I grew up in southern California about 10 miles from where Sarah came from. This is authentic Mexican food. There is no ambiance, the plates and silverware are disposable, but the food is real.

We love Sarah's for lunch and always get either pork or chicken smothered burritos... so cannot comment on anything else. These are so good, and we don't get downtown for lunch much, so when we go, it's for the smothered burritos. There's always enough left for dinner or lunch the next day, so we get 2 awesome meals for the... More

Sarah's Mexican restaurant is a simple but tasty place to grab some good food. I went there by myself in the middle of the afternoon hungry after a long day of work. I had the enchiladas with rice and beans and it was everything I expected it to be. My only complaint about the place, is that it uses Styrofoam... More

Great lunch place I've been eating at for last 20+ years. I won't go there after Rose goes home. The salsa has great flavor. They are always fast and tasty at lunch. The gal that takes the orders doesn't really care about accuracy, but I think she is at least part owner and is entitled to ignore your requests. If... More

Styrofoam tableware. Stale chips. Tomato purée instead of salsa. Iceberg lettuce. Mistakes on my husband's order. I also made it clear when I ordered that I don't want any cheese, but the cashier did not tell the kitchen or they just didn't care because there were bits of cheese in my bowl that I had to pick out. Overall impression:... More

Small cafe style family run mexican restaurant nothing fancy but authentic food. Very reasonably priced and food is hot when it comes out. We have not had a bad experience at this restaurant and go there often for lunch. If you want fancy franchise mexican and call that good then Sarah's is too good for you.

Nice small restaurant atmosphere, friendly people. But the food is nothing special, just your usual rice in a large pot and generic beans with cheese on top. It's not bad, but there is nothing on the menu that makes you get excited.

If you want to fill up on some yummy Mexican food while in downtown Billings, I suggest you go to Sarah's. The prices are more than reasonable, and the portions are huge. Sarah doesn't sound like a Mexican name, and what was even more strange is that the night I ate there the food was prepared by a gringo, but... More

Very authentic, good value. But the ordering process is awkward. The ordering desk is at the back and you have to stand down the middle of the restaurant to order and then try to find a place to stand or sit around the restaurant until your food is ready for pick up. Needs a remodel and a better way to... More

We had read the mixed reviews in TripAdvisor but decided to try the food for ourselves. Our expectations were high since a magazine we receive rated it very highly. The guacamole was green but nothing like it should have been and the food was tasteless. We went about 100 miles out of our way to give this place a try.... More
