I have been here several times through the years and it is always good and consistent. The chips are sooo good and they even have gluten free chips my friend has ordered ! Service always good as well.

A group of coworkers had lunch at Canyon Cafe and enjoyed it very much. The fried wontons are addictive! I wasn't very hungry so I only had chicken tortilla soup, but it was delicious. Coworkers had things from soup and salad to fajitas and all...More

Everything we had was AWESOME!! Lots of different kinds of chips and the salsa had great flavor! I personally had an enchilada and a carnitas with corn chowder...I enjoyed all of my meal and was so full I had to take some home with me...More

This is a great restaurant. Surprised it sits in the upscale mall. Everything from the complimentary chips to the entrees are very good. Drink prices are a little on the high side.

It's an upscale, casual place, the service has always been very good, and they have some good vegetarian options~ We go here every few months and it works out well to take other people with varied diets. Something for everyone!

Great margaritas but don’t expect to sit at bar and watch football, TV are “off “. Not sure if they don’t want you to stay to long or they don’t want to pay direct TV

I enjoyed the street tacos and I could choose the types I wanted to try. Service wasn't the greatest. Never offered more chips and salsa-which were excellent. Mixed types of chips.

Good Mexican restaurant in the mall. Great margaritas and the “limit 2” is super good and a nice oversized portion. Queso is great, guacamole is made table side and also delicious. Lots of great entrée choices and the pasta dishes are very good as are...More

The food was ok. The service was good. This was nothing spectacular. It was a bit too pricey. The tacos were good and I would recommend them, but you can find just as good for half the price in St Louis.
