Small restaurant but excellent service and the food is great! The carne asada was perfectly seasoned and plenty of pieces of meat. The portions are good size and they have a salsa bar (small) with many different salsas to try. All menu items are resonably...More

I am from AZ, so I know Mexican food. I will definitely be back for their tacos. The salsas looked wonderful and it was really relaxed.

This is not your prettied-up faux-Mexican yuppified bar and grill. One hears very little English spoken by the customers. But the food is well-prepared, the recipes authentic (with the substitution of vegetable oil for lard), the prices right, the service friendly. On a nice day...More
