We went for lunch and the food was delicious and served in time to make it back to work within our lunch hour. They serve their chips with 2 different salsas. The food was fresh and hot. We will definitely be going back!

We've been here many times. Started with a margarita on the rocks - very good. And also ordered the guacamole - large plate and tasty. But it costs $7. Wife ordered cheese enchilada plate - pricey but good. I ordered a beef taco - ala carte and a beef torta. I've ordered the same many times. The taco was excellent!... More

My friends and I stopped for dinner and it was an electric atmosphere filled with fun music and fun patio. The prices are not too expensive, and my friends all enjoyed their meals. Of course, I chose the loaded quesadilla and it lacked the yummy gooey cheese that makes a quesadilla so yummy. The margarita made up for it and... More

Great atmosphere and awesome food. Well stocked bar. Service varies fro good to mediocre. We always bring our own wine. Reasonable corkage.

Vallejo's is very close to the capitol, very pleasant but the food is just not particularly tasty or exciting. Not much for a vegarian to eat. Also, like so many other places, they tell you the food is not spicy then it is. Good for a basic, good Mexican meal but not anything to write home about.

There are lots of Mexican restaurants around downtown Sacramento, but this is always my favorite. The food is delicious and plentiful (which is what you want from good Mexican cuisine), the price is very reasonable, and the service is fast and friendly. The only thing I don't like is the noise. Even though the restaurant is quite large, with both... More

Went here since it was close by and we were hungry. First problem: asked for water with no ice. Water came with ice and a huge chunk of lettuce and some other gunk in glass. Ordered lunch portions. Very generous for the price. I had a steak tostada. Steak was tender b ut no sour cream which was requested. Came... More

I had dinner at the Vallejo's on 4th Street on Monday, October 28, 2013. I was not pleased with my dinner at all. It was not hot, the guacamole was tasteless and so was the chicken quesadilla. This is not what I remember from the Vallejo's of years ago. Vallejo's use to be the best...now, I don't think I'll go... More

If you work downtown, this place is ideal for lunch. They obviously gear their business to the State workers and downtown employees. The place is clean, neat, fast service and value for money. I had a salad and it was the perfect size portion for a lunch and tasty. The restaurant is called "Mexican", but it's not even close to... More

Erica is the Bomb. Food is ok. Sometimes seated at a sticky table. Not crazy about the tacos. Been there lots of times on Wednesday. Always excellant service from Erica.
