We stayed at Heat Hotel and this was just a walk across the parking lot. On a Friday night there were people waiting for tables. We waited about 15 minutes and was surprised when we were seated how many empty tables there were. That was not cool in my book. The food was decent and the service so-so. We didn't... More

We stopped in for drinks and queso. The huckleberry margarita was very tasty and refreshing. Didn't end up having queso but the chips and salsa were good.

I'm sure it wasn't typical but our experience was not good on the day we dined. The food was delicious but service painfully slow. Our server seemed to abandon us for long periods of time. well over 30 minutes to get our food while others around us who arrived after were eating. Once we had our food nobody came back... More

We lunched during a day at Lake Havasu City. The taco salad was very good, the "hot" salsa VERY hot and good but the catfish relleno was disappointing. FAR too much breading which as a consequence smothered the catfish. The "featured" margarita was the same price as any other day; not sure what featured meant. Waitress was new but interested...

Okay, our main motivation was that one dollar taco night Wednesday was booked and we had it in our heads to eat there, so we went the next night. We did the two and three item combos, chile relleno (not fried crispy, very unusual), enchiladas, tostadas and burrito, all very flavorful. What wasn't flavorful and was even bland was the... More
