I doubt you will be sorry if you stop and have lunch or dinner here. It is authentic Mexican, and just what I crave. Beautiful margaritas.

The sign says "Mexican Food" and people all have their opinions on what "Authentic Mexican Food" is, so I won't debate that. It's probably not. But, this restaurant has been around so long, and expanded so many times because the food is very fresh, the cocktails are perfect for a hot day in the desert, and the employees are all... More

Kingman, Arizona is located in a historic part of famed Route 66. While Mr. D's 60's diner is the most well known, this restaurant is a hidden gem. After being seated, generous portion of chips and 2 types of salsa. One mild and one with a slight bite. A side of beans for your chips accompanies the salsas. The menu... More

Always busy for a reason. Great fresh chips with hot and mild salsa--both very fresh and great tasting--and refried beans on the table. We keep planning on trying different entrées but can't seem to get past the incredible Spinach Enchiladas and New Mexico Eggs. Large portions and fast friendly service.

We were passing through Kingman, Arizona, and I wanted some beef enchiladas for lunch. I stopped at this place because it had a parking space out front, and I'm glad I did. The nice waitress handed me a bunch of folders and papers that turned out to be their menu, then brought us chips and three or four little bowls... More
