The location was nice overlooking the waterway and airport. Fun watching planes take off and land. The food was average Mexican food not great but good enough and satisfying. The server was a little kooky - kept calling me "mama" but that was ok. At least she was friendly and competent. I would recommend it.

Never disappoints. We have eaten at the restaurant multiple times on visits to the San Francisco area. It is right on the water with excellent food and an easy walk from the Hampton Inn nearby. Always have eaten there with other couples with us ordering different meals and they have all been good. Best when you can get a booth... More

This restaurant has an amazing view of the runway at SFO and the San Francisco Bay. So while you are eating, you can look out at planes landing and taking off. In and of itself, that's pretty darn cool. I had the quesadilla app and it was outstanding. More than enough food for a meal. I didn't order a dinner... More

Food and beverage was average. Took several minutes to seat a group of 8, when areas were open and unused. View overlooking the bay was very nice.

Good food, nice variety on the menu. Lots to choose from, and portions were great size! Tuesday night is karaoke night in their bar area, which is Not our thing. Even seated in the restaurant area, we could hear LOUD AND CLEAR the songs, so keep that in mind when dining there.

I arrived in San Francisco in mid-September for a two-day visit, in order to see an operatic performance. I stayed just south of San Francisco International Airport in Burlingame, and decided to have an early dinner at this large Mexican restaurant which is next door to the Bay Landing Hotel, where I stayed. I walked over at about 5:00 PM,... More

Take a cab to taco bell the food is better. Only good items are from the bar. Food is less than average. Very bland and tasteless.
