Showed up to try the place, but name on a list. Said it was 30 minute wait. They won't give you an electronic device to page you or send you a text. We wandered around the outdoor seating area.15 min later we walked in to...sit inside. Never called us. We finally asked and the snippy girl said She called us 15 minutes ago. We certainly never heard her. She put us at the bottom of the list... again. Blaming us for the issue. Great Service from this place. I find the attitude of someone I'm purchasing crazy. I can get treated like crap anywhere. GoneMore

There were four of us and none of us Enjoyed our meal. The chili verde dinner had a scorched flavor, the combination plate came with food that looked like it was purchased at Sams club and the chili rejenos were so breaded and tasteless. The...refried beans were like a bean paste. I am not sure why this restaurant is open but we sure will not go back.More

Mixed reviews... went with some buddies here during COVID, had to wait about 1/2 hour to get seated, no big deal. They allowed us to wait by the bar and have a beer. We were not fans of the chips or the salsa, thought the...chips tasted like cardboard. I had the mixed fajitas and everything tasted great, one buddy had enchiladas and he said his was excellent. The third buddy is the mixed review portion. He ordered 2 soft shell beef tacos, and for starters it showed up as 2 hard shell tacos. The tacos were very blah and had little to no flavor. If we are in the area we will probably go again but won’t have the tacos...More

Not the best for combination meals but ordering a la cart items is about same price as ordering as a combination plate. Their salsa is good and you can order a hotter green sauce for chips which is really good. Also for tacos you have...a choice of chopped meat or ground meat beef. Of course can also have chicken also. Both either folded or rolled.More

I was in town for a meeting and, as often happens, I was hungry. Right near my hotel was this place and I am addicted to Mexican food! Give me guacamole and chips and I am in heaven! The restaurant is a legendary local haunt....I'd never heard of it, but, "location location & Mexican food" instant "I WANT THAT! I enjoyed a huge carne asada burrito, smothered in red sauce and served with a side of sour cream. To be honest, the burrito was bigger than my stomach! The service was great, the staff was friendly and even with limited seating rules there was no wait for a table. The burrito was delicious and the costs were very reasonable.More

Busy place and happy wait staff. Fresh food prepared but the queues were insane when we were there though.

Another of our favorites when passing through Yuma AZ. Been in town for a long time although Is a different location from our first few years of visiting. Great killer nachos. Very simple round corn chips with cheese and a slice of jalapeño added. Use...to have contests to see who could eat the most. I ordered the 1946 chimichanga, my wife ordered the beef enchiladas while our friend ordered a beef burrito enchilada style. Ale were great and the portion size is giant. None of us could finish everything. You are served chips and salsa when you sit down. My wife and I ordered margaritas which were very good. A great visit. So when passing through Yuma, get off I-8 at 16th street and stop in. Very good food.More

Drive up service was great!! The nachos were pitiful with more lettuce than anything...HUGE disappointment!! The chimichangas were full of shredded beef. They were so good. Jalapeno poppers were not there somehow I believe I got fried cheese curds because they were very tiny and...sweet. Not sure about returning.More
