Don't let the location fool you. Cheerful colors inside and tasty salsa. The tamales were good and the rice was flavorful. The waitress wanted to be somewhere else, but did okay.

I used to like his place before they moved to this location. The food just seems to me on the bland side. Where's the spices? Not bad overall but just boring. Some of the waitresses seem somewhat unfriendly on occasion.

For great, authentic Mexican food, cooked and served by wonderful, friendly people, Sarita's is the place to be. With three locations, we visited the one on Reservation Rd., almost out of town traveling east from Del Monte in Marina, or just as you drive into town traveling west from Blanco Rd. or Imjin Pkwy. Definitely worth the drive.

This place is the best place to get Mexican food in Marina. They have the best salsa, by far, and you can get a cerveza prepared (with salt, hot sauce, and shrimp) for $3.50. They are also the only Mexican restaurant in Marina that will actually put everything, including sour cream and guacamole, in a burrito without having to ask... More

While visiting the area, we tried this restaurant which was located close to the hotel we were staying at. The restaurant is small, but very clean with friendly servers. I ordered one of their combination plates. The food was good with large portions and the price was quite reasonable. We would definitely eat there again.

This tiny restaurant in a strip mall was a gem of a find! Open early for breakfast, friendly service, huge portions. Visited multiple times during a long visit to the area.

Not a fancy restaurant, but clean and you get what you order. Quality is good and prepared right there just for you. Very economical, a homey type place. Service was efficient. Closes at 9 PM, so get in early.

Ingredients were very minimal. I think my chicken burrito came with chicken, rice, and beans with a side of salsa and was comparably priced to a place that would also add other ingredients plus chips. The limited ingredients made the burrito pretty dry...

We had arrived back in town after a trip to the Sierras and realized we didn't have anything in the refrigerator for breakfast so we stopped at Sarita's. We had heard from others that it was a very good place to eat breakfast and they weren't wrong. We had the Carnita Burrito and a Chile Verde Omelette. I noticed that... More
