If your life is like a pinata, filled with nothing but broken dreams, then Alfonso's is the perfect pick-me-up. Whenever I visit Payson, Alfonso's is always my first stop. Nothing fancy just good food. I've been hitting this place up for years and love the breakfast burritos the best. I have had just about everything on the menu and don't... More

I love their carne asada with the red sauce from the salsa bar. My family likes the bean and cheese burritos. Either way, they have some of the best tortillas around.

This place looks like an old time (circa 1950s drive in) and long ago it actually was Pedro Wong's Mexican Chinese Drive-In. Now, it is strictly Mexican. Great food, reasonable portions and a fine selection of salsas. A great value.

On our way back from Chinle to Phoenix, we stopped at Payson for gas and lunch. My brother knew exactly where to take us. Alfonso’s is a no nonsense great Mexican Food place. Not much of décor or ambiance, very basic but the food is delicious. The number of customers says it all. One can sit and eat or take... More

This is an award winning Mexican restaurant, with some indoor and outdoor seating. Most people here in Payson use it for take-out. Great variety of dishes, prepared by local Mexican chefs. It is a local favorite, and the prices are great. You can't miss if you try this place.

Alfonso is located in Payson. A small un-prepossessing place, this family restaurant serves up the most amazing burritos that one can imagine. Large thick and full of flavour and bursting with goodness all it takes is one burrito to fill your stomach and oh yes – they also have Mexican coke. This place is very popular as one could see...

You can tell if the food Mexican restaurant is good by how there beans taste and the beans here at Alfonso's are excellent. My husband and I split a chorizo, egg, and potato burrito with a side of beans. Very filling. One burrito is enough for two people. The salsas in the salsa bar are very flavorful too. I will...

I travel to Payson several times per year and this is my go-to Mexican food restaurant if I am having a craving for cheese enchiladas. I don't care for lettuce on my enchiladas and I ask to substitute onions (yum!) and they are always accommodating.
