Food is ok. A little pricey for what it is but it is good wholesome food. I would eat there in a pinch. The meat tends to be dry aond overcooked for my taste. They will customize your tacos and I like that.

This restaurant has good food, but be warned. If you go in at lunch time, as I have, you're in for a wait. I've never had less than 10 people in front of me. So, if you're not in a hurry, and you don't mind...More

When you are willing to drive an extra 25 minutes just to eat at a restaurant, then you KNOW it is worth it. This little unadorned Mexican food place in Snowflake AZ looks like a gas station on the outside. No fancy tablecloths for this...More

I've been in here at least 25 times. The people that dis this place don't realize what it is. It's not a 5 star restaurant. Most people are taking their food home or to their work place. People should not expect great atmosphere. This is...More

El Cupidos was the best Mexican food in Snowflake for a long time. No more. Rude snotty service, burnt old beans, lack of attention to customers wishes, tacos with uncooked corn tortillas. We use to stop at this place every time we passed through Snowflake....More

I love their food. They have the best Chile Relleno Burrito, and if you add the Jalapeno cream cheese its amazing. On Fridays they have awesome BBQ ribs. I have never had anything that I did not love.

I've eaten here 2-3 times a month for 8 years. Get the shrimp tacos (I prefer no pico de gallo) or the chicken El Cupido burrito (it's the size of an infant) you won't be disappointed.

Yummiest burritos EVER. My favorite is the Big Jake. I don't usually eat in the restaurant myself (the gas station isn't the most relaxing or inviting atmosphere), but the food can't be beat. The servers are usually very friendly and I enjoy my experience every...More
