My husband and I recently stopped here on our road trip across country and it became our favorite meal of the trip. Staff was extremely accommodating, friendly, and generous. We both ordered Navajo Tacos and were not disappointed. Very delicious, generous portions - I could not finish mine, despite arriving quite hungry. Host brought us variety of salsas and samples to try, as well as dessert - all included with our meal. Highly recommend!

We had the whole back room for our daughters' baby shower totaling about 40 persons. The food was delicious and the service provided by Ammee and Luticia was excellent!
This is a great place for a large gathering and they let us decorate how we wanted and they cleaned it all up afterwards.

Chips and salsa --- tough chewy heavy salted chips with a base of tomatoe paste sauce and some green chili thrown in --/ the worse """salsa""" I've ever tasted

Ordered the Navajo Tacos
Was excited they served them ! But alas the fry bread was so tough you couldn't cut it with a knife, some whole beans and their juice was poured in a disgusting mess on top of the "fake" fry bread
Sticking the fry bread (might have been a baked piece of old pita bread) to the place, perhaps in an attempt to soften it up. A Mess of unseasoned ground beef was dropped on top and hidden under some soggy shredded lettuce. Totally tasteless and completely inedible

My dining partner ordered the special luncheon fish tacos ... which was just ONE small room Scott for. 7.50, and was a breaded but unseasoned fish stick hidden under yet another mess of shredded lettuce with a flavorous drippy sauce soaking the soggy flour tortilla. Horrible and also inedible

Followed by a thick (not light and airy ) sopapilla , consisting of hard chewy dough served cold at the start of the meal

Service and food very slow
Had to ask several times to get drink refills

PASS THIS PLACE BY ... its horrible

Papa Felipe's really bent over backward for me. They sat me down and brought me samples. Garlicky guacamole. Pinto beans with such flavor! Fajitas to die for! The food was outstanding and tasted authentically MEXICAN not NEW Mexican, which is what I wanted. The manager, Trini, was so nice, I HAD TO reward her with my business. She deserved it. This is how you do business, folks. Now I know why they consistently win "Best of the City" in their category. Can't wait for my party in two days. I'm treating my guests right.
