Hello folks. We, my friends and I, were very road weary after driving for days in the worst heat ever. . . 117 F in the shade . . . Arizona, pshaw . . . but that's another review. We got rooms at the Motel 6 in Nogales and just didn't want to wander around looking for a place to... More

We have been here a few times now, food is average, service is average, place could be cleaner. Quick service if you are in a hurry.

Stopped in for Huevous Rancheros, really good. Husband had his with chorizo, liked it alot. They had a sign up for a buffet for $8.99, was there to early for it though. Salsa & tortillas delicious! Not huge portions, but enough to fill you up.

The gut trucks around Nogales have far better food than going to this place. The guy working there was nice and friendly but the food was not anything special.

We had about 30 minutes for dinner because of some commitments, and our hotel recommended Exquisito (down the road) - boy were we happily surprised! The food was fantastic. Don't go if you want a fancy sit-down restaurant but do go if you want fresh, delicious food.

The staff couldn't have been more friendly. The food was outstanding. I had a chili relleno burrito. It was two chilies rellenos wrapped in a thin flour tortilla...delicious. My wife had a birria taquito and a tostada. With my refried beans, our bill was $11. Oh, the chips and salsa were fresh and exquisite.

Exquisito didn't have a positive reputation after some health reviews. With that said, I would never look that way however recently I've been eyeing that it's always packed with diners so I said what the heck let's try this! Was going thru drive thru but that's no longer an option. Parked and went inside for something to go. Warm welcome... More

We got here late one night, tired and hungry. Although they were to close 10 minutes after we arrived they welcomed us warmly and we ate a full leisurely meal, wonderful as always, with no pressure to hurry up so they could close. Their lunch buffet is not to be missed, inexpensive and really good. Not much decor (other than... More
