“Molcajete, Molcajete, Molcajete, Molcajete”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Molcajete, Molcajete, Molcajete, Molcajete. Why are you ordering something else? What is wrong with you? What are you thinking? Once, I was being stupid and ordered something else (the pork carnitas) and it was not good. That was dumb. Then, I didn't do that again. You shouldn't either. Seriously - order this dish - but you need at least one other someone to finish it.

Just FYI - a Molcajete is a bowl of meat (chicken, beef, shrimp, etc) in a bubbling cauldron of cheese and salsa. Soooo good.

“Authentic Old Mexico Style Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Located on the main street in Show Low, you can't miss this pink, adobe restaurant. Everytime we eat here, it's like taking a trip to Mexico. They specialize in creative seafood dishes but also offer traditional Mexican food. Always excellent service. Can be a little expensive if you order beer, sangria, margaritas, etc...with meal, so beware. Portions are huge, so split a plate or take it home...it's even better the next day!

“Pricey but Super Delicious and Fresh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Very friendly staff.

Food that was a step or two above most Mexican places.

Very fresh and tasty, nothing was overwhelmed by the cheese like most Mexican places in the US. Oh I can taste it still thinking about it. Service was kind but the food was slow to come, so much so they apologized.

Were there at lunch, for two it was $32!

Would go again in a NY minute.

“We loved the food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

The food and service was excellent. I had the carne asada burrito combo and my date had a chicken burrito combo. We both loved our food and I would highly recommend the place. Maybe a little pricey for a Mexican restaurant, but delicious. We were there for dinner and had two plates with two drinks for around $33.
