We often eat dinner at this restaurant when we are in the Cambria area. It has very good Mexican food and is not at aII expensive. I had the carnitas platter. ActuaIIy there was too much meat for one person. And we had the chili reIIeno which is always a favorite with us. Plus we gorged ourselves on the chips... More

We decided to try some place new in Cambria and were pleasantly surprised by Las Cambritas. Dining room is large with a few different eating areas, large outdoor patio deck and a bar. Menu has something for everyone. Tried the carnitas which were great! Large serving of meat, rice, black beans, guacamole and at least 4 tortillas. Plenty to take... More

Had high hopes when we went in, looked like it might well have really good Mexican food - but it doesn't. I had a couple of super tacos, which, while large with lots of meat, at $6 each were pretty much uninspiring. A Jack in the Box super taco tastes better and costs half as much. The seating is OK,...

Made a stop here on our way back from Hearst Castle. We were truly hoping for a great meal. I might have had had expectations based on this site's reviews. Living in So. California you would think I had tried it all. Well, I was wrong, I was the most horrible Chile Relleno I have ever had. In fact, I... More

I had the Mexican corn on the cob and it was smothered in mayo, spices, and topped with parmesan cheese. It was a full cob and it was VERY good! The margaritas are good here, as well. Service was friendly and efficient. Seemed like a lot of locals eat here.

Went there for dinner. Waitress was very slow and rude. Told her to give us the bill for the drinks. Both my husband and I have never left a restaurant for bad service until this place!! Went down the street to another restaurant that far exceeded the quality.

Went to Las Cambritas for dinner the other night. Service a bit slow but the food more than made up for it. We started with the bbq'ed Mexican corn cob. Really good! Smothered in butter, mayo, spices and parmasian cheese. I had shrimp, beef and pork tacos. The beef was exceptional and the pork was very good too. Nice big... More

Since moving from San Clemente to the Denver area, hard to find real Mexican food, only tex mex! Blah! Had a yummy margarita and best roasted corn ever!! Ordered tostada appetizer. So much food. Very authentic. Service a bit slow, but hey... We are on Cambria time!
