“Solid choice for Sonoran-style Mexican food!”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

We've visited this little restaurant numerous times over the years, and it never fails to disappoint. Globe-Miami is blessed with a number of good Mexican food restaurants but this little family-run eatery on Sullivan Street, just of US 60, is our favorite. You'll always find plenty of locals eating there, but the wait staff is always friendly and welcoming to visitors passing through. The menu is pretty basic and inexpensive. One of the combination plates can be a good choice if you're new to the restaurant. I love the chicken tacos, among other things, and the chips and salsa are good. Good value and service in Miami.

“Good Mexican Food”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

This restaurant is a good value for the price paid. The entrees overall are good to very good, and the chips and salsa are excellent. We have eaten here a couple of times when in the area, and will return again. Worth a try if you are in the area.

“Make your way to the back streets of Miami and eat at this local place”
Reviewed 14 January 2013

We have been coming here for years and it has been consistently very good. The service is always top and the turn around from ordering to being plated in front of you is quick. Today we came with friends and enjoyed the green chili burros which is always my favorite and husband had the combo plate of burro and taco and tostada. Friends chose the burros as well and said, "they are good today". Yes the chips are very good with the fill in of fried flour tortillas as well as corn. Salsa's are typical and good enough but the green chili burro is excellent. Today there were loads, loads, loads of chilis inside and oh so good. Actually they were so good that on our way out of town later in the day we stopped and grabbed 2 more that we had fried to eat tomorrow. Oh and we didn't get to sneek in because the same waitresses greeted me and said, "back again"? Yes when you live in the valley and can't find the green chili that you like you head to the hills and make it an afternoon with friends at El Rey's eating and enjoying life.

“Basic but Very Good food for an excellent price.”
Reviewed 14 December 2012 via mobile

Recommended to us by N. P. Volunteer, would have driven by it as it is nothing special from the outside. Basic and clean inside. Mexican food selection was excellent. Service was very good as was the food. Will return again.
