OMG. So good, and we were so hungry that we made the mistake of eating all of our food (enchiladas and chile rellenos). Guess who didn't eat dinner that night?!

The only negative was the salsa - it's terrible. It tastes like canned tomatoes blended up with a little onion. Liberal application of hot sauce did little to help, but that downside was quickly forgotten as we plowed through our delicious entrees.

We sat on the patio overlooking the valley and fountain - beautiful view! Service was a little slow at first, but smoothed out. Food was excellent! My chimichanga was delicious as was my husband's beef enchiladas.

Took some friends who we're visiting Sedona for the first time. We chose to sit on the patio and saw a beautiful sunset. Everyone had something different and we were all satisfied. Salsa is very good. Our waitress obviously didn't want to be there. Very unfriendly and disappeared after bringing our drinks and never checked back with us after we got our food. Luckily the busboy picked up her slack and finished her job.

This large restaurant also has a great patio with beautiful scenic views. Margaritas are good, salsa is terrific, and food is great. Traditional menu, but not the cookie-cutter meals you get at some Mexican restaurants. I had the pollo asada burrito and my companion had enchilladas with beans and rice. Atmosphere is good, staff is friendly, service is good, and meals are delivered quickly.

A great Mexican restaurant in my opinion always starts with the salsa. Salsa was fantastic but it didn't stop there. The Carne Asada was made perfect as were the enchilada de pollo. We were told by a local that this place was the best Mexican restaurant and margaritas in Sedoba and he could not have been more correct. I've traveled a lot, I've eaten a lot if Mexican food and this tops the chart!
