I have to be honest, in late October not much was opened in the area. Was not expecting much but this was some of the best Mexican food I have ever had!

This is your basic Mexican dining. They do a fine job, the service is good, the decor is nice, it's right off the highway and has lots of free parking, the prices are cheaper than most places around Torrey, and the views are great. This...More

Almost authentic Mexican food. Service a bit slow still the food was tasty. Loved their version of chips and salsa.

Hit the spot after a hike. Decent food, decent price. Had the barbacoa tacos and fish tacos. Both were tasty.

My husband had the burrito and I had the chicken enchiladas, which were delicious! The rice was very plain and nothing to write home about but still a good place to get a good mexican dinner.

Ate here based on others reviews. Server did not understand english. Chips and salsa came with only hot salsa, no mild. Ordered carne asada tacos..meat was okay, needed more seasoning. Refried beans were runny and the mexican rice was horrible.

Good food, for a decent price. Had the barbacoa tacos - pretty tasty and very filling. The chips and salsa were also good. If you're craving Mexican food, this is the place to go!

We are on our way to Escalante and would be late for dinner. We stopped at Torey, Utah, a small town and found this Mexican restaurant. There was a wait and we could not decide what to do. As it is Friday night it was...More

This is a brand new cafe serving Mexican Food. It is part of the Sinclair Gas Station complex. The food was excellent. They travel a couple of times per week to Salt Lake City to get fresh produce.
