Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A Holbrook staple, this spot never disappoints! I have eaten here on three separate occasions over the past six years, and the quality of the food and the service has withstood the test of time! The enchiladas, tamales and salsa are all great! I will...continue to frequent this establishment on future road trips. highly recommend!More

Excellent Ma & Pa restaurant with scratch made local food. The interior decor consists of thousands of hanging antiques. I have eaten here for 30 years!

We stopped in for dinner on a Thursday night, and there was one other couple in the restaurant. There are tons of junk on the walls and around the front room. The food was ok. The plates weren’t huge, but sufficient to fill us up....The best part was the sopapillas with honey that came with our meals. The service was good.More

We had dinner. Asked for hot salsa, and it was the best. The rest of the food we ordered was average. The decor was quirky and neat, probably typical Route 66 kitsch. Our server was the best.

Very unique place. The wait staff was friendly and the Mexican food was delicious. Glad we stopped in for a late lunch. It's a small place and it has lots of memorabilia with a display of jewelry and other stuff for sale. Cool place to...visit.More

Stopped by for a late lunch on way to Petrified Forest. Had the chimichanga and it was mediocre at best. Very disappointed with this stop. Service was fine.

We went in late (after 8pm) on a Sunday night. Lots of history on the walls. The menu is a hoot. You can take the funny part home for 25 cents. The food was fine. If you want fancy, and bright, go to Denny's. Mr....Maestas is a nice stop off the interstate. Take it easy (Winslow is just down the road if you have to stand on the corner with Glenn) for awhile. Relax. Very enjoyable stop.More

The decor was fun and the service was friendly. The food was mediocre at best, took quite a while to come out and didn’t taste homemade. However the sopapias were homemade and delicious and an added bonus to the meal that was unexpected.
