love this place wanted to go back again the next night but figured we needed to try another restaurant since only in town for 3 nights. Great food and atmosphere. Very busy so expect to wait but its worth it.

We ate dinner here after spending the day touring the red rock sights. The food was outstanding. They offer interesting and delicious variations of traditional Mexican food like tacos and enchiladas. The wait staff was sharp, too.

A very busy place, but our waiter was very attentive & personable. The food was brought in a very timely manner. Large portions that we managed to consume because it all was very authentic.The margarita s are a bit pricey.

The food was super good. We had fajitas and chiles rellenos. The service was good, and we had a great view. We would definitely go back if we are ever out there again.

Our server helped us pick a mix of foods; our table shared and none of the plates served disappointed. My favorite was their carnitas, fantastic. But we had steak fajitas, carnes special and mole chicken enchiladas...none disappointed. Our server was great and attentive.

I didn't order it but saw it served, looked like everything but the kitchen sink. I believe you can pick your protein either beef or chicken. It was piled high.

Oops, sorry this was posted so long ago. Happy Hour in bar ONLY but children are allowed in bar area at the tables, just not up at the actual bar itself.
