We ate at the bar, and the chips and salsa were pretty good. Our enchiladas were decent. I liked the food better than the service. Our bartender/wait person complained about having to do someone else's job, and wasn't very considerate of people overhearing her. She turned on the charm when she finally gave us the check, after ignoring us the... More

We enjoyed our food, and the staff. The murals on the wall are fun, and make sure you check out the lizard statue!

We both had the combination fajitas which were the best I have ever had. Great authentic Mexican restaurant. Definitely worth a visit

Stopped in here late on a Saturday night while traveling through town. The menu is pretty large. Definitely something for everyone. My quesadilla was pretty solid - though it's admittedly a tough thing to mess up. They do have a full bar which is great. Biggest downside was that is was about 85 degrees in the restaurant. Very warm.

Stopped based on local recommendation as a good place for New Mexican Green Chile. And they were right. Helpful staff, cold beer on tap.

A reasonable spot to eat. One of the group had a steak and I had fish. Interesting paintings on the walls by the booth.

Thank you, Roy!! Very cool decor and classic New Mexico feel. They will even come pick you up if you want to have a few drinks to avoid drinking and driving. Great hospitality!

We had really good food and service at this place. One person had the fish tacos and another had the stuffed sopapilla. Just the right spice to get us accustomed a little southwestern spice. And the ambiance was very nice, too, with some very realistic murals--ask the staff about them!

This place was recommended by the Owners of The Blue Swallow Motel. Loved the mural inside! Friendly and laid back. We wanted a place to stretch our legs and get a small bite to eat. The nachos were really good and I had the "Blue Swallow" margarita - Yum!

We stopped here on a trip to Arizona for dinner. I enjoyed the tamales with green chile sauce and my sister had a burger with sweet potato fries. Be sure to ask for the chips and salsa and sopaipilla if you choose one of the Mexican entrees(free on request). My tamale was good, although a bit on the spicy side... More
