This is a regular spot for us. To be clear, this is the Raul and Theresa's located on MC 85 (Buckeye Road). NOT THE ONE LOCATED AT 1363 North Litchfield Road. We ate there once, and it didn't compare. Back to the GOOD R&Ts. Great chips and salsa. Sometime the salsa can be a tad hot for me, so we... More

The food was very good, but it was expensive. We spent over $60 for three for dinner, with no drinks. It was a one time visit for our family.

First time I ever had fajitas and they did not come with sour cream or cheese or pico and lettuce stuff to make the wrap. None! You do get rice and beans I chose all beans.

It was Thursday and I had the Thursday special. Therese's special. It was like a chimi enchilada style. I was concerned that it would be too spicy but it was not. Elizabeth was a great server. Couldn't have had a more delightful meal.

I ate here with work when I was in the area and had one of the best chimichangas I have ever had. I would definitely eat here again.

The ever evolving restaurant that has changed ownership the 12 Years we have frequent it with my family and as you might have guessed the menudo is one of the reasons we keep going back, it's your typical Phoenix area "Mexican" food restaurant with the combo meals that include enchiladas, hard shell tacos with shredded meat and lots of cheese....
