I ate three meals at this restaurant while staying at the attached Scottsdale Inn. It was the best part of my stay. It's a very nice setting with good food and good service. There is an outdoor patio and a bar.

Usually not too busy during happy hour, but always friendly (even with a messy baby dropping food). We love the service, food, drinks and friendly atmosphere. Try any of the "Papi recommended" items - you won't be disappointed.

We've had lots of fun and good food and drinks here. Not a shi-shi place at all. But if you're looking for a place to have fun with good drinks and Mexican food (actually Southwestern USA version of Mexican), this is it.
