I had a shredded beef chimichanga with rice and beans on the lunch menu. Reasonably priced. The chips were great. I loved that they left a pitcher of water and a carafe of extra hot sauce. Service was friendly and fast. This was the first time I tried this restaurant, I'll come back.

I am pretty picky on my mex-american eats. When I go to a big chain mex place, I like to see them make an effort on what they feel is authentic mex food. The inside decor is beautiful and just a lovely lovely setting. Had a wonderful margarita. My kids liked the food and I thought both appetizers and my... More

Ate lunch at Ajo Al's for the first time on recommendation of friends. We were not disappointed with the entire package. Seated quickly and loaded up on tasty salsa and warm chips made in-house. Our server Juan did an excellent job answering our menu questions. Pleasantly surprised by the large amount of food we received from the lunch menu. All... More

The restaurant has traditional decore with traditional touches from Mexico and the Desert Southwest. The food is traditional flavors and the staff is exceptional. I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone living in Phoenix, AZ or visiting the valley of the Sun.

Four of us dined here and only one raved about the food, while the other three thought it was just average. It was the Mushroom and Onion Enchiladas with White Jalapeño sauce that took the prize! The Margaritas were fine, and the salsa had just the right amount of heat, although the fact that it is served in a little... More

Service is friendly and attentive. However, be very careful if you order the Pizza Nortena!!! I swear that it is addictive! This delight isn't a regular pizza--it is Mexico's version of one! This delectible offering is made with a white sauce and cheese then sprinkled with green onions and comes in two sizes. I always choice the larger size so... More

First time, and well worth the visit. I enjoy Mexican food an Ajo's did not disappoint. Loads of flavor and adequate portion sizes. Service was good and attentive. Prices were comparable to other restaurants. Easy access to Bell Rd. Full bar is available.
