My husband and I ate here recently as a friend of ours raves about it. I'm honestly wondering what kind of palate our friend has! My husband ordered the pork quesadilla, which arrived with a dry shell, paper-thin layer of cheese, and MAYBE 10 small pieces of pork. And this was $7.49. I ordered the #4, two enchiladas and rice/beans. The rice and beans were barely warm, and neither had any flavor. The chicken enchilada had good white meat chicken in it, but that's about all I can say good about it - it was pretty much tasteless. The ground beef enchilada was not any better. The red sauce had no zest to it, and added nothing to the enchiladas for taste. This was $7.99 All-in-all, a very disappointing meal! The only good thing, and the reason I gave two stars, was our waitress, Olivia, who was prompt and friendly. This is rodeo weekend, and they were busy, so maybe the kitchen was too busy to put out their best food, but this is certainly a place I will not recommend or return to.

Our first but not our last to this expanded Mexican Restaurant. Service was great, atmosphere was quaint, great bar, But the food was way above any we have had at other Mexican restaurants.
What a treasure, did not want meal to end. Service was good, no rushing you, handicap accessible.
Recommended by our friends from Mexico, and we can see why!

Horribly long wait for a take-out order (around 30 min).
Bad tasting food, someone needs to clue these people in on what adobada
should taste like...(hint: it's not chewy pork fat).

We’re disappointed to hear that we failed to make your experience outstanding, Mike. During our prime meal times the wait for take-out can be close to an hour; however, someone should have informed you of that and we apologize. We agree with you that the adobada our supplier brought us that day wasn’t the best. If you would be so kind as to come back in and ask for one of us, we’d love to give you a meal of our new product at no charge and see what you think. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts – we really appreciate it! Best, Rex & Mike (Owners)

We had lunch there today and the food was very good, the service was great, and the staff is very friendly. I have to disagree with @Prescottwines the chips are definitely home made and not from a bag you can buy at a grocery store and the beans taste great. We had a group of 12 and they accommodated us very well. We will visit again.

The chicken chimichanga was as good as it gets, the service was fast, and the people were nice. I will visit again.
