There were three adults and eight teens on a Sunday lunch. The servers were soooo kind and good-natured with our teens. The teens really didn't know what they wanted, and their Spanish was only passable. Plus they were intimidated by the find dining atmosphere. The servers were so gracious and helpful. The huge ice cream desserts were a hit! I... More

This is a taste of old Nogales. Have you ever had Mexican food? Have you ever been to mexico? No? Then you haven't. Go to Ueta and buy some duty-free whiskey. Then go across the line and make a left. Ask anybody where LA Roca is and they will know. You are within 500 feet from the gate. They have... More

A very nice cab driver took us there.. from the border about a ten minute drive. We were greeted by wonderful waiters and a trio of mariachi players. It was Sunday, so their buffet was featured along... More

Don't be fooled by the formal look. The food was great. Mexican dishes were very reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

We had two appetizers - chips and salsa and guacamole. My husband is not a fan of avocados, but he devoured the guacamole. Our entrees were delicious. We will definitely return if we are... More

I took my wife here after crossing the border, frankly, she wasn't too comfortable in the city until we went here. Great service, great atmosphere and good food. Loved it! Would go back again if I could.

Been here numerous times both walking and driving. very easy to find. driving requires an interesting route. Food is always excellent. The shrimp dishes are especially good. Try the chef's special shrimp. Margaritas are the real thing their website has coupon for a free one. Very attractive interior set back into the rock wall. If you get there early enough... More
