We stopped in for lunch. Our first impression was how very loud it was, and it was even that crowded. Horrible acoustics. Our meals were bland, very little flavor. This is barely mexican food. We will not return and will not recommend this to anyone....More

Great service, our waiter was very attentive. The food was good, not the best Mexican food, but still good. Good children's menu. Worth a try if you are in Apache Junction.

Colorful restaurant with better than average Mexican cuisine. As locals, we visit every 6 weeks or so. Grilled vegetable cheese crisp is good if you prefer your vegetables not soft. Carne asada is a favorite also. Maragritas are very good! The ambiance is rather loud...More

We ate at this restaurant three times over the winter season. Rice was always undercooked, crunchy and tasteless. Bean were always dry like paste. Taquitos were over cooked and the chicken and beef were dried out. The burritos were good and adequate portion size. Service...More

I have to admit that I'm not feeling too good about writing this poor review for an apparently popular local establishment. I have eaten here several times and the service is generally good, but the quality of the food is truly sub par (American-ized) 'Mexican'...More

Green corn tamale was excellent, accompanied by poblano rice. Pretty good flan too. Couldn't be happier. Outside patio great for an early April evening.

The best part, was that the Cores Light was cold. Chips were tasteless. Salsa was fine. But who cares at this point? Service was WITHOUT flair. There was a hostess that looked like a mix between Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande.
