“Fast but Typical”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

this is a good place to go with a group for a quickly served meal. The selections are typical combination plates although they do havesome regular american fare. the food was very tastey and served on a hot plate.their guacomole dip and their pica de galo were fresh and homemade. I had the Sopapilla compuesta and it was a good value for the money.

“Above average Mexican restaurant.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Not the best by a long shot but a decent place for Mexican food. The decor isn't much but the service was very good. I'll be back.

“Good value and service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

We walked here based on a recommendation from the desk at our hotel. My family was pleased with the variety on the menu and everyone found something they liked.
My wife's fajitas were sizzling hot, with excellent pico de gallo and fresh tortillas that appeared to have been made at the restaurant. My combination plate was a good value and I enjoyed everything. The folded taco (fried?) was new to me, but it was good. My daughter ordered a steak and baked potato and was pleased.
As we waited for our meal (not long!), I took it as a good sign how many locals stopped in for takeout.
Finally, Negro Modelo on tap and an excellent flan for dessert made it a good stop.

“Great New Mexican food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Went to the Foothills location. Nice atmosphere and great service. Salsa served in a bottle and is just the right spiciness. Had the sopasillos with red sauce. The chili on top was delicious- large chunks of pork. Had cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream on top. Also had the chimichanga- large and served Christmas (red and green as requested). It was busy so service was a little slow but our waitress kept checking on us and resupplying our chips.A definate place to go for good food.
