At one time this used to be a decent place to get Mexican food. We have come here often over the years. In the last 6 months to year the bottom has really dropped out of this place. Family visited from out of state so we thought we could treat them to a really good Mexican meal. However, they got... More

This place has the most consistently inconsistent green chili, but I love it anyway! It is offered hot, mild or half and half. I always get half and half, but sometimes it is so spicy it curls your toes, other times it is just right. The stuffed sopapillas are the best, but I can't have them anymore, they contain gluten.

This restaurant was BUSY. So, I take that to mean that someone likes it. The food is relatively cheap. The portions are relatively large. The service is OK. If you are looking for cheap Mexican food, this just might be your place. If you are looking for quality Mexican food, you probably want to look elsewhere. I found it to... More

We stopped for lunch while riding bikes on the bike path. The restaurant is in front of the bike path. We both had burritos with half and half (half mild and half hot) green chili. We thought the green chili was great. I think the hot would have been too hot for me, the half and half was great. The... More

I visited today at the lunch hour. It was very busy and crowded. Mainly because of popularity. Portions are generous and prices reasonable. Food was good, not exceptional but good. And yes, they were running behind. They also have a drive up window. All in all I would call this average and the prices are better than most.

The worst example of American "Mexican" food. Maybe it was what I ordered: Huevos Rancheros at dinner time. Ordered this because it was the least boring, standard item on the menu. Eggs soaking in lukewarm (temp. not spiciness) chile with a some small cubes of once frozen potatoes and out of the package flour tortillas. Waitress kindly said she would... More

The restaurant personnel was extremely polite and service was prompt. The food portions were generous. They acted like they really wanted us to be there.

Santiago's is a great little place for low priced good Mexican food. The key is the green chili which comes in mild, medium and hot! Trust me the hot is hot!!!! So order it half/half - which is half medium and half hot. The atmosphere is very diner like with just tables and few booths. No reservations required and you... More

Yes, the place is an old converted KFC. What it lacks in glamour it makes up for in character. We go there at least a couple of times a month. I get the crispy rellenos and my husband gets the tamales. We then trade one for one, each ending up with one rellenos and one tamale. He gets the mild... More
