It was very quiet when my wife and I arrived for late lunch. We were greeted warmly and seated in a booth. Menu selection was vast and varied. Started with tortilla chips with a spicy red sauce. My wife ordered the shrimp tacos and I ordered the fish tacos. They were very good. My wife went on and on about... More

We had eaten here in early 2013 and had a very good supper meal. Being in Yuma three years later, we decided to try it again. Absolutely not disappointed! Our waitress was very friendly, attentive and personable. The food (I had three types of tacos. My wife had a combo plate of two different tacos and rice/beans) was delicious. Plus,... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant located on 16th St. Just a few blocks off I-8 entering Yuma from the west. There is plenty of parking. There is "NO U- TURN" allowed at this corner so save yourself a traffic ticket, make a left and go a half block and make a u turn. Parking lot entrance is... More

Good Mexican food and margaritas. Really enjoyed the history of the restaurant. Been in Yuma since 1912. Their choices of tequila fill one whole page about 14 inches long. Easy access from freeway too.

Visited for lunch because it was easy access from interstate. Service was good, place was busy with lunch crowd but the area was kept clean. Food was good and service quick. Staff was well trained and helpful when needed.

If I would have looked at some of the photos posted on Yelp before I went there today I wouldn't have gone. The photos other people have posted show the food, nothing looks decent. Well believe me, the food here is awful. When it arrived to my table It had a film over it, like it was poured directly from... More
