Reviewed January 1, 2014

Got food served hot. Guacamole was excellent. Great value. Service a little slow, but the place was very busy.

I always look forward to eating here when we visit Tucson and this trip was no exception. The food (especially the tamales) was outstanding and service great! Kudos!

“Fun place!”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

We had to wait maybe 10 minutes for a table. The food was great. I had the tortilla soup, others had shrimp salad, chicken fajita and burritos. Everything was good and we'd love to go back.

“Fantastic Mexican cuisine in a relaxed slightly upscale atmosphere”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Absolutely loved this place. Fantastic food in good size portions that is authentic. Had fajitas although there are so many tasty things on the menu. Although we had to wait for a bit to get a table relaxing outside on their wait chairs were just fine. They also have a decent size bar to wait if u wish. There are a few TVs as well to catch the game thats on. But by far this is probably some of the best Mexican food i have had from around the country. Oh and the desserts are just fabulous. Try the churros or apple pie chimichanga. Our waiter was busy but still very attentive and helpful with the menu. A real winner in Tucson.
