This is a pretty place, built in Tlaquepaque-style to look like an old hacienda. It has an impressively-ambitious menu. The chips were good. The beer was cold.
Unfortunately, that's the end of the positives. The salsa was bottled, ands not even good bottled. My wife ordered a Jose Cuervo margarita; she said it was terrible.
We asked the pleasant, helpful waitress for her favorites. Shrimp fajitas and chicken-avocado soup, she said. We ordered both. The soup was decent, but marred by big chunks of cheepo canned tomatoes. The shrimp were OK. The tortillas were stale; the guacomole, inedibly bad.
They have a flamenco guitarist in the bar a couple nights a week. He sounded pretty good, so this might be a good place for a drink. But eat somewhere else!
Now the PLEA: has anyone here found a decent Mexican restaurant in the Verde Valley? Allegedly, Su Casa in Clarkdale is the best, and it's mediocre or worse. If you like it, what do you order?
