We went on a Saturday night and were seated in the patio. The patio is very inviting and the evening was beautiful. But they need to attend to the details. The patio lights which make it cozy had strings and strings that were not lit. And as evening pressed on, the candles on the tables were not lit unless asked,... More

We go here all the time for their take on Fish Tacos with an Hispanic flair. The beer is reasonable during happy hour as well. We've had other items on the menu, all wonderful. I'm an authentic Mexican food nut and not a Tex-Mex fan. I've read some of the negative reviews and all I can say is "snowbirds go... More

The place came highly recommended. Busy but quick service. Waiter said about four words to me. The entire visit. I asked for water, no ice. Different waiter slammed down a full glass of water, 90% ice. Ordered Bloody Mary and Shrimp Salad. Both delivered without a word. Wait staff walked right by ice filled empty glass several times. Bill dropped... More

This is our second visit. Nothing about the food was good the first time or this time. It was a little after 2pm so we order from their lunch specials. The server brought a small bowl of chips with salsa to the table right after being seated. Chips were okay, a little thicker than we like but no flavor. The... More

So I thought I'd try lunch with a friend yesterday and...Was extremely disappointed in the food! I ordered the chicken enchilattas and my guest ordered the green pork burrito. She took one bite of the meat filling and said "Nope, tastes like dog food". She never ate anymore of it. I tried my enchilada and wasn't impressed with the sauce...It... More

De La Cruz Mexican grill served 12 of us a tasty lunch at a very reasonable price. The service was terrific and friendly. Their happy hour prices made our beverage prices appealing. We will look forward to visiting here weekly after golfing. Definitely worth giving a try.

First we tried dinner. Nice atmosphere. Good service. Food was OK but not great. We thought the prices for what you got were high. Happy hour drink prices were good but after it ended, look out. They have a "restaurant.com" coupon so be sure to get one before going. We went back for breakfast and it was a disaster. Be... More

This restaurant serves a strong margarita based on our experience. The food is good. I had the crunchy beef tacos. The service is excellent. The prices are midrange. This restaurant is near Gold Canyon Golf Course.
