Went for a Friday lunch. It's very petty and colorful, nice outdoor patio. Service was just ok, considering they weren't busy. Our big disappointment was the food. VERY bland, flavorless. The salsa tasted like it came out of a jar. And very expensive. I've lived in Arizona all my life and have to say it ranked at the bottom of Mexican food experiences.

If you are seeking some authentic Mexican food this is the place. Very casual with indoor & outdoor seating. A local brought us here for dinner and it was outstanding. I could have eaten the chips & salsa all night. Will make this a stop every time I get to Phoenix. Noteworthy: the pitcher of margaritas may have been the worst I have ever had. Stick to the food.

We had a reception for our conference here and the drinks were good. We got hungry and then had a sampler platter that had some really good enchiladas.

Loved colorful tables, plates, napkins and decor. Service was good. Food was adequate but if you are seeking real authentic mexican, try somewhere else.

Large restaurant with various "rooms". We waited 30minutes for a table on a Friday night at 7:30. Not really worth the wait. Mexican food was good but there are plenty of really good other options in Phoenix.

We felt we were rushed. The waiter gave us menus and returned to ask fro our food order before we had a chance to look at the menus. He checked two more times before he brought our drinks. We were staying at the Arizona Grand Resort so this was a nice close option we could walk to. Think of it was a normal hotel cafe that serves Mexican food - neither really pleases but never really displeases.
