I've visited several times, but this time I wasn't impressed. The sour cream chipotle chicken enchiladas were lacking....we make better sauces at home. I may be spoiled by Chuy's in Texas, but surely they can do better.

While vacationing, we always seek out a Diner, Drive In or Drive recommended by Guy Fieri fom Food Network. And once again, this one didn't disappoint. The food came out quickly, accurate and piping hot. Tacos, burritos and the rice and beans were fabulous. We also really loved the salsa bar, which had 1/2 dozen different salsas to go with... More

Service excellent, food consistently good. They make a great chili relleno. Chips have to be ordered separately.

I believe the owner owns this and Fat Olives, and they do this cuisine MUCH better than Fat Olives. Definitely a place we frequent when going out to eat. Great service, fresh food, and awesome salsa bar!

We are from Texas and I guess we were used to chips being part of the service. So it was a bit of a shock that the chips were charged per basket. Odd being a salsa restaurant. But the food was just ok. Nothing exciting. It was a crowded night but our server was nice and helpful. Would try something... More

If you don't go here, you've missed the best Mexican food!!! This is our fifth year coming to ski in Flagstaff. And every time we come this is our first stop. And we always come more than once. This time we've been here two nights out of four. We tried another spot downtown, one night, and was unimpressed, and left... More

I was a little disappointed that chips didn't come free- you could pay for a chip basket and unlimited salsa bar, but I think you had to keep paying for each additional chip basket. The cheese enchilada was really good, but the fish taco was very fishy, I couldn't eat more than 1 bite. My husband got the pork burrito... More

Excellent Mexican menu, expertly prepared. Fantastic salsa bar. Great fajita salad - very filling. We eat at least one meal here every time we visit Flagstaff. Great for kids too with crayons and paper placements. It can be a bit busy at peak evenings, so lunch is better if you want a quiet booth.

We've had mixed experiences over the years here, although this trip was a positive experience overall. We received good food, but service was slower than average for this type of restaurant. On top, they recently added a bill surcharge of about 15% to respond to a new Arizona minimum wage law. I would recommend this place relative to other Flagstaff... More
