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

My family and I ate here when unfamiliar with the area because it was highly rated. The atmosphere is small and cheery and clean. The service was just ok. The food was really nothing special. Edible, not horrible, but not worth the price in my opinion. Its been about 8 months since we ate there and we have not and... More

I was expecting more from a Mexican restaurant in California, but it was not a whole lot better than what I can get on the east coast. But the food was good. I would try it again.

Small basic Mexican restaurant with good food. We tried the chili verde and carnitas both were great. The service was fast and efficient. The price was reasonable. We would recommend Sarita's to anyone.

We live in Marina, Ca, which is an okay town near Monterey. We use the store and the bank, and it does have a nice beach. The restaurants are very limited, but every now and then we feel like getting some Mexican food to bring home without going too far out of our way. So we tried Sarita's and have... More

They have some amazing Mexican food at great prices. The nachos are so good and can easily be split between 2-3 people.

I'm still trying to understand all these glowing reviews for this place. It was some of the worst Mexican I've ever had. My husband ordered a lime margarita that tasted like straight limeade. It was so bad he didn't even finish it. All the food was extremely salty and the chicken tasted like it came out of a can (wrong... More

Festive decor and a friendly server greeted us. My family and I enjoyed a nice meal here. Great chips and home made salsa. We all ordered combos which included chile rellenos and chicken enchiladas. Sauces tasted home made too. Portion sizes are generous and we took leftovers home.
