Decor was fun. Unfortunately, the food was not good. We had salsa trios, vegetable rellenos, taco platter, & queso fundido. We sent our first queso back - was cold. Second one not better. Skip this restaurant. Everything was below average.

Really enjoyed our meals and the service was great. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the chef has included some amazing spices/flavors in his dishes. The carnitas taco is delicious.

We had a lovely stop at Kachina Catina. Sat outside in the shade and relaxed. The margaritas were yummy and the guac delish. The service was good, too. But, please, how do you screw up a taco? We ordered their roasted chicken tacos from the...hh menu and they were terrible ... dry, bland, cold tortillas, and just terrible. It’s tough to screw up a taco but they managed to do it. Stop for drinks and chips and guac but don’t bother with the taco menu.More

Tacos on fry bread can’t be beat. We had both the wagu beef and the shredded chicken. Sides were typical Mexican fare. But the pitcher of white sangria put it over the top. We got in on a busy night, but reservations are probably smart.

I came here for a beer and a quick bite before I started my night. I sat at the bar for some time while the bartender played on her phone. I ordered the Wagyu carne asada taco: cojita cheese, cilantro, avocado salsa on fry bread....The meat was a bit tough but the flavors and textures were good. The fry bread is fantastic!More

A clean and friendly atmosphere! Diego was wonderful and gave great recommendations on what to eat. I would of liked there to be a few more options on the menu,especially for room service. I was very happy with the food and the service.
