The restaurant has opened a 2nd establishment in Richfield, UT, on Cove View Rd at the old Pepperbelly location. It's great to have a good Mexican restaurant now in Richfield. Had the chili rellenos and they were fantastic. Service was good and the atmosphere is conducive to having a conversation. It's the definite place to go for great Mexican food... More

Didn't expect good Mexican food here. We were just driving back from San Felipe Mexico via Family in CA. This was our first stop.

After a long day on the road, we found ourselves at Richfield Utah. We checked TripAdvisor to find what was around and were surprised to find that the five-star dining facilities for driving restaurants and fast food joints. We felt like having a bit more of a sitdown meal, so we visited this establishment. The servers and hostesses were friendly... More

Pulled in here because the sign on the interstate said going east bound next Services 114 miles. That's a pretty good reason to stop and eat. Lots of cars parked in front of this place so I thought why not, and I wasn't disappointed. Good authentic Mexican food and more than I could eat and I'm not a little guy.... More

it was a standard Mexican small town place, run by people of Mexican descent. Except for the surly big gal that seated me that despite my best efforts I could not get her to smile, the rest of the staff was friendly and awesome! Food was good! I will be back when I come back to town!

Just a short walk from our hotel, fairly quiet when we went to dinner. Food was good basic Mexican fare. Great they served beer as well, but only bottled. Handy if you don't want to drive into town.

This was pretty average food and service. For a small town it was nice to have Mexican food as an option for dinner. The service was average... a busy night, but we could have had better service. The portions were fairly average size. Dinner was priced from about $8.99- $15.99,

We were staying at a nearby hotel and this restaurant was convenient. The food was fabulous and large portions were served. We are from Texas and this rivals and TexMex restaurant we have tried in Texas. Good Job! Would recommend.

Outside of the touristy "Gateway" towns to Utah's national parks, southern Utah can have slim pickings for locally-owned (non-chain) restaurants, open on a Sunday, that even serve beer. This hit the sweet spot on our return from a mountain biking adventure near Escalante. While I prefer a little local micro-brew, I'll settle for a cold Corona or Dos Equis under... More
