Good food, but have to wait

This restaurant has been in Stockton for many years. It used to be located by Waterloo many years ago. The new location is much nicer and when the weather it's nice, opt to sit on the patio. The food is great, but the service is slow. Don't go when you are starving, it takes a while to order, but... read more

Visited Nena's over the past weekend. The pros-Ambiance is nice as it is on the waterfront. The chips and salsa was pretty good but I think the best thing about Nena's is the handmade tortillas. I ordered a dinner with a chicken taco and cheese enchilada. It was the only time I had ever seen a dry enchilada. I could... More

The location is nice, food is still really good, but service has gotten worse every time we have gone. Your table's order never comes out at the same time. the last few times,... More

The food is the BEST in the area. The services is terrible. The owner is a nice person but had not managment skills and the employees take advantage of the situation.

Nena's Mexican Restaurant is located at the Waterfront, near the Port of Stockton, overlooking the Stockton channel.. It is great restaurant, with a festive atmosphere, to dine, and enjoy a fantastic view of the Stockton channel waterways, especially during sunset. What a view! Kinda gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling. Besides the nice location and the view, Nena's is... More
