The prawn burrito was very good. Service acceptable. The only little irritation was they charged a dollar for about a tablespoon of sour cream. Usually free with a burrito. Would recommend.

During an extended stay in Healdsburg we surveyed several locals about their favorite Mexican joint. El Farolito inevitably made the top of the list for Healdsburg.

Out of a three night stay in Healdsburg, we ate here twice! The food was so good and the bar service was terrific. The prices were very reasonable.

Pedro has stepped up his game and come up with some nice dishes. The shrimp tacos were great, Crunchy, Fresh Shrimp with a cabbage slaw, very tasty.

We had the nachoes and fajitas burrito and both were amazing. The waitress was attentive. I would recommend it if you are looking for quality Mexican food.

We were convinced that this would be a good place to eat by a local couple who passed us as we hovered at the doorway menu with the comment, "Eat here; you won't regret it". It was as good as their word. The simple back dining room had a warm atmosphere, with a lot of local diners. The service was... More

It was by accident we happened across this Mexican restaurant and we were happy we did. It was a fun atmosphere with good, fresh Mexican food.
