Staff was very attentive and every time I have gone with my wife a manager has said hi and I saw one of the owners. Very attentive to the clients. Their food is very good. I never had anything bad. If it isn't exactly what...More

We stopped in for lunch. Our first impression was how very loud it was, and it was even that crowded. Horrible acoustics. Our meals were bland, very little flavor. This is barely mexican food. We will not return and will not recommend this to anyone....More

Great service, our waiter was very attentive. The food was good, not the best Mexican food, but still good. Good children's menu. Worth a try if you are in Apache Junction.

Colorful restaurant with better than average Mexican cuisine. As locals, we visit every 6 weeks or so. Grilled vegetable cheese crisp is good if you prefer your vegetables not soft. Carne asada is a favorite also. Maragritas are very good! The ambiance is rather loud...More
