My wife and I tried out this restaurant and found the food to be good. We would come back again when we next visit Lake Havasu.

Arrived in Lake Havasu City and wanting lunch, a group of places in one location to choose from. This place was our choice. meal was good and staff pleasant and quick. Outdoor seating very popular as great view to be had. Taco Salad was tasty along with the nachos.

This restaurant has a very nice atmosphere. It's getting up there in price for mexican food, but there are some specialty items I really like. You can eat inside, or outside. Great location near the London Bridge. Part of the Shugrue family chain. I like all of their restaurants.

We went here for lunch. Like I read earlier, the Staff was very friendly but everything seemed disorganized. We enjoyed the food and the portions were large, but there wasn't anything that stood out to us above anywhere else. I had the Carne Asada with grilled shrimp on the side. The shrimp was good and cooked just right and the... More

Food was excellent. Sitting on patio around 3:00 was very nice. Staff was a little unorganized, maybe it was the change of shift. But we enjoyed our meal. Tables close together so you hear all the conversations - and children protesting - nearby.

Stopper here for a late lunch after looking at several other optional places to re-stoke the power plant. We were seated on the outside patio where we could look over London Bridge, Lake Havasu and the mountains beyond. Our server was terrific and accommodated our special requests (yeah, we can be a pain) to leave out certain ingredients and replace... More

I had read the mixed reviews for the restaurant and, since I was hungry for Mexican food, decided to take a chance. Sorry I did. Yes, the servings were quite large but also tasteless. Yes, tasteless! No rich cheesy flavor. No chili bite. No cilantro pizazz. Seriously--nothing! And very bad service. Waiter brought the food and vanished. Didn't offer drink... More

I ordered one of the combo plates that had 1 pork tamale, a crispy taco (chicken or beef) and rice and beans. The taco was good, but the tamale was under-done so that the masa (outer coating) was raw and gooey. The refried beans were very cumin (a spice) heavy and not to my taste. Everything was covered in a... More
