This place was great! HUGE menu, HUGE platters, average prices. Seems authentic and was very tasty! We enjoyed the cafeteria type atmosphere.

Great tasting - reasonably priced Mexican food, friendly order takers, response time from order to eating- really quick, salsa bar, and free chips, and an informal ambience that has an authentic feel of a Mexican neighborhood taco eatery.

I found this place by accident (no Yelp, no nothin'). The first year that my daughter went to college in Palo Alto, I was walking from the hotel to the campus and El Grullense was standing there and my stomach and eyes were ready for it. Again without knowing I picked a "Green Burrito" just because I liked the name... More

I've been to about a million Mexican places and this one is right up there. The food is awesome and the tacos are almost free. Really, two tacos is a very respectable meal here. I come here every time I am in town and it is the highlight of the trip. One day I was here for a medical visit... More

Absolutely excellent mexican food, from sauces to enchiladas, service ready and attentive, they provided us a new order almost immediately after our request, in order to let us eat all together. The place is definitely not a jacket and tie, but there is anyway enough room to have some privacy. Recommended for food (also take away) mainly.

I walked to this restaurant from Creekside Inn. The menu was quite varied, and the staff even made a special dietary adjustment for me when I requested it. Very delicious.

Went with co-workers for lunch, food came in a timely manner and was excellent. Nice salsa bar to choose from. Highly recommend this place.

We really like the enchiladas here and the prices are great, as is the hot sauce. The staff are also friendly. However, my digestive tract did not enjoy the experience quite as much. I thought it was just a fluke, so I went back about a year later, and experienced the sequel to Montezuma's revenge. I've never had this happen... More

I took my kids (ages 11, 9 and 5) there. We got 3 tacos ($1.35 each), 1 wet green burrito ($7.75) and two vegetarian burritos ($5.75 each). Way too much food. My burrito was quite filling. I usually eat my food and help with the kids. Not thus time. Nine year old finished his tacos, but the 11 and 5... More
