It was busy, but didn't take long to get our order. Great food, good service. Close to motel I was staying at. Will return.

This may not be as authentic as aficionados require, but it's wonderful none-the-less. Fabulous fresh ingredients, a terrific salsa bar, consistent quality, terrific service,and beyond great food. Maybe not as you remembered it in Mexico, but consistently, endlessly fine for north of the border.

We split a combo meal with cameras, enchilada and tostada. Only thing less than excellent was the enchilada that had tough tortilla. But red sauce was excellent. Salsa bar was fun. Watermelon infused margarita is not to be missed!

Stopped here on the way to the Grand Canyon to take care of some business. Went in for a quick lunch. Amazing specials! $3.50 frozen margaritas!! Already prepared in a Taylor slushy type machine and they were absolutely amazing! Lots of alcohol and just the right consistency and sweetness. Other very inexpensive and delicious lunch specials. Back to Flagstaff 2... More

Really good food. Very different from what I usually see at Mexican restaurants. No one in our group was unhappy with either the taste or portion size of the dishes. Would gladly come back.

Sure it's on Route 66... and some tv guy went there ??? But the food and atmosphere was just "ok" ... I'd not come back. Just wasn't all that great

We'd heard great things about this place, but compared to our local (Tucson) Mexican restaurants, it was a bit disappointing. My husband did love his shrimp enchiladas, but my tacos were just OK. I am not crazy about chunks of beef in my tacos, though; I prefer ground or shredded beef. The salsa bar featured several choices, but most were... More

This was a group function, so I cannot attest to meals served off the menu. The food for our group function was sub par. To begin, we had a salsa/chip bar which was fine except that the server shooed us away from the cheese because (in his words) it was for later when the fajitas were served. What? So, finally...

This was recommended by the hotel staff and was very good. After we arrived we discovered that Guy Fieri had been here and it's easy to understand why. Good food in large portions, no one should go away disappointed or hungry.

I had the pork quesadilla and my husband had the steak and shrimp fajitas. The pork quesadilla was delicious and the guacamole was very fresh with tomatoes mixed in, also very good. My husband didn't like the shrimp fajitas because they were not very seasoned and he asked for the onions and peppers to be cooked extra well but they... More
