I was really disappointed with almost everything. I went with a group of girlfriends and it was so loud we could hardly have a conversation. The server was so-so and didn't seem to understand the menu very well. She actually told my friend that a dish with the word "arroz" in it (Spanish for rice) had no rice in it.... More

Went for lunch twice and have had the tacos and enchiladas. I had a sampling of tacos and enjoyed all three, but if you're hungrier the enchiladas were more filling and excellent. I substituted Mexican corn for my beans and will do so again, loved the corn!

Visiting with some people locally and asked them where to go for the best Mexican (Tex-Mex?, I'm not sure) around Paradise Valley. They sent us to the Right Place! Got a comfortable relaxing table outside (free valet parking), and had an Excellent Server (Matt). He suggested my Carne Asada Burrito, and our Chicken Enchilada and the fresh Quac. Had a... More

Fantastic service even though the place was packed. 3 taco option--carne asada, carnitas, chicken. Very tasty. The mixed veggies on the side were a bit strange. The best things-- guacamole with perfect chips (hearty enough to scoop guac), delicious salsa, mango margarita, and a fabulous tortilla soup. Great prices for great food!

This restaurant does not take reservations but does allow you to call in advance and put your name on the list. It has a large outdoor seating area which is open to the restaurant which adds to the noise. But the food and drinks and service make it worthwhile.

Had great service and food. Enchiladas that were like lasagna, layered in a small pan- delicious. Everyone in our party were pleased with our meal. Fun atmosphere, glad we came while visiting Scottsdale!

I had a salad with grilled chicken, but you'd never know that because the pieces of chicken were so small and were concealed within all of the droopy, pale, soggy "lettuce". Same story with my partner's fish salad. The free chips and salsa were ok and probably the highlight of the meal.

Had a very pleasant dinner at this place. Easy valet service out front on arrival, nice welcome from the hostess and a lively open room. Went with our family, some old, some young, and lots of good options on the menu for everyone and the service was very good. Would hit this place up again and would recommend it.

Love this place. The food is wonderful and the service is awesome. Super busy all the time, so go on the off hours or be prepared for a very long wait, but it's worth it.

Was here a few nights ago. Chips and salsa are good. The guacamole was pretty good too. We thought the chicken nachos were excellent. The downside were the fajitas. One of us had the shrimp and the other had the steak/shrimp combo fajitas. The shrimp were over cooked. Good flavor, but mushy and chewy consistency. The steak was rather tough... More
