The servers and staff here are great! I expected different but excellent Mexican food here. It was good, but just average with not too much flavor. I like the salsa bar, but again, the salsa was just average.

We found this place on the Diners, Drive Ins and Dives website and figured we would check it out on our way through town. We loved everything we ordered and thought the service was great. Extra bonus that it happened to be Margarita Monday!

Reminded me of my grandmother and aunts cooking. Very good and very great prices! I got the chili relleno meal deal, 1 enchilada, 1 taco and 1 relleno. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing.

Quite possibly the best chicken enchiladas I have ever had. The meat was smoked and full of flavor. Not over powered by any flavors. The beans and rice on the side were also great. Got a small margarita and shared it between my wife and...More

While visiting our son at the Grand Canyon, we almost always stop here for an early dinner. The food is consistently good, the servers always friendly. What ever we order, it is always good.
