Always Great

Been eating lunches here for over 10 years--very steady, very good quality food. Low grease, high fiber, best beef, pork and chicken asadas ever. Part of a family chain, always good service, positive attitudes. The manager makes the salsa himself every day--just the right heat with variations... read more

Been eating lunches here for over 10 years--very steady, very good quality food. Low grease, high fiber, best beef, pork and chicken asadas ever. Part of a family chain, always good service, positive attitudes. The manager makes the salsa himself every day--just the right heat with variations on ingredients to keep it interesting. Try the asada enchiladas--generous size, excellent fillings.

Not the best quality middle of the road Mexican food. Better than Taco Bell, but better middle expense Mexican restaurants exist in San Luis Obispo. Pepe Delgados in SLO is better quality for similar pricing. Although, I am not sure it is worth the drive from the coast. The service was very good and the atmosphere is pleasant. We need... More

The Maya is right across the parking lot from the Best Western El Rancho, bonus when you are staying there. we like the maya. Servers are friendly and quick , and plus we love the food. Good portions, and you have the ocean in the background while dining.

I was really impressed with the bright, colorful interior of this little restaurant just off Highway 1. For breakfast, I had Mexican scrambled eggs with refried beans, flour tortillas and coffee. Not too pricy considering all the food I had. The place is well-lighted with spacious windows all around. I would recommend it to travelers.

We stay at the Best Western El Rancho. This restaurant is located on site. It is casual, easy to get to and the food is average for mexican food. The portions are fine. The service is fine. Really no complaints.

Ate lunch here with a group of 16. I ordered the chicken taco salad . It was a generous size and very tasty. Others in the group ordered a variety of Mexican specialties and all appeared to be very pleased. Very good service for a group of this size. I'm sure many of us will return in the future. We...

Love this place. I was going to grab some fast food before I left town cuz I was in a hurry. But......the smell from the kitchen lured me in! I had their breakfast burrito (wet) & when they say hot plate they mean it. This thing was hugh. Eggs, bacon, cheese, home fried potatos and beans all stuffed in side... More

I thought that unimpressive Mexican food was a rarity in California; that is until I ate in this restaurant. The chicken in both our dishes was dark meat, and the food had no kick; it was quite bland.
