My husband and I have been Valle Luna regulars for about a year now. Every Monday evening you can find us in the bar having a margarita, him a beer and each of us a bowl of the pork green chili verde. We were very disappointed this last Monday to find they had changed the menu and no longer offer... More

This is and has always been my favorite Mexican food restaurant. The fajitas are hands down the best I've ever had. The chips and salsa are delicious, pollo fundido is amazing, burritos are great....honestly, just about everything here is really amazing. The service is always warm and welcoming and the atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed. Check it out and you... More

Great place that's been around a long time. They've got lots of plaques on the wall from local little league and softball teams thanking them for their support. Food's good. Place can get a little crowded during peak lunch and dinner times. Our nachos were definitely the highlight. Huge, heaping pile of chips, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, black beans and... More

Since I've gotten older, (along with my teeth,) I don't chew very well. Valle Luna is one place we like to go. The restaurant is quite busy evenings, and especially Tuesday evenings. They have a two for one price on meals, along with a drink purchase then. We went with four other people recently, and they all enjoyed their meals,... More

Had the sizzlin' fajitas and chicken burritos plates. Both servings were enough for two people, but that's a common issue with all restaurants these days. Food was fresh except for the tortilla chips which seemed a little stale. Salsas were distinctly different and tasty. We had a coupon for buy one entree get another free and had no issues using...

We love the Mexican food here and the chips are delish! We eat here once every couple months and the food is always good. They always offer coupons in the mail , buy one get one free, so its always a great deal too.

I was in Phoenix visiting family and we stopped here for dinner. The parking lot was packed, but the restaurant is much bigger inside than it looks, and we were seated within 5 minutes. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. I completely understand why my family who live nearby are regulars. The next time I'm in town,... More

My wife and I are regulars here. The chips and salsa are great. The staff is super nice. The food is excellent. If you are looking for a good traditional Mexican restaurant, this is it. But get there early, the parking lot fills up fast for dinner.

Yes, I have been coming here for years. The food is very good, and the specials during happy hour are great. Just had taco basket and some chicken and some beef all very good.
