Fabulous Mexican Food

Sweet corn tamales was very good with a harmony of sweet corn and spicy sauce. Chile verde was also great, not too spicy. The waiter was very friendly but they were busy to take care of the other bunch of customers.

Pedro's Cantina is an oasis nestled in the heart of bustling Silicon Valley. Wind your way past the huge fountain and into the cool, Spanish tiled interior, there's always a place for you. Turn left to visit the bar, and notice the interior balcony and two story ceilings. Ask at the bar about their special margaritas. There's always something new... More

I went to Pedro's cantina many times. Their food is fair priced and good quality. I like their fajitas the most. Ask for flour tortillas. The outdoor deating area is nice too to have a drink with friends and share varieties of appetizers.

This is a large and spacious restaurant with a truly authentic California history environment. The food was very food as were the margaritas. The only thing I would have like was for a larger outdoor dining area, the area they have is very small and was open seating. It was such a pleasant evening, it would have been nice to... More

Their chicken nachos are awesome. We have been coming here for years just for their nachos. They are an appetizer but we always order a full size which is big enough for a meal. Their salsa is pretty good also and usually our service has been great. The only negative thing I have to say is their margarita's are not... More

Excellent Mexican restaurant located near a plethora of offices in Santa Clara. Try the chips and salsa and the enchiladas. This place is best for lunch.

This place has decent food. We got there for happy hours and on Sunday to watch NFL games. They don't have Sunday ticket so you're limited to what's on national TV but the place is pretty decent.

Huge facility with more than 300 seats. Endless stream of nachos as starter. The food was quickly delivered (given the large number of desks the food needs to be prepared cantine-style) and quite average in taste, visual appearance and size. Low prices combined with quick delivery makes this place a good lunch location, but eating good food is something different.... More

This is a huge restaurant and is packed at lunch times which tells you how good the food is. Despite being busy the service was fast and efficient. There was a seemingly endless supply of chips and salsa. I went with a large party and everyone was happy with there food. The portions were a good size and very tasty.... More
