We were really disappointed after having a great day on the square with the reenactments. Chicken Fajitas were made with chicken thigh meat. No taste. Worst tamales and enchiladas my husband ever had. We should've ran when we saw Mexican and Italian on the sign. Don't go here...

The service was excellent and friendly. I had a frozen strawberry margarita but it didn't have much taste. Our queso fundito app was amazing. I had cheese enchiladas and they were solid, not melted. It had a little rice and small portion of beans. One of my sons had a very large plain chicken quesadilla he liked a lot but... More

Just stopped in for a prickly pear margarita. Delicious. But was required to buy chips and salsa even though we just wanted a mid afternoon drink.

What a find! I had a plain burger that was so tasty I could've eaten two. No French fries but warm kettle chips were delicious. My husband had bolognese. I also had two of the biggest margaritas I've ever seen. Great value and service too.

We had a lovely lunch and staff were very friendly, nice place to have a meal seating inside or outside. You can have Italian or Mexican food. It is Licensed and pronto service. Open Thursday till Sunday from 11 till 7pm. Reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

Thought it was weird having a little bit of Italian and Mexican...but it worked. My wife enjoyed the cactus flower (prickly pear) margaritas. I enjoyed the spicy mango margaritas and the kids loved dessert & the desert murals. We sat outside and enjoyed the great weather. Definitely return the next time we visit Tombstone.
