Had dinner there on Sunday 11/13 w/ 3 other couples. Had a 3 choice combo plate. I'm from the east so I've come to know Italian cuisine but know very little about Mexican cuisine. All I can say is what I had was tasty & filling and didn't rob my wallet. Service was good although a couple extra stops by... More

Have eaten here while visiting 3 times now. Bean dip which also has cheese, onions, tomatoes was excellent--recommend it. We've had the fajitas as well as the specials--chicken pablano and chicken mole were outstanding. Also, if you order the specials make sure you get the soups--chicken tortilla and a pork/hominy/oregano/cabbage was super. We also went late one night, and Ben... More

I was in town visiting my daughter. While she was at work I decided to walk downtown and take myself out for lunch. I had always seen this restaurant from prior visits, but never stopped. It was advertising their fish tacos as a lunch special, so I thought I'd try it. For around $7, you could not beat the 3... More

We have been returning to this back alley restaurant for a few years now and know the owners quite well by now. He takes rare pride in preparing his food fresh every day, and the entrees show his level of dedication. We love to bring friends here.

Value: Hot and good frontera food. Familiar. Comfortable. Best chips in town. Lots of locals are very loyal. Just a couple of minutes out o downtown and worth it.

Authentic Mexican food at a very good price. Locals go here when they want great food they can afford.

The restaurant is a bit hard to find. I knew it was behind the Dinner Bell cafe but even going down the side, I was unsure if the door was correct as it also said Dinner Bell. I asked someone else coming in and they said I had found the right restaurant. The restaurant is on the smaller side with... More

Casa Alvarez has some of the best Mexican food in Prescott. Salsa is homemade and very good. they have shredded beef rather than ground beef for tacos and enchiladas and the taco salad is excellent. On the other hand, they are always understaffed. If you are comfortable waiting, it is probably worth the wait, but it will take longer than... More

After a disappointing experience at another Mexican restaurant in the area, Casa Alvarez was a complete 180 -- friendly and welcoming with delicious homestyle Mexican food and drinks. We got there at 4:45 and were glad we did, because not only were we not the only folks waiting, but within a short time the small venue was totally packed with... More

After we could not get a table at the more touristy restaurants in town we found this little gem right next to Granite Creek. It's located behind a coffee shop, so you really have to look for it. It's not fancy, it could be a place you find in Mexico. Service was friendly, wine and beer reasonably priced and the... More
