Nacho Tequilas

Went for lunch with work associates. All ordered off the lunch menus. The decor is nice with full bar. Staff friendly and efficient. Not what I would consider lunch portions. They were huge but so tasty could not quit eating. Huge tasty lunch for under $10. Looks like they have a good happy hour specials. Plan on giving it a try.

Service was very fast and friendly. I had the fajitas with chorizo, chicken, and steak. So flavorful! The kids loved the topping bar for their ice cream. The only thing we didn't care for was the guacamole.

We were here last Friday the 8th... There were six of us and we were starving... The chips and salsa are top notch... One of our group had been there several times, and encouraged us to try the food... In fact, the waiter called both he and his wife by name... The food was hot and quick and tasty... The person in our group that had been there previously, asked what was NOT on the menu... The chef prepared something for him on the spot... Great service, genuinely appreciated our business and treated us well... This restaurant is staying on the top of our go to list...

El Rodeo Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By Randy K

Writing my review now overseas of my most recent visit in April has me craving Mexican food, and there arguably isn't better in Des Moines.Salsa and chips are fresh. Service is fast. Restaurant is clean, and best of all, is the fresh delicious food. I've never had a bad meal here. Wish they had a restaurant further west in town.

Mazatlan Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By Mike T

Joined a friend to visit and have a bite. We shared the beef nachos, a generous portion - flavorful and delicious. Their complimentary salsa is so good - we included that with each bite. Service was fantastic - constantly refilling our drinks - and bringing salsa. A perfect little lunch! Looking forward to trying more items.

El Barco Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By Beavercowboy

I stopped at El Barco for lunch last Wednesday. Even though the lot was full of cars, I was seated immediately. My waitress was at my table in two minutes (tops). I ordered the Burrito Fiesta and iced tea. My meal and drink was on the table within 10-minutes. That was just the right amount of time for me to enjoy some corn chips and ice cold homemade salsa. The burrito was good as was the rice and beans. All-in-all, it was a good lunch with great service....about $9.00. This is a good “locals place” and certainly worth a try. I’m glad I did.

El Mariachi

I brought my sons here to eat and watch football (in the bar area) and we were most impressed. Two loaded plates of food arrived at our table just for me. I’d ordered the Vegetarian Fajita. Great pina colada and flan, too. Super fast service for a Saturday afternoon. Friendly wait staff and really cheap prices.

Monterrey Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By BrianGongol

Monterrey in Clive has three things going for it:1. The food is always delicious (I swear by the Guadalajara Special).2. Service is fast and friendly (rarely more than about five minutes from order to hot food on the table).3. The prices are perfectly reasonable (dinner out with the family never comes close to breaking the bank, and the portions are huge).You're guaranteed to leave with a full belly and a smile on your face.

Very good service. I love their spice sauce and the melon margarita. Good prices. I didn't like the chile verde pork, had a lot of fat couldn't eat it at all. Besides that, the rest was very good. I tried the blackberry margarita was good too.
