    If you are looking for authentic Southwestern cuisine, this is the place in Scottsdale. Large portions, so bring your appetite. Open for lunch and dinner.

    Awesome spot! Some of the servers are rude - so request Oscar! They are pretty strict about no substitutions and requests, which sucks. Try the brochettes, filet mignon ques & sandwiches!!

    The lobster enchiladas are amazing! If you come after 10pm, though, the raspberry chipotle wings are the best thing on the menu. Try both and you won't regret it!

    One of the worst places I have ate at in Phoenix. Ordered the potstickers and all I could taste was soy sauce, trio enchilladas drowning in bland sauce that covers the taste of the delicate proteins.
