The waiter offered two of the guests in my party to do order an on-the-fly combination of two of the pork dishes. I tried the pork and it was delicious. I had the Oaxaca Chicken and was impressed by how tender the chicken was and by its flavors. Parking is very hard ... recommend car pooling or arriving early and... More

The best poblano mole chicken in the west, and you can choose black beans. The rice even has a few vegetables in it. One of my favorites for "date night"- dinner and a flick. Parking is always a problem so maybe next time I'll park somewhere else and walk a few hundred yards.

The food quality was great, service very responsive and attentive. Had a hard time parking, place turns into a zoo during lunch hour with a traffic jam in front of it. Strange smell inside, maybe not too well ventillated? Would come back in off hours, as food was truly good.

Friendly service, good food, nice atmosphere. I really like their chairs--very colorful! We've never had to wait for a table, but sometimes the service is slow. Good selection on the menu and tasty entrees. Great margaritas!

We visit Estrellita from time to time. It tends to specialize in Oaxacan and Sonoran style Mexican food. Beware that parking is very tricky here, both as there are few spots, as well as the lot is shallow.

We've been going here our whole lives! We absolutely love this place! Great service, great food, authentic mexican cuisine. This is NOT a fast food "tex-mex" kind of place. Very family friendly, and terrific with large groups--but make a reservation. Can get busy around the holidays and at lunch.

Since discovering Estrellita a few years back...it's been one of my favorites for true mexican cuisine on the peninsula. It's also handy from my workplace. Parking is the only negative I can state. Get there well before the lunch hour to secure parking. Otherwise....it can be a real challenge. Food is great, service is great, price is excellent, variety of... More

Took a group for a business lunch. Parking was okay but the inside decor was wonderful. Helped set a casual atmosphere for good discussions. The server was very attentive and brought our food promptly. Everything looked wonderful and everyone was pleased. The portions were just the right size for lunch. Did not order drinks but the bar looked like a... More

Food was very good adn tahe portions more than generous. We all ended up taking food home with us after we had eaten all we wanted. No lard is used in... More
