OMG, Northern California is not particularly known for its Mexican restaurants but I must say that Nena's is one of the best there is. I even told this to the manager. I am from SF and there is such limited excellent Mexican or Latin restaurant. You better try the Chicken a la Parilla and you will never see the light... More

We love Nena's! I would give it a 5 rating except for the location. If you are a visitor in town, I would recommend going during daylight hours as that area of Stockton can be a wee bit dangerous at night. The food and sauces are simply AWESOME! The waitresses are great as are the musicians who entertain some weekend... More

What I like about this place is that the owner makes you feel like she knows you from a very long time. She goes to your table and makes sure you had a good experience . The food is alright the tortillas are very good.

I've been eating here for many years... Just love her food.. Really good.. The only reason I won't give it 5 stars because sometimes you have to wait a while and sometimes the waitors don't check on you... Still really good

Me and all my family go here when we want Mexican food. When ever I think of Mexican food in Stockton we don't go anywhere else. The food is authentic and the drinks are good too.

We ended up here at Nena's. Great atmosphere, service and food. The Corona could've been a bit colder, but no biggie. I wasn't very impressed with the cheese enchiladas, but the beef tostada made up for it. The camarón enchiladas were very tasty. Although, the guacamole was chunky with lots of flavor, it had very little avacados. Love the fresh... More

Since relocating near the waterfront from their previous location the biggest change i've noticed is........nothing. That's a good thing as the food is excellent. I recommend lunch on the patio when the weather is pleasant . nice views of the waterfront and the baseball arena. But they need better waitress they take to long take a order.. they never smile..

First of all the food is great but their service is VERY DISAPPOINTING!! We had family come in from Louisiana for our sons wedding, they wanted to try "real Mexican food" so we thought nena's has been a popular establishment for a long time... We made reservations for a large party, the food was good but the problem came when... More
