Lots of tables. Popular with locals. Big menu with all the Mexican options and combo plates and a few gringo choices. Family focused, kids will like it. Serve only beer and wine. Friendly & fast service.

I love eating here! The food and service is great. Very reasonable prices. Even though it's busy you get seated pretty quickly.

As stated in my title, their salsa is fantastic - thin and spicy and the chips are thin and crisp. I had two Flautas, one chicken and one beef. Both were pretty bland and were just lukewarm.

We decided to eat here as our travel companions wanted authentic food not from a chain restaurant. We got here and it was packed. Waiting in line. Finally got seated.

The line to this restaurant at 5.30 was long. No reservations needed but expect to wait. Typical mexican fare, large quantities. Salsa tasted more like tomato sauce than salsa. Food was fresh and the nachos grandes tasty...no fresh chilies. Great place for a large group or family.

They have the best Mexican food around, no full bar, but you can have beer or wine. We take all our visitors there as the food is not so hot to burn your tongue just very good, you can taste all the flavors.

Had shredded beef burrito and chimicanga and both were very good. Should have gotten enchilada style as ours were plain but a good portion size.

Best Mexican food in Casa Grande. A bit different from our New Mexico Mexican food but very tasty. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Can get a bit noisy at times.

The name of MI AMIGO RICARDO appears in the title of another review for a different restaurant--so it does not appear in trip advisor's listing.
We have dined here several times and always found it very good. It is usually crowded so others find it very good in addition to use. I would like to add this restaurant for review. Their phon number is: 520-836-3858 Thanks!
