This was my first visit here. I arrived just before 6 PM. They filled up rapidly and had a wait line. All I asked for was water. 5 times over 20 minutes. This is a Mexican Restaurant with spicy food! You quickly desire something to drink. About 5 minutes after the food was delivered, I walked over to the bar... More

My family and I have been going to this restaurant in Bonsall for many years. Now that they moved to Fallbrook, they are even closer to us. This is a family owned restaurant, and they treat you as part of their own. The food is amazing. Once you are seated, They service you fresh, homemade tortillas chips and salsa. The... More

Food is Decent. The place is always packed but then you always have the feeling of being crowded in when eating there. Prices are a bit on the high side and my bar drink was watered down.

Stopped by for a quick bite. A local recommended Estrella's. it's a small restaurant and that's part of its charm. Friendly staff small town feel. Check it out if you're in the area.

Estrella's has re-opened in Fallbrook at 129 E Mission Rd. If your looking for great tasting, authentic Mexican food, this is the place. The food is very tasty, well prepared, and the place has a very friendly staff. Estrella's is small with only a few tables and usually busy, so be prepared to wait. You can eat at the bar,... More

We were introduced to this small but friendly restaurant shortly after moving to Fallbrook last Fall and now we are regulars who bring anyone who happens to be visiting us in to eat there. After two visits the waitress remembered what we liked to drink. Even though the place is full, the staff never forgets that you are waiting for... More

They make a great margarita. I also love the flour tortilla chips and salsa. I have been here many times, and the food is always good and plenty of it.The place is pretty small, so it is usually a bit crowded and noisy, but the food and drink make up for that.

The food is so amazing here. Best Mexican food in town. Very reasonably priced. The only drawback is the size of the restaurant. Wish there was a little more room. It is okay though because it does make it quaint. Worth the wait always. Best Margaritas!
