I'm from Arizona and have a particular taste in Mexican food. This place is the closest thing to the same Mexican food I grew up eating. The service is great! It's always busy but never had to wait more than 10 minutes. I have also...More

We were hopeful, but when our skinny carne Asade tacos arrived 30 minutes after ordering cold and flavorless we were disappointed. We nibbled on a few pieces of meat to hold us over. We then packed up the meat for our dog!

We hadn't been there since it was "Tequilas", but went with friends. I didn't notice much change. That is, lots of good options, including some platters that aren't typical at most area mexican restaurants.
