They have tacos, burros and lots of Mexican dishes. I really enjoyed the taste of the Horchata. The food was not the best and service was slow.

I had the sampler of 3 tacos and they were small but delicious. The real highlight though was the elote, it was simply perfection. The perfect combination of cheese and butter and corn, oh yum!

Been here many times both for lunch and dinner. Always consistently fresh and delicious basic Mexican food for not much at all. Ample outdoor seating. Dog friendly. Family groups frequent. Carne Asada is my fav but try the El Pastor or the Vampiro. They make their own Horchata and Mexican Coke is on hand. Water cups for free. One of... More

Love the beans and street tacos. Not cheap eats, though. The restaurant is clean. Staff is friendly. Food is very good. Fresh ingredients.

Loved the casual outdoor seating. Food was not expensive but fresh and good. Liked my burrito better than tacos but all food was good! No alcohol, fyi.

Tough little place to find if you haven't been there before but a nice find for a quick lunch. Little odd with no menu except what is written on the walls so it's a little hard to make a decision on what you want when they ask you at the counter for your order. Might be a little easier to... More

Yup! They are closed and the space is for sale/lease if you are looking at getting into the Melrose Curve, which is a coming place. The city is putting money into the area around there.

This is the hole in the wall place that everyone must go to! Never miss the opportunity to eat here when I can. Everyone I've every taken or recommended here would say the same. Excellent food, good atmosphere, great prices. Not a bad order on the menu, but don't go without ordering the Vampiro!

THis is the worst Mexican food restaurant I have been to in Phoenix. The food is bland and there is not much of it for the money it is not fresh and compared to other local places.. it is terrible. For the money you could do much better going elsewhere.

Off the beaten path in Old Scottsdale - worth searching it out. Nice little patio out back with umbrellas for shade. Prices and portions are great. Taste was the best we've had for Mexican type food. Flavours were great and the food was fresh. Only down side was that they don't have a liquor licence at the moment. A cold... More
