The salsa that comes with the chips is very good tasting. The salsa bar is fabulous great selection of wonderful flavors. Pacifico "Draft" beer is terrific! This is a terrific place to enjoy a meal. We had 2 tacos & enchilada (beef) & I had the chicken taquitos. This is a wonderful - homemade "Authentic" Mexican restaurant. Very clean and... More

Came in here based on reviews and it didn't disappoint. Margaritas we're good and I had the Sonoran enchiladas. They were great. The salsa was pretty good too. I'll come again next time we pass through.

Really enjoyed the food here! Although not very appealing from the curb, I really enjoyed it. Large and open, the place was clean and nice. We had carnitas burrito and cheese enchilada / chili rellano plates. With Pacifico beer and margarrita. The drink was done well, the beer was cold, both dishes were done well and with the salsa bar... More

Six of us went to this restaurant during the evening. It was quite crowded with families, yet the service was great, the families enjoying themselves, and the food was very good. It was also reasonable price with all the food at below $10.00. And, there was a ton of it. Great place.

This is the best Mexican food north of Mexico. Each year when we travel from WI to AZ, El Sarape is one of the stops we look forward to. What a treat. There is a full menu, and then there is the other menu ... the one they make for you when you ask. Locals stop in here all the... More

Six of us went to the restaurant. It was a little crowded and noisy. Our waiter was great, and said they were out of chips, but about 5 minutes later came back with some from someplace. We all enjoyed our food. Our only concern was that it was a little noisy, but that was to be expected as it was... More

Stopped here simply because of the number of cars out front. Place was limited on atmosphere and staff seemed to be overwhelmed. However, to be fair this was possibly due to serving a table of around 20+. We had the carne asada with cheese enchilada. Flavor was good but meat a little over done. Another in the party had the...

We have found this to be the best place around for Mexican food. They have the best warm chips, and salsa, along with a great salsa bar all included if you like. Their service is great and friendly, Food excellent along with good price and value. Quite a large menu, and they let you switch things around on their Combos,... More
