Great friendly waiter. I asked for his recommendation and he said fajitas. I ordered the steak/chicken fajita combo- very delicious. Prices are definitely competitive. This is a locals' favorite. Everything was great!

We had a very nice meal at El Pueblito restaurant in Santa Maria. From the outside, the restaurant doesn`t look too exciting, and the interior is also not amazing.

My husband had the beef flautas combo. The beef was not over cooked and he said it was the best! I loved the cheese enchilada combo. The service was great. We got everything we needed, great attitude and a smiling face from the waitress. We don't live in the area, but would stop again when we travel north.

We received a recommendation from The Santa Maria Inn for this restaurant. There were 8 adults and a baby. Plenty of room and great selection. The enchiladas were recommended and the shredded beef was great! Next time we are in Santa Maria we will be stopping by!

My husband and I frequent this gem when we are hungry for Mexican food. We explored all of the Mexican restaurants in S.M. and this is our favorite. The chips and salsa come with any meal and are the best! Appetizer of cheese enchilada and the shrimp fajitas as an entree always consistent and delicious. This is a cozy, friendly... More
