“Great happy hour .... Great prices”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Went to happy hour with kids and grandparents and everyone left happy. Got a bunch of appetizers (1/2 off) and $1 margaritas were very good....didn't expect much from them so they surprised me. Free chips with salsa and warm bean dip was fabulous. Nacho app was large and delicious. Enchilada soup was a bit salty. Kids enjoyed their kid meals (tacos, Mac n cheese). We got a sampler entree which was great. ( chicken con queso, shrimp wrapped in bacon and a quesadilla). With drinks for 4 adults total bill came to about $60. Real nice bargain for happy hour!

“Good try at true Mexican Carnitas”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

The restuarant was clean . The service was above average but when a problem arrose the response time was very slow. I had ordered the Carnitas dinner the meat looked and tasetd like a typical pulled prok except a TON of Onions it looked more like an onion salad garnished with pulled pork. Had they put the meat in a fryer or on the flat top to give it the carnitas crisp and tast it would have more to the typical Mexuan version. The enchiladas were below average the tortillas were not even heated properly prior to assembly which showed when eaten. They need to pay more attention to the final product. i don't think they have a quality assurance program set in place so the customer gets what he/she is paying for.

“Great food/ authentic atmosphere”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Ate dinner here with my family, while traveling in phoenix. Loved the food, and the outside area. Shared a two person margarita, which would have served four people!! No joke!! Huge!! The bean dip and chips are delicious.

“was looking for a Mexican restaurant near home... keep looking”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

The food is not very good. Chips and salsa are good. I recommend you leave immediately after that.

We just moved to Awhatukee a few months back. We really need to find a reasonably good, affordable Mexican restaurant. This place isn't it. Won't be back.

“A good Mexican restaurant.”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

Middle of the road Mexican. Best part of dinner was the sopapia for dessert. Margarita was good but too much ice.
