We tried El Farolito for the first time and enjoyed the best chile verde and carnitas plates I've had in a long time. My partner ordered the chile verde and it was tender, lean, and the sauce was excellent. I had the carnitas and was really happy with this dish. It too was tender and flavorful (and thankfully, not greasy)... More

Consistent quality food and prices with good service. Great salsa and chips! Love the chicken fajita wrap. We go as a family all the time, the staff are great with kids. They have a drive through for quick pick up of beans and rice. Nice outdoor seating and remodel last year made the indoor seating much nicer and they added... More

We go whenever we can it's outstanding. It's real Mexican food and everything is always fresh. I love their burritos; my wife love's their salad.

Looking for authentic mexican food this is the place. Very tasty salsa, not the chunky style salsa but more of a sauce style. the food is very good and inexpensive. The service was great, but the atmosphere was average. the restaurant has a tequila bar and a take out window

on a recent trip to the Sonoma wine country in California, my wife and I scouted out a Mexican food restaurant so that I could get my bi-weekly fix of my favorite fare. We came upon El Farolito in Windsor, California. Parking was easy as we went during lunch on a weekday. The menu had so many intriguing choices, I... More

Somewhaty limited space, but nice variety of Mexican food, well-prepared. Tequileria next door, and Casteneda's market across the lot. Very reasonably priced and make sure to check the local specials.

My family has been eating here for years. We often brought our children when they were growing up, and we appreciated the family atmosphere. Loved the funky look, the convivial attitude of the staff, the giant burrito challenge (perfect for teen boys -- if you can eat the entire 4 lb burrito, it's free -- one of ours was able... More

Very good Mexican food with a greatly varied menu. I had the Chili Verde and it was presented well, however the service was really sloppy. I think every waitress in the place came to my table at least once and all of them walked away forgetting my requests. Eventually my food came and I still didn't have cutlery or a... More

Try with blinded eyes El Farolito, Windsor CA, the food is very good and fresh, and that all the time you go. Try the ceviche tostada or the chiliverde burrito, they are amazing in flavor ! They have a outside terrace and a bar, and sometimes a guitarist singer comes. Service is good and rapid! just enjoy it Amigo !
