The service was good, pretty tight on a graduation night. A little pricey but ok, portions are plenty. My kids ordered the same steak and all 3 were different. A little on the dry side and had ordered med well, but they were sirloin so that comes pretty dry anyway. The ribs were fine. All in all for what we... More

Our waitress Samantha was very nice and helpful. I ordered the Short Ribs at her recommendation and they were just ok. I really did not eat them as they were tough and tasteless. I liked the mashed potatoes and the Spinach was over the top good. My husband ordered the Pepper Steak Filet and the sauce tasted like Swedish Meatballs... More

we took out of town guests there on March 15 2015 for dinner. The restaurant was empty, so was the service. We ordered kalamari, overdone and dry, same with the fried shrimp. We were embarrassed for our guests, their beef ribs were also very tough . I called several times to speak to the owner , and every time I... More

We went to Maderas as a gift from our kids. They had purchased a Groupon certificate for a Christmas gift to us. We were treated especially well by Peggy was our server. She is very knowledgeable and made great suggestions. We both selected the TriTip for our entree. The TriTip was the most tender I have had in a restaurant!... More

Looking for a steak house I chose this one to avoid the common chains, hoping for something a bit special. Steak was Ok but not exceptional, service was OK, reasonable value but probably would not go back.

Great menu! We tend to always go for the ribs. They are fall off the bone delicious! They also bring additional warmed sauce! Their steaks are known to be amazing, will try those next time! The staff is very friendly and makes you feel like a local. We frequently stop here to break up the drive from San Diego to... More

I can almost guarantee you will never taste better Tri-tip! But make sure to ask for extra BBQ sauce on the side. That makes ALL the difference. Now I can guarantee you will never have better green beans or asparagus. We order 2 extra sides of the green beans when we go in. The bartenders are always great and the... More
