We were visiting residents there and they insisted upon us eating there. Glad they were. Food was fresh (had the buffet), plentiful and good. We were dining with someone that had special needs and the staff were the greatest. Highly recommend and will be back!

Four of us had a disappointing dinner at Cavillo's last week. My wife and I live in New Mexico and love Mexican and New Mexican food. The fajitas were bland and oily with little flavor...no spice at all. The taco salad was OK but not...More

We ate here based on the reviews. We did not eat at the buffet but ordered off the menu. The food was okay but I've had better Mexican food. Nothing to write home about.

We were seated promptly in huge dining room. Chips didn't taste fresh but salsa was nice. The $11 buffet was expansive. Good service even though it was lunch time.

Not sure I can add much, but my understanding is the buffet is an all-day feature so it should be good for lunch. I think the other reviewers have provided an pretty good estimate of the price.
Do they have a buffet at dinnertime? How much is it?
