I've been at a conference in Fountain Hills this year, which has been catered by Sofrita. They have served breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon and potatoes with extras that was delicious. The lunch both days were amazing and I can't wait to bring my family to the restaurant sometime for dinner. I've enjoyed the baked chicken, veggies, orzo, pasta,... More

For the aftermath of your morning morning stroll try this for breakfast or lunch. Sit outside if the sun is not overbearing and your dog is welcome. Pleasant place to watch the morning strollers. Bacon and eggs for breakfast and maybe the dog will get a snack of bacon from your server.

A local contact suggested we have a late lunch here, which we all enjoyed. Green pork soft tacos were irresistible, so all three of us ordered them. They were tasty, imaginative, and filling, with plenty of pork, veggies, green sauce on the side, and a sprinkling of pepitas. Fresh iced tea and house-made lemonade were terrific. All the surfaces inside... More

I've eaten here a few times. I can't think of anything that was "to die for" as far as the food is concerned. The mango mojito or maybe it's a mango margarita is freaking amazing though and I would come back just for that.

My coworkers and I met here the other evening to enjoy cocktails and tapas. Everything was delicious and service was great. We are planning to return to try other items on the menu that we just did not have room for. My favorite so far was the shrimp taco. Even the dessert was awesome! Great restaurant and worth the trip!

This little place was an unexpected find- it's tiny indoor seating area was packed and everyone's food looked amazing. It's not the usual Mexican place - no free chips and salsa - but the tacos are WOW!!! We got the ropas tacos, which is shredded beef - presentation was trendy, and the taco fillings were too - the fried potatoes... More

Had breakfast here and the huevos rancheros and the chilaquillas were excellent. Great outdoor seating. The margaritas are excellent and they have a great happy hour.

Everything is fresh, very tasty. Shrimp tacos, bruschetta boards are delicious. Don't forget the margaritas - the best.

Don't be fooled by the bruschetta board title. It sounds like small baguettes but it's actually full size slices of bakery bread loaded with toppings. Two of us shared the luncheon board and guacamole, which was awesome, and were stuffed. Will definitely return. I didn't rate them 5 because the server basically ignored us. A backup person kept saying "I"ll... More
