Authentic Tasting Mexican Food

Nena's is located in the downtown Stockton Waterfront building that is adjacent to the Stockton Downtown Marina. This refurbished building is nice to look at and Nena's is located inside this building at the very West end. Nena's also had a smaller deli type food stand a few doors down inside the... read more

This is just an AWESOME place for GREAT food.. AND it happens to have one of the precious views that's nice in Stockton!! Wait service CAN be a bit slow when they get overwhelmed (slammed) by a large crowd! However, the Owners & Managers go out of their way to make up for any delays! THE BEST Mexican Food in... More

Went for a family dinner at Nena's. I love their fresh, homemade tortillas. However, there were too many flies at the table to enjoy the food. Very disappointing.

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 don't... 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

Used to love going to Nena's for some of the best Mexican food in Stockton, but after they moved to the waterfront location, the service went downhill. 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
