We have been here several times over the past few years. Our first visit was great, but each time we have gone back, we have been greatly disappointed both by the food and the service. The food was definitely missing something, had no flavor at...More

The casual setting can be deceiving but the food was very good. I'll admit it was a bit odd to be served good artisan bread with a fresh tomato/caper spread instead of the traditional chips/salsa but not a bad adjustment to make. I ordered the...More

One of my favorites in Phoenix... I try to come here every time I'm in town and I'm never disappointed. The only downside is that if you go at lunch time... expect it to be very busy. Oh.... don't forget to order the guacamole....absolutely terrific.

Great service, tasty food. Enchiladas taste like they should. I'm not as fond of the guac as others seem to be, but that aside, if you aren't sure where to go to eat, go here.

With 2 years residing in the Phoenix Area, one thing you can’t miss, is the extraordinary number of “Mexican”, “Tex-Mex” and/or “Southwestern” offerings there are – many not worth the trouble visiting! But, if you continue being adventurous, looking for that great place you can...More

You know it's going to be a good drink when the bartender is pouring out tequila for your margarita with his bottle arm above his head and his mixer arm below his belt. This unassuming venue has amazing food as well. The slow-cooked pork had...More
