Great curbside pick up. We ordered the family tamales on line and food ready in 20 minutes. Everything was so delicious and the quantity was more than enough. All the food was neatly packed in disposable paper cartons. I highly recommend this long established Tucson...original family owned business Congratulations to them for staying strong through the storm.More

Excellent in every way! We sat outside on the large patio with our dog. The shades out there blocked the wind and that was nice. Our server was super friendly and accommodating. We really liked her. The food was fantastic. I ordered steak tacos thinking...they wouldn't be very big but they were large and filled with lots of steak and fresh ingredients. They came with rice and beans. The salsa and chips were better than most. We arrived during their happy hour which offered 1/2 off some appetizers and drinks. The prices were great! Inside the restaurant there was a gorgeous mural of women dancing. I was so impressed by it that I took pictures.More

This is the BEST Mexican food we’ve ever eaten. When we’re in Tucson we eat there several times each visit. I would’ve given it 5 stars if it weren’t for the slow and inattentive service, especially if you sit outside. The servers are very friendly....We’ve gone in before and the two Hostess’s were too busy gabbing with the wait staff to seat us. We’ll keep going back because the food is great, but would really love to see the service improve.More

The food was wonderful and the place was beautifully decorated. But we had to wait an hour and it seemed like the staff were somewhat disorganized and inefficient. It was busy and people were coming in and out almost constantly. My advice? Get a reservation...more than a day in advance!More

On a busy night eight of us had a great time. All the meals were served fast and were tasty. We recommend this restaurant.

Wife and I tried this place for lunch. Service was good and the food arrived in a reasonable time but mine just wasn't any good. Rice and beans were OK but the pork burrito was bland and way, I mean, way too salty. I could...only down about half of it before tossing the rest. Our server asked and I let her know. She didn't do anything though. Lot's of good Mexican food around here but this one is a fail.More

Several El Charros in Tucson...but not the typical Sonoran flavors. Decent service and nice but cheesy American environment. While revered in southern Arizona for decades, there are many better in Tucson.

We were in town for a conference. The three of us are foodies with a great deal of experience with Mexican food. We found this place based upon a recommendation from the hotel. Service and food was excellent. The portions are huge. The menu is...extensive. the have their own beer. we got a combination plate which was more than enough food. We passed on dessert because we were so full. Laura was our server and she was terrific. The manager came over to welcome us. Great atmosphere. Wonderful decorations. Fun place to be.More

The G burro was vegetarian and super good. The flavor was super and very filling. Be ready to take home leftovers. The patio was wonderful and provides afternoon/evening shade.
