Phoenix New Times' Description

A real gem when it comes to authentic Mexican fare in the Valley.

    This place ROCKS! Try the Chicken Mole Enchiladas, the Chicken Rellenos or the Shrimp Rellenos. Best chips n salsa too. Love that it's a real locals place no gringo Mex slop. :)

    Amazingly good, chicken chile rellenos, chicken mole enchiladas, chorizo and eggs and the tamarindo margarita...my suggestions!

    Grab a booth, order a chile mango margarita, then select any item from the menu. You are sure to be satisfied.

    Their green chili is the best in town! Get the burro enchilada style with green chili, amazing!

    Lots of spice and flavor for everyone from natives to gringos. My faves here are the menudo (rojo) and the green chile burro enchilada style. Homemade chips, salsa & guac are the perfect prequel.
