    This 60-year-old mainstay is perhaps the most iconic Mexican restaurant in the Valley, where big, cheesy plates and blended margaritas are the name of the game. Read more

    Get the Burrito Empanada hybrid! Filled with your choice of meat, along with refried beans before it's fried, this beast is then topped with salsa, cheese, guacamole, and sour cream. Read more

    Looking for sexy simple and downright good found it. Enjoy the dimly lit dining room and indulge in any number if great dishes. Guac and ritas are on point.

    Great margaritas. The blended coconut is amazing. But the hostess staff is less than friendly and the food isn't anything to rave about. I can get better Mexican food in Tennessee.

    Happy 55th year Ray Vega! The booths are so dark it's best to sit up front by the bar. Don't forget to order the carnitas and cheese enchilada/chicken taco combo plate while you're at it.

    Their new Sunday Bloody Mary cart is awesome. Best Bloody Mary I've had... Cucumbers, Olives, Celery, Peperoncini's... Mmm👍. (Service much friendlier Sundays too!)

    I like this place and the food is decent, but wow is it expensive! For 2 people having Mexican food with only one alcohol drink still end up paying almost $100 bucks!

    Great atmosphere, the food not so great. I had the avocado salad, lots of iceberg lettuce. The vinaigrette dressing was horrible. A cross between French and vinaigrette dressing. Yuck!

    Ambiance is nice, but food has gone to hell. Been coming here for 20+ years, but something has changed. Food is just not that good. Waiters are inattentive. Frequently get served the wrong thing.

    Over-hyped, average food - expensive for what you get. Mediocre service. But, did see a movie star while dining. Tortilla soup is better at Baja Fresh.
