As its name so aptly suggests, this cafe opened almost two decades ago as the Ahwatukee's first Mexican eatery. It offers a full menu of Sonoran-style cuisine, from breakfast through dinner. Here you will find a comfortable, family style atmosphere and decor with colorful south-of-the-border accents. Burros (larger than burritos), tacos and platillos (plates with meat, rice, beans and condiments) are prepared using authentic recipes.

The usual pub-style food is available with burgers, sandwiches and snacks. A few Sonoran-style Mexican entrees (burritos, tacos) are also offered. A fairly good tequila list and a wide range of beers will satisfy your thirst.
