The best hands down chili rellano I have ever had. Beans are yummy and so is the rice. My son had a chimichanga and it was insane! Great service too. I haven't been here since high school and am now a regular.

We had a great meal at this restaurant while we were visiting Phoenix. Our niece lives close by and we decided to try it out. Our service was great and so was the food. It was a large restaurant with plenty of seating.
