Great for vegetarians

Not the most authentic taqueria, but tasty options for vegetarians, assembled as you order ( which is nice because you select the ingredients. Lots of seating, comfortable clean seating. Great service, quality food at reasonable price. Best mex food in Rocklin

My family has frequented this restaurant for years and we still consider it a favorite when we want to pick up dinner. The excellent quality of the food is consistent. It's delicious and a must try in Rocklin!

Don Quixote's is a family favorite and we eat there frequently. I love their salads and my parents love their burritos. I don't think you could go wrong with it, unless you don't like Mexican food.

There is always a long line but maybe that is a good sign? The food is good and fresh. I just hate it when I order a specific type of burrito for example and then they ask me what I want in it and go down the line of every item they have, like they have no idea what is... More

We've been eating here regularly since they opened about 5 years ago. This is a restaurant where you order at the counter, watch as they prepared your meal and then take it to a table inside or outside to eat. Employees bus the tables afterward. Free tortilla chips at the chip bar with multiple salsas and other condiments/garnishes. Fountain drinks,... More

This is without a doubt THE WORST Mexican Food I have ever been served. I felt I had to write this review to warn people about this food. They claim to serve CHICKEN Tamales, However, when the tamales arrived, they were obviously PORK. I don't eat PORK and neither does my husband. When we brought this to the employees attention,...

These guys ahve been turing out good food for years and out survived some others during the down years. Great food ordered and cooked in the Chipotle style. Burritos are excellent and you get free chips and salsa. Great for families or business lunch

Ok, so this isn't going to be for those people who are looking for truly authentic mexican food. However, it is pretty close and the quality/flavor are outstanding. It's a local place (one other location) and the secret is getting out as you'll find it pretty packed during lunch or dinner. It's served quickly (think Chipotle style) but with a... More
