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.

This place is just off the square. I come here quite often because the food is good and consistent with minimal delay. The chef has a brother who runs the Agave restaurant over by Safeway. Between the two, I still prefer El Farolito. I usually get a burrito with cheese melted on top or the Chili Verde which is always... More

Food is good, location perfect if your'e paying $375 for one of your downtown rooms- leave the sockless loafers and designer handbags... More

The surprise was the service and the food. Our server was smiling and made us feel like she was happy we were there. I ordered fish... More
