This is a old school cafeteria type place. Everything looks and tastes homemade. Nothing fancy here. Solid food and good prices. It's dinner on Styrofoam. Sauces and shredded beef were spot on in enchiladas. There wasn't much in the cheese department. I would ask for extra sauce the next time. Service,was quick and friendly

We tried this joint as it was highly rated, we tried the carne asada torta and green chili burrito, both were very good, also ordered a side of fries, you get one potatoe worth of fires for a $1.50, and limp and stale, save your money on the fires. Place looks very run down and sitting area tables are bent... More

Had the Carne Asada plate one day and the Menudo another. The Carne Asada have generous filets of meat. It was tough and chewy and he seasoning was pretty plain. I like the rice and refried beans. The rice was fluffy and seasoned just right and the refried beans tasted fresh with just enough cheese on top. The Menudo is... More

Stopped here for lunch on the way to the rim! The place doesn't look that great, but the food was really good and cheap. This was a first stop for us, and we will continue to frequent when in Payson.

If your life is like a pinata, filled with nothing but broken dreams, then Alfonso's is the perfect pick-me-up. Whenever I visit Payson, Alfonso's is always my first stop. Nothing fancy just good food. I've been hitting this place up for years and love the breakfast burritos the best. I have had just about everything on the menu and don't... More

I love their carne asada with the red sauce from the salsa bar. My family likes the bean and cheese burritos. Either way, they have some of the best tortillas around.

This place looks like an old time (circa 1950s drive in) and long ago it actually was Pedro Wong's Mexican Chinese Drive-In. Now, it is strictly Mexican. Great food, reasonable portions and a fine selection of salsas. A great value.
