We had a group of 11 that came down specifically to eat here. We walked across the border and grabbed 3 cabs. The vehicles were clean and the drivers polite, even though they did not speak English. We arrived at the restaurant and were seated shortly, it was probably around 2 pm. Everyone ordered something different I think and all... More

They started with a little glass of some hot, spicy drink then chips and salsa, great! Margaritas were wonderful. We had tenderloin steaks on nopales with a chili sauce, to die for! Just the right heat. They finished us up with a little after dinner Kahlua frothy thing. We also had some soft drinks. The bill, with tip, for 3... More

Slow start in Tucson and a delay at the border so we were hungry when we got to Nogales on the Mexican side. Our trip hosts had pre-planned a stop at El Marcos and it proved to be a good choice. I had an excellent asparagus soup. It was asparagus season and asparagus was as present on dinner plates as... More

Very classy place where the waiter makes the salsa at your table and ask you how spicy you want it the couple next to me was having a seafood dish prepared tableside flambe and the prices were incredibly reasonable for a restaurant that gave you basically White Glove service

I really like this restaurant. Its near a "mall" and conveniently located off of the main drag. The food is well prepared and the clientele are on the upper echelon. It can get quite noisy, but then again what can one expect when the tequila and liquor flows?? it is NOT a bar, it is a classy cantina

I visit this restaurant at least once a month, I look for Leonardo (waiter) he prepares the best tequila shrimp and is always on top of things but that is nothing special for them, all waiters have great communication that is why they have one of the best service along with very good food

One of the best restaurants in Nogales, all the dishes are really tasty, if you are not satisfied with a small amount of food ask for a "Media Vaca". Chicken and Fish are equally good. 4 because it's a little expensive.

Worth the trip over the border. Just pick up a taxi once you cross over, have the waiter call a taxi after your meal. Fun place, great food and service.
