I am from New Mexico and it is hard to find the yummy Mexican food like that. This place has it. The chile relleno is soooo good. I have lived near this place for 7 years and this was my first try.

Prices are average but not worth the visit. Food was cold and not authentic Mexican. Service was very slow and it was not very busy. Will not return.

The food was spot on. I loved that it was walking distance from our hotel. service was a little slow but overall a great place to get Mexican food. It also seemed to be a locals favorite.

So we tried it for lunch. Best I can say is that it's just OK. Sort of dingey inside and non-descript food. Los Gringos Locos is in the same shopping center and is a much better choice, even if you might have to wait for seating.

The restaurant and bar are nice but the food is lacking. We will not return. Very Americanized food. Not authentic Mexican. I had a tostada that was mostly lettuce. I didn't like the flavor of the red enchilada sauce. The margaritas tasted good, but didn't have much tequila in them. My husband felt the fish taco and green Chile enchilada... More

It was a bit pricey for me. The service was good, food was ok. I will not go again just because I have found something better and prices are affordable.

Good authentic Mexican food prepared with fresh ingredients and reasonably priced. The customer service was great and I would eat here again versus a chain restaurant. What this place might lack in alcohol or atmosphere it surely makes up for with real good food made and served by people who care.

We had to wait a bit for a table but that means it must be good. Had the triple enchilada dish along with 3 margaritas at only $2.50 each. The plate was very hot so be careful not to touch it. Excellent food at fair prices. If you're in AJ, give them a try!
