This was a small family get together and none of us had been here before. The prices were extremely reasonable and the portions large. I was excited to see my favorite, flat enchiladas, on the menu as many Mexican restaurants do not offer them. We had two different kinds of chimichangas, green corn tamales and flat enchiladas. They all came... More

We were with a party of 3. All had Mexican food. I had shrimp chile rellanos. They were excellent with an egg batter covering chilies stuffed with delicious shrimp. The flat enchiladas had a thick corn patty covered with delicious toppings. Fajitas were what you would expect with fresh onions and peppers cooked perfectly. Drinks were affordable and the price...

It was pretty busy when we arrived but luckily we were seated promptly. The menu is extensive but we made our choices after viewing what others at nearby tables had ordered. Two had the special of the day which was fish soup (on Fridays) and two shared a quesadilla which was huge and very good as were the chips and... More

Servers were friendly and the food was excellent!! The atmosphere was rustic, cozy & friendly. I can't say enough about the delicious food, from the chips and dip to the steak & eggs . Food tastes just like it came out of grandma's kitchen (homemade)!! Every time we return to Tucson we stop to eat & savor the delicious food.

We've been here numerous times, as recently as last night. We've had parties as small as three and as large as 20 people, and the service has always been excellent. The chips and salsa are really good and they don't mind bringing refills. The food is flavorful, just the right temperature, and has the right spicy kick that you'd expect... More

We found this spot just driving near the airport and wanted to avoid the usual chains. Very nice cowboy atmosphere with excellent service and a broad menu for adults and kids. I never expect to find much in the way of soups in these places, but the daily chicken and rice offering was maybe the best I've ever had.

This is a nice little place not far from the Tohono O'Odham Swap Meet. We stopped for lunch on a Saturday and found the place welcoming, crowded, a bit old and outdated, but with a nice vibe and good service. The tamales were truly excellent and the waitress a is they were known for them and had them every day... More

I have visited for breakfast on several occasions and breakfast is always excellent. Customer service is good. Food actually tastes like it's homemade not like other breakfast spots in town.

There seem to be a lot of local regulars here, and they have a large "cowboy" bar in one wing of the building. We had carne seca with chimichurri. That was good. They also serve good guacamole. The service was pleasant, and you are not rushed to finish and leave, which is always a good policy.
