A diner from Phoenix, AZ gave an overall rating of 1  out of 5 stars on May 13, 2009 @ 11:51 PM

 My family and I dined there tonight and the food was OK. HOWEVER, the host/manager for the night was not welcoming. Upon arrival and following a request for a booth away from the bar his SARCASTIC comment to us was "sure, we can seat you back there (indicating a booth toward the rear of the main seating area) but the waiter will have to walk further to serve you". I replied that "I didn't realize we would be having dinner and sarcasim tonight", his reply was "sometimes". Is this how Ajo Al's trains their employees to treat their customers? Although we've eaten there before I'm not eager to recommend them to anyone or to visit them again.

 This is the place we have measured others for 10 years regarding getting good bang for the buck! Tasty, value, good service, excellent maggies (with decent booze in them), good chips/salsa. Try the Pizza Nortenia - this has made many believers with people we have taken there. For a light, excellent, but huge and good value salad - try the Salad Carbon (pronounced carb - on).

Los Reyes De La Torta  5  out of 5 stars
 Very good food at a great price. Authentic, clean and great service. And as a bonus honest workers, I left my cell phone there and didn't realize it until the next day. They saved it for me!
