    I will never understand why this restaurant gets good reviews regarding the food. Worst mexican food I have ever had! The cheese crisp was served completely burnt, black on the entire bottom and the top edges on the top were black! The server asks when I show her this, is the entire cheese crisp burnt? Would you like me to get you a new one? Really? I ordered a frozen margarita with salt, I got a margarita on the rocks with no salt. My son's fish tacos had a strip of fish on purple shredded cabbage no sause nothing else on them. He traded them for the carnitas tacos and they were so salty he had to return those, as did I with mine. The second cheese crisp came out just a little less burnt. The tortilla was so thin it was apt to burn and we couldn't eat that. The manager did come out and stated he would take care of the dinner. And was polite. But, I wouldn't have paid for a meal I couldn't eat. When the server brought the check it showed double charges for everything that was sent back and never eaten. They said their machine is strange the way it prints. They charged for the 1 margarita and 1 mohito, which I had no problem with, but also charged for the 2 cokes we had. Charging for the sodas when you say you are taking care of the meal was quite ridiculous. But somehow you thought that was necessary, lol. Last, I live in the area and have for many years and I have never had mexican food this bad before. Taco bell is an Upgrade! Your cook needs some cooking lessons! I'm pretty sure the reason this restaurant does well is because many people were in there enjoying cocktails and congregating. The rest of the people going to this restaurant are most likely tourists, being that this restaurant is right in the middle of Oldtown Scottsdale. LAST, YOU DON'T GET CHIPS AND SALSA AT THIS RESTAURANT UNLESS YOU ORDER THEM FOR A FEE. GO TO LOS OLIVIAS MEXICAN DOWN THE STREET. THAT IS WONDERFUL FOOD AND WELL WORTH IT! THIS PLACE IS AWFUL!

    This was just what we were looking for: great food, affordable pricing (versus some of the resort pricing), excellent cocktails, and right downtown. We’ll be back!

    Food was very good and reasonably priced. Though the bar was slow, our waiter Todd was very attentive and answered a lot of questions. We were originally seated on the patio downstairs but asked to be moved to the balcony. Friendliness of the hostesses was the only thing lacking. Overall a very nice experience.

    We always eat here when we are in Scottsdale. I have found the fajita bowl, which I have with carnitas, is a good lunch meal. My husband has the three tacos which he enjoys. He usually has the diablo shrimp, chicken and mahi mahi but they didn’t have the mahi mahi this time so he had the battered shrimp instead. We each have a margarita: a Pom berry and a skinny Rita. All was great. The service was attentive and efficient as usual. Price is good; good value. We will return.

    I always enjoy visiting old town Scottsdale to eat or go through the shops, and hadn’t been there before. I brought my cousin, who was in from out of town. I’m glad i made a reservation, as it was busy and loud, so I’m glad I had asked to sit outside. The food was good, but the portions were small. The waiter couldn’t have been more inattentive. We were one of two occupied tables, yet it took fifteen minutes to get more than the menu. He then attended to newly seated patrons, and asked them for their order, before he thought of even bringing our drinks,never mind take our order. I don’t think he stopped by once , after bringing the food, until he brought the check. The menu had a lot of choices, that went beyond your basic tacos and burritos, but the tacos seemed happy hour sized, and all portions in general , were small. The margarita list was great, but I’d likely not go there again except for happy hour. I’d recommend reservations, regardless of happy hour or a meal.

    We liked this place. The food was good and our favorite was the Queso Verde. It was really good. The tacos were ok, I think the fish taco needs a dressing on the slaw and the option to have grilled fish vs fried fish.
