Fresh and delicious!

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... read 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

Guess this place is full for lunch. The place was relatively empty for dinner. We filled ourselves up with a bunch of appetizers. All of them tasty, well done and well served, so no specific suggestions. The prawns and the fish were great though. Wont go wrong ordering these.

This is a very large hacienda style restaurant in the middle of a commercial area. We were there on a Saturday night and it was not very crowded. I suppose they do most of their trade from the many offices that surround the area. The food was good, not great but good. Service was good. Not much to complain about... More

I've been going here for ages and still like it better than any other Mexican restaurant. It is a bit far from where I live now, but worth it when I need a fix. Note that the Pedro's in Los Gatos appears similar, (I even though they might be the same owner),but the food is not the same at all.
