The food was good and the service was good. We will go there again. It's a small place with a relaxed atmosphere, feels like a family owned operation.

I am a Texan that loves good Mexican food and loves to try different variations of the cuisine. I had never had guacamole with pomegranate seeds before and was game to try, yet apprehensive. Glad I did as the ingredients worked well together and was quite tasty. I had the mole chicken enchiladas with both dark/red mole. Yum. Very heavy/rich though. My husband enjoyed the pork tacos pibil. I have never seen bread/olive tapenade served in lieu of chips/salsa; while good, I missed the chips/salsa. My margarita was fair. Overall a delicious dinner.

I loved the bread with the olive spread. Ordered the enchiladas , pork tacos, and the stuffed pepper with pomegranate was sooo good. they were all amazing. A must try if in the Phoenix area.

I have never been a big fan of enchiladas as I tend to prefer fajitas or quesadillas. However, the enchiladas description seemed so appealing I couldn’t resist. These were absolutely exquisitely tasty!!! My husband had the torta and he enjoyed this as well. It was the best Mexican meal we have had in Arizona. A bit pricey but a great experience. Service was great and I highly recommend this restaurant

Chose to visit on a recent for my husband’s birthday. Really delicious, authentic Mexican food & drinks served in a quaint low level building. Outside is covered in wonderful murals, making the restaurant hard to miss.
Worth it for a trip to the eclectic restroom!
Great place, nice atmosphere and delightful dishes.
