We love this place. It is a family favorite where everything is cooked perfectly. Summer friends go there as well.

They have inexpensive lunch specials for $7.49--I had the Poblano Mole Chicken Enchiladas. Not a lot of sauce and not very spicy either. They came with the usual rice and refried beans. It was a very filling meal. The signs/menu say it's a La Tonalteca restaurant -- not the La Tolteca listed on TripAdvisor. As you can see from my... More

Ok I lived in AZ and had great Mexican food but this restaurant is still my favorite!!! Their deep fried chicken chimichanga with queso cheese sauce is Delicious. Margaritas and chips with salsa, YUM. We go here regularly and never not liked what we got. Away from crowds but near a fun water park and go carts.

This is my second review of this restaurant. My first was a year or two ago yet I eat here a few times per month. There are many reasons why we go there so often but the main two reasons are the quality of the food and the great service. Everything is always very good and the prices are very... More

Very colorful deco. The server was very nice and took good care of us. We couldn't believe the big, tender chunks of chicken in the enchiladas. Will gladly return next time we are in the area.

My husband and I stopped in here randomly, and enjoyed our chicken fajita's immensely. The chicken was well cooked, the wait staff pleasant and quick. Our overall experience was great, and we were happy to have happened upon this place. We will be back next time we are in town.

Consistently good food. There are a few authentic options but mostly your standard texmex. Margaritas are decent. Tamales and fajitas are good. Good value and you always know what you are going to get. Service is quick but not super friendly.

We want there with our baseball team so we has a larger group. Most of the kids got the chicken nuggets. My daughter didn't eat hers and she loves nuggets. I tried a bit of one and it was absolutely terrible! It tasted like fried bread, no chicken at all. My meal and my wife's meal was very salty. My... More

First visit and it will be the last visit. Walked in and thought it was a really pretty place. They were not busy at all. We were sat all the way in the back. The waitress took our drink order and finally returned with our drinks. We gave her our order. She did not wrote anything down. A few minutes... More
