Ranked #121 of 365 Restaurants in Flagstaff
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 4, 2018

We hadn't even gotten into the restaurant yet when we knew we were in the right place because, as we were walking in, a couple was exiting and blurted out with a big smile, "If this is your first time here, you are going to love it. The food is amazing. We are so happy!" If that's not the best, unprompted endorsement, I don't know what is. And they were right. We loved it and had a wonderful evening with friends.

The restaurant staff is wonderful and overly attentive. In fact, five people came to our table to welcome and serve us in the first few minutes of sitting down... the hostess, the server, the waitress, a second waiter to check on us and the manager to say hello! The atmosphere is fun, festive and authentic Mexico. All of the booths were imported from Guadalajara and are painted bright colors with a different Mexican scene painted in each booth. For drinks, you can pick from the longest list of Tequilas that I've ever seen. And all of the food we ordered was excellent.

Like so many others before us, we stumbled into this little gem! Outside looks so unassuming, but inside is a delight of atmosphere and ambience! The lunches we ordered were served promptly and tasted delish! I would absolutely look for this place next time we're in town!

We stumbled on this location and were very happy we did. The service was good even though it was late at night and they were almost closing. We did not feel rushed. The portions were huge. I enjoyed the fish tacos. We were amazed at the guacamole. Yummm.

Great little hole in the wall we stumbled into. Good food and atmosphere. If I'm ever here again will definitely go there.
