Drove by Hugo's for weeks before we learned they had the best fish taco's and other Mexican food offerings in town. Now we stop by regularly to enjoy their specials while we continue to feast on their Baja fish taco's. Not fancy inside, but very...More

Hugo's is my absolute favorite Mexican restaurant in Prescott. It's an absolute hole-in-the-wall, which makes it even better! I LOVE their food. It's the real deal! Be sure to try their very unique chile relleno, which I love because it's not filled with goopy cheese....More

We've been to Hugos probably a thousand times... no joke. We get tacos every time, because they're the best. Manny knows how to make good food. Small place with good home-made salsa at the salsa bar. Great stuff. Never disappoints!

Went in to Hugos again and was so happy that I did. The food was awesome the medium salsa is the best. Whether you are visiting or live in Prescott this is a must. And yes this qualifies as a hole in the wall place.

This place is deceiving, looks like not much on the outside, but it has some of the best Mexican food in the area. There's an outside area to sit and eat, nothing fancy, but it's clean and fine for very casual dining. The food is...More

Quick but authentic Mexican food from the smallest of kitchens with some rustic outdoor dining as well. Good for lunch there or take-out, also quick dinners.

If you want fancy this is not the place for you but if the food and the atmosphere are what you come for then hustle your buns on down. The servers (& cooks, dishwashers & bussers -oops- that was me) are friendly and fast. We...More

NEW OWNERS! THE CHEFS BOUGHT THE PLACE! The same great food maybe with a little pride added. Durango Mexican cooking at its best.I have passed by this little place for years and didn't give it a second glance. It is a little hole-in-the-wall delight; tiny with a one person kitchen. Now I am a regular, coming a a couple of times a week when in town. If you have to wait, it is well worth it.My wife has taken to the Frijoles Enteros, a vegetarian dish of whole pinto beans, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, guacamole and sour cream, served with fresh, warmed tortillas. I need a little meat, so I ask for a small bowl of red chili to complement the beans- it is not on the menu, but they are quite willing to accommodate. The meat is tender and delicious, in a mild thin red chili sauce. Their salsa bar has chips, salsas, lime wedges and jalapenos. The jalapenos make this a perfect meal. There is a lot of food. We will share a plate as there is too much for one. We will split a red chili burro, or a green chili burro and that is a delicious lunch with a side of free chips and salsa. For a great snack, a little lime on a carne asada taco delights my taste buds and comes close to filling me up.Yes, it is a little different, funky maybe; few tables inside, most outside in the back. It's a little bit of a challenge when it is really cold outside, but I have braved the cold for the food several times. It is a comfy winter environment inside. On a warm afternoon, sitting on the patio in beautiful Prescott with the excellent flavors of Hugo's food is just perfect.
