“Delicious fresh food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We were in Tucson for a tennis tournament. This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. Table for 14 no problem at 5pm. Parking close by.
Menu is presented on a blackboard and described by the waiter. Changes daily.
I recommend the chefs choice. 3 different entrees chosen by the chef. Each plate is different, then you get to sample 3 of the amazing choices. My favorite was the tamale pie.
Tortillas, rice,corn and beans served family style. Loved the concept.
Food was served very promptly especially considering the size of our party.
We ordered one desert selection plate between a few of us. Definitely worth saving a little room for! Also the margaritas were among the best I have ever tasted with Orange slices added.
Definitely would be a regular here if it were closer!

“Most Original & Constantly Changing Menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

This is a true gem. The menu changes daily from top to bottom hence it is written on a chalk board that is brought to your table. This is Mexican, latin american cuisine with a very distinctive and healthy approach. This is a must. I promise if you go you will want to return.

“Great Great Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

My second trip to Tucson was solely to eat at this restaurant again. It is truly, truly amazing. the owner is gracious and warm without hovering. The servers are excellent - friendly and knowledgeable without being gooey. Well designed comfortable airy room. The food.....fantastic.....the menu changes 2x each day to ensure freshness. Always full flavoured interesting and creative - huge portions. Why is it so difficult for restaurants to achieve this consistent level of excellence??? Guess it makes one appreciate the ones that get it right.
