Clean and friendly with a nice subdued Mexican decor. Adequate parking out front. I have been here a few times during my stay in Wickenburg, and the meals have been of consistently good quality, and reasonable priced. I do recommend this nice little place.

First time in to this place and I would definitely go back. Service was prompt , place was clean. I had the taco salad with chunks of chicken. Others had burritos and enchiladas. They all said it was great.

Stopped for dinner after a round of golf at Los Caballeros with friends. First time we've eaten here and our friends were telling of how the good food was. We were not disappointed.

So this little roadside restaurant in Wickenburg is rated as "number 2" in that area. I have to sort of ask why? We visited based on TripAdvisor's reviews. And in this case we were disappointed. First, while it did not appear to be overly busy we found the 'service' to be a bit short, not at all personable and, over... More

Our first experience here and we went based on other reviewers. Clean exterior with help wanted signs in the windows. We asked the waitress what the favorite dishes were and she explained they were in RED on the menu and that everything was MILD. Tried a house margarita, not bad, pretty limey. They brought 3 types of salsa and warned... More
