Found this little restaurant while visiting relatives in Havasu - made a special stop on our way home from Laughlin just so we could have lunch - the place is not fancy but the food and service is always good...

As you walk in, you are overwhelmed by the smell of "old". I couldn't get over the smell so had a hard time enjoying my food. Food and drinks were okay.

The meat in the taco el pastor was dry and flavorless. The shrimp dinner was not as expected. They were out of albondigas soup. The only thing that was good was the margarita.

Having one of those days when you can't decide what to fix for dinner? This is the place to go. We have lived in Havasu for 27 years and this is our favorite place for casual dining. Wonderful food, friendly staff, great margs.
