The restaurant is located inside the Scottsdale Fashion Square. It is right around the corner of the Paradise Bakery in the food court. It is conveniently located in the center of the best shopping in the State of Arizona. You have the option of sitting in the dining room, bar or a patio in the mall. We chose the dining... More

In town on business, and wanted Mexican food after a day of meetings, and hiking up the "A" Hill. Ate outside on the patio. Service was good (little bit slow on the drinks), and the food was good. Portions were good, not too filling.

Very friendly staff make you feel right at home. A nice restaurant with delicious cornbread - best I've ever had… Our party of five enjoyed our meal and I truly loved the steak fajitas - I had to take some home and made spiced up steak and eggs with the leftovers :-) The restaurant offers a nice atmosphere, good presentation...

I ate dinner here with a coworker. It's a cool restaurant in a great location. It was extremely busy in here but we did get seated quickly. Both my coworker and myself got fajitas- neither of us were overly impressed with them. Not bad, but nothing special. The service was ok but I did spend a fair amount of time... More

Passable Mexican food in an Americanized vein. Burger was below average. Salsa with the chips might pass for a pasta sauce. Red chile more like a BBQ sauce. Prices are moderate, portions are average. Fajitas were good.

Nothing spectacular. Good service. I do highly recommend the complimentary cornbread. Tasty!! The mexican dishes have a unique flavor which is more New Mexico in origin. Good service. Good place for lunch but nothing special.

Went here for dinner with business friends. It was well lit and had a nice atmosphere. We didn't get any cornbread; after reading reviews I am disappointed. Got the shrimp bites for appetizer. They were ok. Got Baja tacos for dinner. Those were ok too, seemed dry. Would have liked more lime or sauce. Overall not in love with the... More

I didn't get to try any appetizers or other courses, but the mushroom enchiladas were good. Not earth shattering, but nice. The portion size was a little smaller than I expected.

I was here for dinner two days in a row and was a good decision. Good margaritas and excellent Mexican food. I would not necessarily recommend the steaks though.
