We love their chimichangas. Always fresh and crispy. Nice cozy little place at the end of Rose's shoppping center. Give 'em a try!

Alfonso's is located in the shopping area across from Calsonic Arena (Walking Horse Celebration Grounds). Although they are located in a strip mall shopping arrangement, they are located in an end location and provide sidewalk dining as well as inside. Good food and atmosphere when you're craving Mexican Food.

I have never had a bad meal from Alfonso's. It is definitely the best Mexican restaurant in town. The wait staff is great! You will probably even spot Alfonso if you go!

With the abundance of independent Latino establishments, it's hard to over look the average quality of the product being served. It was guarded to an older established client based and not being true to the great taste of the Hispanic food. It was average and okay. Tasted fine but not dynamic like so many others that surround it !

The service was fast and the staff was very friendly. Thought the food was better than most Mexican Restaurants in the area. Biggest drawback is very limited seating. Have always heard they have long waits at prime eating times. We went about 9 on Friday night and had no wait and there was still a good crowd there for that... More

My co-workers and I eat at Alfonso's every Friday for lunch. Good food and even better price. Typical Mexican menu but many items include broccoli, carrots and cauliflower so if you want carb friendly food, this is a plus. Never had anything off the menu that was not tasty. Owner has also opened a location in Murfreesboro, TN. Same menu... More
