Highly disappointing. Upon arrival was told that there was a “glitch” in our reservation and the only seating available was outside. Manager apologized before we were seated and provided $5 off our bill for the mixup. Table outside was not wiped down and birds visited prior to our seating. We wiped the table down ourselves. Server never check on us for refills. Food was ok, but the rice seems to be reheated, it’s not fresh. Had to ask other staff for drink refills and the check, with the response, “ I’ll tell your server.” Server did show up to provide the bill. Patron Beware! Upon receiving our bill tip was preselected. I had to check it myself. Pity, place had promise but fell well short.

Last minute trip created challenges in finding reservations in Old Town Scottsdale, so was glad to find this option. Ambience (indoor/outdoor seating) was pleasant, menu options good for value, excellent housemade guac. Service was a bit rushed and impersonal, but overall enjoyed the meal.

The service was not great. I had to tell her I wanted to order an appetizer and dessert.

The restaurant was not at capacity but drinks took forever. The pineapple tequila was delicious though.

Way too many TV screens for my taste, but the food is excellent, especially the fresh guacamole, topped with pomegranate seeds for an interesting twist, and the ceviche. We loved our jalapeño/cucumber margaritas as well. Many of the wait staff were not wearing masks, which made me a bit uncomfortable as a tourist, but other diners didn't seem to mind.

The prickly pear margarita was good but the tacos were bland and basic. Our tortillas were over soaked in oil (I think?) as they were tough and hard to chew through... Service was good!

Not very happy this time. The reason is exactly 3 small pieces of steak that came with the fajitas. Really?? I understand cutbacks but this is ridiculous. Also had to return the plate of cheese as it was all melted left under heat lamps. Not a good experience.

Happy Hour is a great value, lots of appetizers half price and $6 Margarita's. The food is delicious and lots of choice. This is not a fancy place, but don't be fooled by the simple decor, it is a great place for Mexican fare.
