This place used to be smaller and had an eclectic menu with a lot of South American flare. Now it's twice the size and just another heavily decorated bland Tex Mex cantina. Doubt that we'll go back.

This is by far my favorite Mexican restaurant in Springfield. The service and food are always outstanding. My favorite dish is the Swiss burrito with grilled chicken (I like this better than the shredded chicken), and of course you can't go wrong with their cheese sauce either...delish!

Met with friends for a dinner and drinks. They have expanded recently, but the atmosphere is still quite homey. Had a margarita while waiting for our table, not bad, but nothing exceptional. The best part of this place is friendly and efficient service. The bartender and the servers were just excellent. The food was ok.

Wife and I usually come here 2-4 times a month, often with our older running friend. This place is so good and it's so close to where we live. The salsa tastes fresh, the chips are crisp and not greasy, and the food is wonderful. You have to try the Chorri Pollo! I routinely order the steak and chicken fajitas.... More

Was traveling through the area and wanted to eat at a Mexican restaurant. Look at the reviews and decided to try this place. Food was good. Prices were fair. Portions were very large. Thick chips. Good salsa. Did not care for the cloth tablecloths that you can not help getting salsa or other liquids on. Very pretty tablecloths but they... More

What a great restaurant. I just can't say enough good things about this place. The food is always delicious and the owner is always there to greet you and thank you for coming in. 10/10 my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. We live 10 miles away and pass several other Mexican restaurants to make our way here, and it is... More

From the time we walked in to the time we walked out, service was great. The hostess and wait-staff were attentive, friendly, and seemed very happy to be working there. The atmosphere was that of a traditional Mexican restaurant. It was bigger on the inside than its store-front appearance indicated. It had a decent sized bar area. No beer on... More

My wife and I stopped in for dinner on weekend trip to Springfield. We did not choose the restaurant based on ratings (it was number 62 ranked or so at the time), but more so on the photos and menu description. The atmosphere is quite nice and our server Sofia was pleasant. The restaurant seemed to be popular with locals... More

We are sorry you were not offer dessert on your last visit. Not an excuse but sometimes on the weekend we are running around like crazy to ensure everyone have a good experience.

My husband and I have been eating at AZ T CA since it was opened several years ago. It is family owned. The owner is always on site and a very friendly young man.
