Great food and margaritas. Service was a bit slow, but I think a big table was hogging all the attention. Rather warm in there.

I have been going to El Encanto since 1991 and in all that time I've never had a meal that was anything less than stellar. probably the nicest atmosphere for any restaurant in the entire Valley. I never get tired of going to this quirky, ramshackle building that is like being transported to another world away from all the cookie cutter corporate restaurants that dot the Valley. And this is one of the few places that has Pollo con Molé...and it is muy delicioso! More...

Kids loved seeing the turtles! I had the Pollo fundito and I was not disappointed! The rice was amazing! I mixed it with my fundito sauce. It blew my mind! Server was friendly and attentive. The boss man also showed he cared. He came around and asked everyone how they were doing. I will return. I need to try some deserts! More...

Though we have been there before, this time was different and absolutely amazing!My wife and I came in during dinner rush and only had to wait about 5 minutes, the hostess was very friendly and made us feel welcome immediately. Once seated, our salsa and chips were out almost instantly as well as fresh out of the kitchen still warm. What truly made this trip different was our server Wendy, she was prompt, friendly and ready to converse about anything. As always, I asked what her favorite dish was and without hesitation she said the Carne Asada Renelle, which is exactly what I was thinking of so it was a no brainer.The food came out quick, hot and absolutely delicious. I can't say enough about our server Wendy though, TOP NOTCH!!! More...

Cave Creek only location I've visited. Have the beef fajitas! Mesquite smoked meat chunks. Addicted. Hope they unmurk the pond - getting so green animals don't want to be there. Huge portions! Sit either outside or beside one of the big windows. And say hi to my rusty Senior boyfriend! There used to be three - other two must have followed off some strange women! If pond was fixed, would be spectacular - lots of green by entry. More...

Food was excellent. Ordered appetizer of guacamole. Portion was good and it was flavorful. Had the steak fajitas for dinner. The steak was very tender and seasoned well. Service was excellent as well and the view from our table out the window was an added bonus. After dinner we were also able to go out and feed their resident ducks. Will definitely go back next time I'm in town. More...

First time visiting. Had their special of carnitas poblano relleno. It was fantastic. The guacamole we got as an appetizer was also good but I thought it had too many extras added. Margaritas we had were also very good. They had live music too and the guitar player was great by adding to the ambience. More...

I would have licked the plate, but people were already looking at me weird because of the noises of satisfaction I was emitting, so I managed to restrain myself a little. The tamale appetizer was great, and the mole was one of the best I have had north of the border. More...

Food is pretty good for what you pay. The location may creep up on you if you haven't been here before as you are doing 50mpg before you realize the sign and the turn in. Don't go here often due to the price but food isn't horrible. Depending on the day the wait may be a little delayed for service. More...

This is a restaurant relatively near our home and a pleasant change for the typical around this area. Being a vegan there's very little for me to eat but their Spanish rice is delicious very very authentic and their beans are okay. My husband and I typically share a meal as being a diabetic he can't eat rice no beans and I as a vegan don't eat any sort of meat product at cetera so again if you're looking for some authenticities my vote is go there.

Excellent food, generous portions, good service only negative is the noise. In order to hear your party, you must yell. High ceilings with limited wall coverings means sound level is approaching jet engine levels during rush times. Go at off peak hours and u won't be disappointed. More...

Our favorite Mexican restaurant! Love the Cadillac and nasty margaritas. My husband and I always get our tamales fix with the one green/one red combo. I’ve never been disappointed with anything I’ve chosen off the menu or off the Sunday brunch buffet. And did I mention they have mimosas on special Sundays?! More...

My husband and I have been in AZ for almost a year and constantly in search of great Mexican food. We were shopping in Cave Creek on Saturday and stopped in for lunch. We were blown away! Amazing food, margaritas were great and the service was fantastic. We had stopped in during the winter and it was too packed to even get a drink, but in the summer, there was plenty of room! The atmosphere was awesome, nice and cool inside, we can't wait to go back!! More...

My husband and I, along with my brother, had a delightful time dining at the Cave Creek location this past Tuesday evening. Tyler, our waiter, Devon, our hostess, and Serge, the manager, were all so personable and attentive. The tasty Cadillac margaritas went down quite easily and the food was hot, delicious, and plentiful. I opted to have the Camarrones Coktel appetizer as part of my main meal and the serving that came in a large martini/margarita glass was ginormous! Sabroso! And if all of that wasn't enough, the interior of the restaurant with the little lake in the center open to the sky, populated by turtles and various waterfowl made our visit a truly enchanted one. Bravo! More...

Wife and I found this place back in the 90s and everybody who comes out to visit us we try and take them to El Encanto and always recommend Pollo fundido was there on Sunday 3-18-18 had a short wait of 30 to 40 minutes love the atmosphere here and so do my guests, I just wish that they would open the back bar so it's not so hard to grab a beer and stand in the front area waiting for table. Or perhaps put a temporary bar in catering area as to not crowd the bar More...

Had an excellent experience today. I've been coming here for years and I think it's actually improved from 2 years ago! The female manager today was exceptional for several reasons. First she was kind and looked professional, you could tell she was a manager (or owner , but you could tell she cares) . Second, one of the bussers was told to clean the windows by the pond, not only did she nicely ask him but she SHOWED him the correct way to do it. It's rare to find managers that show employees what to do vs. Just telling them. Although the busser was grunting and seemed frustrated moving chairs almost throwing them around very loudly to clean the windows, our table was cleared quickly. The rice is exceptional. One suggestion is to have cholula, Cholula is the #1 used hot sauce in the state of AZ and everywhere you go has it. Next suggestion is my wife ordered the burrito platter and it came out with the burro,rice and beans. Inside was carne asada and pico and some cheese. We were surprised how dry it was and expected sour cream to be included. but this was easily fixed by ordering a side of guac and sour cream for 5$extra for (both) , Anyways , it was a great experience today.
