Delicious!

It has been a while since I visited El Farolito. Just took my mother there today and we both liked it, although Mom didn't think hers was as warm as she would have liked. We both had the Barbacoa Burrito. So yummy. A reasonably-priced restaurant for touristy Healdsburg! Nice cheerful service too!

Great recommendation from a local to check this place out after a day of wine tasting. The food was awesome, after sharing an order of guacamole, I ordered the barbacoa which was cooked perfectly, paired that a spicy margarita and life was good! My date ordered a vegetarian dish that was outstanding, the veggies prepared perfectly. The bartender was an... More

I love this place!! When you walk in you think there isn't many tables until you get to the back. I have had several things on the menu and have enjoyed absolutely everything. I try to go there for lunch at least twice month. The service is quick, so if you have a short time, you don't have to worry.... More

We just wrapped up a nice day of Wine tasting and needed some good Mexican and we found it at El Farolito. Nice staff, fresh Guac and a delicious Fajita Wrap. We will go back the next time we are in Healdsburg.

Stopped for lunch. They have interesting specials each day, like TJ tacos and Oaxacan food. At first glance, it looks like they have few vegetarian options, but they can make most anything without meat. A nicer place with table service, not a taqueria, but reasonable prices.

The staff is friendly and the restaurant is clean. I had a platter with three tacos: a fish, a barbacoa and a steak. The barbacoa taco was particularly flavorful and juicy -downright delicious. The steak taco was pretty good as well. Unfortunately, the fish taco was inedible. The first bite of fish that I took was so bitter that I... More

My daughter and I were in town for only the night. We happened to park only a half a block away. We checked out the menu and the daily special which looked good. We walked all around the square looking at the different places and ended up back at El Farolito. A few reasons were one of course the menu... More

Great food, really. Service was good and atmosphere comfortable. All-in-all a very good value. I'd definitely recommend it to friends and those inquiring.
