We visited here on way back through to Phoenix and were not disappointed! We were greeted promptly and seated. Our waiter was very genuine and friendly. He also was attentive. The chips were average and the salsa was good but mainly just liked the normal salsa. Most were to hot. Really like the help yourself salsa and choices though. Menu... More

Inconsistent. Go one time and it's pretty good, go another and not so much. Nice variety of salsas. Refried beans are ok, rice is uninspired. Dinner food is better than lunch. Service hit and miss. More attention to staff would go a long way.

Seems this place is riding the wave of Diners, Drive Ins and Dives to secure it's reputation. They have the footage from the show running on a continuous loop on a jumbo screen in the dining area. We called for reservations as we were a party of 6, and we were seated in a back room between a small wedding... More

My lunch started with a sampling of the salsa bar. Everything tasted fresh with good balanced flavor. The salsa bar was awesome. The tomatillo was roasted and nutty. The chipotle had a good smoke but not too spicy to kill the rest of the flavors. Try the carnitas. Best I've ever had. If at lunch, get them with the lunch... More

We had heard of this restaurant from the tv show, Diners Drive Ins and Dives. The reviews had been pretty good, so we decided to give it a try. We tried three different salsas with the chips, and they were a little bland. the "hot" one wasn't that hot either. We got different entrees, and both got mixed reviews. Parts... More

The rice and beans were quite good, but the chips were a bit thick and chewy. They had several salsas from mild to hot that you can try. My wife had the Maui tacos were very spicy which she liked. I had the Tacos El Carbon which were only ok because they came with steamed corn tortillas which get tough... More

Visited mid-week and it was very busy. The highlight is their amazing salsa bar filled with about six different options. The tomatillo sauce is one of the best I've ever tasted. Another favorite was the pineapple habanero which is best described as sweet heat. I tried the soft taco platter which came with two tacos and your choice of meat.... More
