Old gasoline station made in as a quick Mexican diner. You order at a counter and take your food to an eating area. Food very good and has good Mexican food. Avoid noon hour because locals, firemen and police eat here.

I returned again recently and had an entirely different experience. I had a long wait. The Chili Rellano was disgusting this time. Chili had no batter and was stuffed with scrambled eggs and chicken. Really GROSS. When I bought it to their attention they claimed "That's how they always made it" and could care less that they had an unhappy... More

Had the Chicken Chile Relleno, and it was very good. Beans and rice came along too. Killer green Salsa. No decor but great food.

My son and I enjoy this restaurant. We would dine there more often if it had a waiter/waitress. The menu is very extensive and everything we've ordered has been great. If you dine in, you won't get free beverage refills, either.

Snowflake AZ is an out of the way town located in the White Mountains. It is worth going there just to eat at El Cupdio's. You order your own food, it comes on a paper plate, the seating is haphazard at best, BUT...you will find a way to return to this place that looks like an old Circle K on... More

The food is really very good for such a small place. Portions are large and service is fast. It's on the top of the list for places to eat in Taylor-Snowflake. Friendly service. When I do eat out I usually Choose El Cupidos.

Seriously, the story goes, that it started out as a gas station as the pumps are still there. As business grew for the little Mexican counter...they bought out the gas station and wa la.....very good food. We were therein a Friday night and got the next to the last order of fall off the bone ribs for $12.50. I can't... More
