Each time we are in Phoenix, we eat at this restaurant and it never disappoints! Yes, the tortillas are thicker, but the taste is fantastic - not flour-y or stale tasting at all. I would agree with other reviewers that the amount of meat on the 1/2 pound is a little skimpy - there was just enough for my husband... More

We were looking for a Tex-Mex place near our hotel and found this. Order the fajitas and they were marginal at best, very bland. Salsa was basically a cold cup of blended tomato. The large fajita didn't even come with rice and beans.

I helped build this place back in 1986. Ate here a lot back then because it was GOOD! Missed it when I moved out of town. Been four years since I chowed down here and it is STILL good and fun. Succulent food, no matter what you choose. Always a great friendly staff.

We were staying at the Courtyard nearby and since Fajtas was within walking distance thought we would give it a try. There was a wait when we arrived but we sat at the bar for a beverage. The staff was very attentive and brought our drinks quickly. When we sat down for dinner the menu was bit overwhelming. I settled... More

It's been awhile since we've been here just because we don't live close but decided it was worth the drive and we're glad we did. We ordered 2 pounds of fajitas- original and chicken and were so pleased that the same taste we remembered hadn't changed. The freshly made tortillas are the best! Our server Ruben was excellent and was... More

Great chips and salsa and some of the best iced tea. I ordered the Pollo Dilla, (chicken quesadilla) and it came with a generous amount of guacamole and sour cream. Portioned perfectly. My husband ordered the Border Dinner and he wasn't as impressed. He said his Enchiladas were dry. We would go back and maybe he will try something else.

While there was a limited menu, it may have been since we were there for lunch. The food was hot and tasty, but nothing out of the ordinary. I asked for a hotter salsa and was told they do not have one. That is a shame. They did have one of my favorite hot sauces, Arizona Gunslinger. The wait staff... More

Great quality food, quick service, good recommendation by waiters, just a heads up 1/2 a pound two people full pound three to four people. Tortillas thick hand made will get you a little sleepy afterwards. You might smell like onions afterwards.

The fajitas here are extremely good! The Cadillac beef is their signature cut and is fantastic. The shrimp are also plentiful and delicious. But the standout are the tortilla shells - homemade, substantial and addictive! Nearing the thickness of a pita, that might actually be the only knock on the place. That the tortillas are SO thick that in order... More

Never been there before and was hoping for a great new place to enjoy. The inside needed to be updated pretty badly. It was all outdated, but that doesn't effect the customer service or quality of food. Our waitress was great. Very quick to refill drinks and ask if we needed anything. The issue was the price vs the amount... More
