Great, clean atmosphere! My husband and I had the enchiladas and it was fantastic!! The rice had corn in it which made the taste even better! Chips and salsa were right on point! Friendly staff which made our entire lunch that much better! We visit Cambria often and I can't believe this was our first time. Next time, we will... More

After a couple of nights of fine dining we were ready for a change.and Mexican food sounded like a fantastic idea. We stuck with the basics, chicken enchilada's for me and chicken tacos for Kim with the usual rice and black beans. The chips and salsa were fresh and had the right amount of zip. The food was hot, plentiful... More

It's ok, not great. The staff is friendly and helpful. The outdoor seating is nice. Seems to have gone downhill.

If you are looking for good Mexican food you will not find it here. Margaritas are pretty good though. Finding good Mexican food in Cambria means being invited to the home of someone who can cook Mexican food.

We used to enjoy visiting Las Cambritas during our Cambria vacations, sometimes for lunch but usually for dinner. We especially enjoyed the live band on the rear patio on weekend evenings. Then we quit going there, as neither the food nor the Margaritas seemed to be as good. Well, it's been years and we were staying a week in Cambria,... More

Visited again during our vacation in Cambria. Actually ate here twice. Had the same server and she remembered what we had ordered four days previous. Friendly atmosphere, good food (alot of locals in the bar). Good chips and salsa.

Ordered mango margarita and it was yummy! I had the avocado egg roll and husband had the tres tacos. Everything was good! Was it my favorite Mexican food no but it was good and I would come back. Service was great. Our waitress even brought our dogs a water bowl and treats. That was a nice touch.

We had a table for 8 people and without exception all of us really enjoyed our meal. The service was friendly, efficient and very quick. The food was of the large portion's and the taste was fantastic. Refills for the drinks just kept coming without asking. The bill came to $21 a head which I thought was reasonable. Try it... More

Very convenient for the B&B and had vegetarian options. We started with cocktails and the went for mains. Food and drink were good but nothing special, but the typical American portions left us struggling.
