the next day! The staff were very friendly and upbeat. The combination...More

Read the reviews and decided to give it a shot since it was rated # 2 in Alturas. Maybe with the name change (El Aguila Azul now) came new owners and management; I don't know. What a HUGE disappointment!!!! The server took our order, but...More
