The restuarant was clean . The service was above average but when a problem arrose the response time was very slow. I had ordered the Carnitas dinner the meat looked and tasetd like a typical pulled prok except a TON of Onions it looked more like an onion salad garnished with pulled pork. Had they put the meat in a fryer or on the flat top to give it the carnitas crisp and tast it would have more to the typical Mexuan version. The enchiladas were below average the tortillas were not even heated properly prior to assembly which showed when eaten. They need to pay more attention to the final product. i don't think they have a quality assurance program set in place so the customer gets what he/she is paying for.

Ate dinner here with my family, while traveling in phoenix. Loved the food, and the outside area. Shared a two person margarita, which would have served four people!! No joke!! Huge!! The bean dip and chips are delicious.

The food is not very good. Chips and salsa are good. I recommend you leave immediately after that.

We just moved to Awhatukee a few months back. We really need to find a reasonably good, affordable Mexican restaurant. This place isn't it. Won't be back.

Middle of the road Mexican. Best part of dinner was the sopapia for dessert. Margarita was good but too much ice.

They are little pricey for Mexican food but are not traditional Mexican. I had the Carlsbad stuffed chicken breast (it is stuffed with fajita veggies and topped with a creamy and slightly spicy sauce and cheese). It was absolutely delicious. Jeff had carne adobada and I didn't like it as much but he did. The Margaritas are large and tasty, and we will eat there again. Portions were large and we took some home.
