tlacuanimexicanrestaurant.com Great authentic Mexican Restaurant! Plenty of parking, with outside seating and two bars. Food was excellent and the decor reminded me of the restaurants in Puerto Penasco. Service was good too.

Had the $ 7 lunch special chicken enchilada. Everything was dry: rice, beans & enchilada could have used a lot more sauce. Chicken was mostly dark meat. Odd salsa, more like chow chow & odd dip served with tortilla chips. Just OK.

Great prices, plenty of food, nice atmosphere. 4 meals, 4 beers, 4 desserts only 100 dollars, not bad. I liked that the 1 tv i saw was not the focus of the resturant.
