Found this little restaurant while visiting relatives in Havasu - made a special stop on our way home from Laughlin just so we could have lunch - the place is not fancy but the food and service is always good...

As you walk in, you are overwhelmed by the smell of "old". I couldn't get over the smell so had a hard time enjoying my food. Food and drinks were okay.

The meat in the taco el pastor was dry and flavorless. The shrimp dinner was not as expected. They were out of albondigas soup. The only thing that was good was the margarita.

Met friends from NY visiting AZ. The food was very tasty. The atmosphere was a little dark and could use an upgrade and more colorful lively look. The waiter brought us a selection of several of his favorites. Some of the fillings were a little...More

We decided to try this for convenience being so close to our hotel. The 1st thing I noticed were all the broken tiles on the tables. We were tired so we stayed in hopes the atmosphere wouldn't be a reflection of the food. It felt...More
