Late night family meal.

Food was good and they had some vegetarian options, beer. Staff was very efficient and friendly. I would add more types of vegetables such as potatoes, mushrooms, squash to vegetarian food.

Stayed nearby so it was convenient to pick up an order. Inside is clean and the food was good. The taco truck they operate at Safeway parking lot has better reviews...so worth trying the truck first. We had the 2 taco combo, carnitas/ al pastor, with beans, rice, salsa, and guacamole. Hubby had the super burrito.

Though they were a little surprised I asked for a burrito in a bowl, it's probably one of the better burritos in a bowl I have had. I had the prawn burrito in a bowl, and there were plenty of prawns - they weren't skimping on the good stuff. Staff is also kind and friendly.

I went with a Mexican-American friend the first night near closing time and several of the waitresses rolled their eyes at us and said we could only get nachos at that time. We said we'd return the next day. You'd think that being with a Mexican national would at least get decent counter service. Girl who took order was rude.... More

It's a nice clean restaurant with good food next to the Fern Grove Cottages where we stay. We try to go there each time we visit.

We are always on the lookout for good Mexican spots, and we knew the minute we pulled up this would be a winner. It's not fancy (you order at the counter and they bring your meal to your table) but the variety of dishes is mouthwatering. Highlights: You choose your own combinations, the portions are generous, they've got draft beer,... More

Delicious! And the nearby taco truck in the Safeway parking lot, also owned by La Tapatia, is a local staple for a very, very good reason...¡sabrosísima!

Good place for a quick bite. Standard roadside counter service space, but the staff is very friendly and a very good selection of food items. The tongue tacos and the fish tacos were excellent. Washed down with a Lagunitas IPA, it made for an enjoyable and quick lunch.

Family owned casual dining. Breakfast served all day (think machaca & huevos rancheros) Traditional Mexican fare, seafood specialities and a children's menu. Choose from a variety of fresh salsas. Large portions, fast friendly service. Loved by the locals for good reason.

We visited family in the area and had dinner here. The food was great and the staff equally good. Very large servings, and a large and varied menu. A little on the noisy side, but the food made it worth while. Can't wait to go back.
