We love Mexican food and Alfonso's was a rare find. Located in a gas station might be a turn off for some but the food was fantastic. Following TA reviews we each tried the mini lengua tacos - could have eaten three more! I only...More

Awful lunch never stop there again. McDonald's would have been better and I don't like fast food. Staff not great either

Was looking for local Mexican and found it, in the gas station no less. Gave this 5 stars because the food is great and only reason I would have given less stars is because it's in a gas station and that actually makes it better....More

Don't be confused - this place is attached to a gas station - but that doesn't mean it's not delicious food. A lot of food for the money, and the platters come with awesome beans and rice. I also liked the variety of salsas available.

If you are looking for good, fast Mexican-American food (along the lines of Alibertos, Filibertos, etc.), this is a great stop. The seating area is a bit messy (hence the 4 stars) and cramped, but the food is great, and the service was super friendly....More

Don't know what other reviewers are talking about. It was dirty. They got the order wrong. The food was disgusting. Couldn't finish it. Anything would have been better. First time I've been misled by Trip Advisor. Beware - don't go!!
