My husband and I just moved to town and tried San Martin for lunch, The salsa was spicy and OK my husband loved the chips They are thin but not homemade, still good. I had a combination of cheese enchilada, shredded beef taco rice and beans All very tasty, enjoyed the flavors very much. A lot of food, very reasonable... More

I've been eating at San Martin's since I was a young girl in the 70's. Not anymore. What once was the best Mexican food in Lompoc is now the worst. It pains me to say that. I use to crave their salsa!! Now, it just makes me sad. The place is run down and they don't seem to care. I... More

The food has become very americanized. Lots of cheese and not much flavor. The building does not appear to be updated since I went there last in the 70's.

We are use to Tex-Mex and Southwest spices which made the food bland. It was good but bland. Eat some place else if from the southwest or Texas.

This happens to be the worst Mexican food I have ever had in my life. It is not only tasteless and bland, they do not even make an ttempt to upgrade or improve in their cirrca 1979 offerings. I actually was going to send my food back, but instead ate a few bites of everything to sample and each time... More

Hmmmm... One star or two? Let me see... * Below average food * Reasonable service * Appalling seating and decor Okay, one star is just fine. I've eaten here intentionally once in 35 years. The other three times I've been, I've done so because others were going and invited me. Some things you do things for family and friends that... More

Been eating at San Martin for many years. Sometimes excellent and sometimes pretty basic/standard. Their chips and salsa have always been good. Today the food was just average. prices remain good.

Basic Mexican fare but done well, along with reasonable prices. I ordered their shrimp enchilada special, which came with lots of shrimp, not just a little as you might get elsewhere.

I have been eating at Cafe San Martin for my whole life (off and on) as it seems to be good at times, and not so good at other times. This last time was for a birthday dinner, at the request of the birthday girl. The server was great, but the place was VERY dirty, and the food mediocre at... More

If your looking to get a healthier meal try a chicken or bean tostada with no cheese. They use white chicken breast meat . Not dark noby gristle like some of the other resturants do(YUCK). My daughter loves the tamales, husband loves the chili rellenos, son love the chicken tacos. Taco tuesdays are a blast. Great prices! They need a... More
