This is a family place. Lots to chose from. Great huevos rancheros. They even have steak and baked potato. Full bar. I think they offer a lunch buffette. I have been going there for years. This is the best owner by far. Clean. Good choices. Lots of parking and some outdoor dining too!

We have been eating at Las Trankas for 9 years. We have never had a bad meal. The service is great too.

Lots of great Mexican food, excellent flan for desert and much fun. We had such a large (30-40)group, we had most of the restaurant to our group. We've been here before and gets better each time.

Sunday morning breakfast has been a long time ritual for my wife and myself. Residing in Southern AZ we decided to try Las Trankas as a place to add to our "places to go to".There was plenty of wait staff but the service was nothing exceptional. The food portions were a bit skimpy for the price and taste wise it... More

The food is really good here. I go at least once month. The environment and the staff are nice. I met the owner in one of the visits and she was really nice. I like that it is an authentic Mexican restaurant.

The food was moderately good, but good enough. Rice needed a little salt. Good for a pinch for basic Mexican food.

Recommended on Yelp with 4.5 stars. OK. The meats were delicious, the servings were generous, the waitress was lovely. Sadly I don't know what can be done about the grease found in the flautist and tacos which were fried. I would go here again but avoid the fried items. The gorditas and tostadas were great.

I have had breakfast and dinner here and highly recommend. The Machaca either in the morning with eggs, or at night is some of the best around. Always a very good meal at Las Trankas
