Decent Mexican Food with Friendly Service

We tried this Santiago Mexican Restaurant location in Loveland, CO, for a quick lunch one weekday and occupied the last available table at the end of the lunch rush when we came in. We took the full restaurant as a good sign. For us, it was. Service was very friendly despite the busy time of... read more

Oh Boy, the food is pretty good if your Ray Charles. The place is so cold one could hang meat in it. We had dinner on a Saturday night, while the staff stood around and played with each others hair the four dirty tables around us remained so dirty. If you like loud country music while you eat your Mexican... More

One of a chain of Santiago's, this one doesn't cut the mustard. We had the enchiladas and a burrito. The meat was cold and the sauce was just blah, not really bland but not the spicy sauce that we were used to from the other stores.

They serve food extremely fast! My favorite dish is their Indian Taco, I chose to have it made with beans and carnitas (pork) and mild green chili. They have the BEST carnitas!!! They also make awesome crispy chili rellenos. The bad things about this place is that their salsa runs perfect or WAY TOO SPICY HOT for me, it is... More

This used to be one of our favorite Mexican restaurants, but no more. The food was bland, and the green chili which used to be the best was tasteless and flat. Salsa and chips cost extra and the salsa was not good. Table was dirty when we sat down and service relatively slow for 1:30 PM on a Monday. There... More

We LOVE Santiago's Johnstown and Brighton. This restaurant is rarely the same other than you can count on the food arriving cold. The half and half chili can be burn your stomach out hot one visit and the next very mild. Also lacks the true Santiago's flavor. Would not recommend.

I just don't like their food. It is not authentic, not high quality food. Even their breakfast burritos are not good

Oh goodness, what a mess. We ordered 3 items, then shared them. We had a chicken and beef deluxe smothered burrito, a cheese enchilada and a soft taco. Quality of food was poor, taste was bland even with the medium and hot green chili. Was hoping to add another good Mexican restaurant in Loveland to my list. Santiago's definitely did... More

Santiago's was recommended to us because we are not familiar with Mexican restaurants in Loveland. As forty-year aficionados of Mexican food, we were very disappointed with Santiago's. First, they charge for chips and salsa, as well as sauce on an enchilada. My husband's green chile plate had little green chile. My chile rellenos tasted like the chiles had been in... More

I am not a fan of cafeteria-style restaurants and did not anticipate this before going. Food is good but not authentic Mexican. Value is average. If you are looking for authentic Mexican food try Taqueria Los Comales just west on Madison. You can get to it by winding through the same parking lot.
