Food and service always excellent. Awesome margaritas. Disappointed they will be closing in July. One of the best places in town. Will have to eat out a few more times than normal before they close. I have never had a bad meal or service here.

Should have listened to the local we met at a nearby ruin. She said her out of town guests always want to go there but she could only recommend a couple of items. We were hungry and that was first place we saw. Should have...More

Closing in August- such a shame. Excellent stacked enchiladas with pork - lots of meat and egg was cooked just right. My wife had steak, avacada, cheese enchilada, pork enchiladas with rice and beans. Steak was tender. We would definately go back. Wait staff was...More

We stopped in for an early meal. The food was good, well-presented and hot. My wife and I enjoyed ourselves but discovered the owner was having a child so she has plans to close the restaurant and focus her energy on being a "mom" instead...More

Wonderfull food with large portions and great drinks; I ate here several times over the 3 years I lived in the area. This is the place I always recommended to anyone new to the area.

This restaurant was recommended by someone from our hotel. We were not disappointed. Great food and the waitresses was very nice. Very cool decor inside and you get a LOT of food. First time having a stuffed sopapilla and it was delicious!

Good food, great service, parking a little difficult. Prices are a little high for what you get. You would think their food would be a little more spicy than what they were.

Nice variety on the menu. Interesting dishes with plenty of variety. If one likes spicy, there are plenty of choices. Pleased not to see piles of rice & beans on my plate with the entree, but a moderate serving amount. No fancy decorations, but a...More
