We have visited this restaurant over the years and usually had good food and good service. We so enjoy eating outside and having our tasty margaritas. Today the margs were average and the same with the quesadilla....nothing special. But we were really disappointed with the service.......not enough help outside......we felt totally invisible with the lack of service and the amount... More

Endless house salsa and chips in addition to generous portion plates. If you like Mexican food, this is a prime pig out spot for sure! One of my new favs after moving to this area. If you are a tequila fan, they have an impressive selection and you can also join their tequila club. I have not yet partaken in... More

Stopped here on a Thursday night at 5:05 and the place was packed with a waiting line out the door. The weather was not being cooperative and the only place to sit right away was outdoors so we decided to do take out. We had to wait about 25 min for our food but the waitress was very nice about...

We visit Apache Junction once a year. Last year this restaurant was perfect and I rated it that way. This years visit was just ok. The steak fajitas were skimpy for the price. More grilled onions and peppers than meat. The grande quesadilla was tasty but the tortilla was soggy. Salsa was good as well as the service. We will... More

Sat on the patio on a busy Sunday evening. Great tasty meal- good service, meal took a little while likely due to the crowd. Recommend to anyone wanting a fresh and flavourful meal.

We had a reservation for a Friday night. Our drink order came through promptly, our food order not so much-maybe 45 minutes, which is a long time to wait with chips and (mild) salsa. I think we were on our second drinks before the food came, but don't recall. They have a selection of American food (burgers, chicken) for those... More

This has to be one of the best nachos we have ever had. Great blend of flavors with nothing overwhelming an thing else. Topped only be the cost during happy hour.

Had to wait to be seated because there was no clean silverware! Who needs silverware for chips and salsa and a Corona! Could have at least sat down and nibbled while we waited for the ware.... plenty of empty seats!!! Food was really good, flavor well developed and salsa was freshly made and tasty! Service was not that great however!
