Muy deliciosa! Good margaritas! This was our first visit but we'll be coming back again and again. My wife's favorite was fish tacos. I tried a combination but found the chile releno a little lacking behind those that my wife makes. Overall an A-.

This is our third trip here and will always come back when in the area. Food is authentic and if you are a "heat" lover, ask for the habanero salsa.... so hot and so good.

We eat here often. It's very good Mexican food, great service, excellent Margaritas! The fish tacos are my husbands favorite. I love the enchiladas, chili rellenos, really everything I've ever had has been good. Good for lunch and dinner. I recommend this place.

I am very picky about my food, and San Marcos Grill used to be my favorite Mexican food, until Ole Ole opened its doors inside Gold Dust West Casino in Carson City, NV Now my favorite Mexican Food is served at Ole Ole.

We actually went to San Marcos the first time because of a coupon and boy are we glad we did! We love what we think of as the 'real' Mexican food, not terribly spicy unless you want to add the spice to it and San Marcos fits that bill! We feel like we're in Mexico and the service has always... More

I have been eating in the San Marcos Grill for some time now and it is far superior to any other Mexican restaurants in Carson City. The food is delicious and they obviously only use the freshest of ingredients. I love getting the guacamole made at my table. The salsa is just right, not too hot so it ruins the... More

Had a wonderful dinner here with friends last night. I had the "special" which was blackened fish fillets topped with a yogurt red sauce and garlic shrimp. YUM. Margaritas and "table guacamole" (fixed right at your table - to order - by Papa) were such a treat and absolutely GREAT. Other reviews have said the service was slow, but I... More

I think this is a relatively new restaurant in Carson City. The food is excellent, and the people are friendly and helpful. I had chicken enchiladas, which were very tasty, and a little different, suggesting perhaps the cook was possibly from a different area of Mexico. Overall, the experience with the family was wonderful.

This restaurant is a little tricky to find, being tucked away in a small strip mall, but well worth finding! The food is always good and the service is friendly. Prices are fair too. This place is a favorite with locals, so sometimes it gets very busy, which can affect the wait time.

I'm always on the lookout for delicious Mexican food but won't return here. The food wasn't too bad, but it was forgettable. When we entered the restaurant things were slow and the mood less than festive. Then the place got slammed and our food took forever to arrive. We were not happy that our kids' quesadilla took 40 minutes. We... More
