“Fantastic Food”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

I agree that the restaurant needs a complete remodel. I also noticed the interiors tiled roof had a layer of dust and there are more noticeable cleaning issues in the dining area. The booth seats are patched with duct tape. In spite of these downfalls, I must also add that the food is outstanding. The lunch menu is a great choice for seniors on a budget. The drink special on Thursdays can't be topped. The rating would be a 5 if they would put more effort into the decor and cleaning.

“Good food, dirty building”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The food is quite good. Unfortunately, people must dine in what seems to be a very unsanitary building. The closer you look, the worse it is. We felt like we had to shield our food from possible falling dirt and dust from ceiling above. Can't even imaging what the kitchen looks like where they prepare the food. We decided to not go back due to the uneasy feeling while eating there.

“Good Mexican Food”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Some of the best Mexican food in Prescott Valley. Friendly staff. Ample menu to suit tastes. The "A" frame building is old and needs some rejuvination. Salsa and chips good. Food arrived in average time and was better than expected. I would return when in the area. I have had better Mexican food, but I doubt you would find better in Prescott Valley.
A little hard to find as it is on State Route 69, but sits behind other businesses. If you watch carefully, it has limited visability from the highway. The address is Highway 69 and so when you find the numbers are close, look carefully to the rear. Access is by a side street.

“Good food, decent overall.”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Probably one of the best authentic Mexican food restaurants in the area (which isn't saying much). We eat here often and though the food is always pretty good, the service varies in quality. Sometimes they are painfully slow, other times they are better. The restaurant itself is located in one of the oldest buildings in Prescott Valley, but it is acceptably clean and functional.

“needs a deep cleaning”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

I ordered a Chicken Taco Salad for lunch. The salad was good,as well as the chips and salsa. My concern is the eating area is dirty and worn out which makes me wonder what the kitchen looks like. I will not return until they remodel.
