We have been semi-regular customers for over a year. The last two visits the chicken burritos were terriblly salty...you could hardly taste the chicken. Both the server and manager stated that the salt is added in the morning to the meat. The manager offered to cook a side of grilled chicken with an up charge and took one burrito off... More

Had cheese enchiladas with grilled pork on top with ranchero sauce. Was excellent and the pork was tender. We had eight in our party and everyone enjoyed their meal. Waitress had great attitude and offered to take a group picture of our party. Overall we really enjoyed this meal.

I liked the new location (practically next to the old one). Service is good, prices are fantastic and the food is good. Love Chile rellenos. Makes it hard to try different dishes when I go there, but I do try. In fact, we are going there again today for lunch!

We go here regularly and love the food. All the basics are great: chips, salsa, rice, refried beans, etc... Food is fresh and yummy, we especially like the Pollo Loco, San Jose special, Chimichangas and Fajitas. My husband who doesn't care for Mexican food, enjoys the soft tacos and enchiladas since they are not too spicy for his taste. There... More

The food is the same as before. The new location is much better. The new employees hired to serve at the new location have a better attitude than some of the previous employees at the shabby old (now closed) location next to the Secretary of State service center. If you are looking to find the new location... just go North... More

Their food is very good, especially the chile poblanos, and chile rellenos. The service is okay, and the place is clean. They are still not quite as good as Puerto Vallarta or El Cozumel.

Good food, excellent value, worn floors need replacing. The prices are really low, however, maybe they should charge a little more to replace the ragged carpet and hazardous carpet strip that could really be a hazard if someone tripped over it (SHARP metal edge of carpet strip is sticking up... see photo). I ordered "Lunch combo #1" and there was... More

I visited with family members after a church service and the food was amazing. I asked if they had a sample platter, yes, and I said i'll have that. They brought 2 platters with about 6 entrée's and I ate every last bite. It was so good.

One of my favorite Mexican Food Restaurants. Love the Pollo Loco--Chicken in Cheese Sauce w/squash & onions--Very Tasty. Really never had anything here we did not like. Wait staff friendly. Atmosphere is what it is--Mexican kitsch.
