Always Well Done--San Marcos Grill !!

From the minute one enters the San Marcos Grill you know it is going to be good. Immediate reception by staff, escort to place of choice, and prompt service is the standard of this restaurant. The adjacent bar area deserves likewise accolades. All menu items are recommended from past enjoyment. The... read more

This is not the best Mexican food in Carson City, nor the worst. The food was good but skimpy on portions with very little sauce. I ate the whole meal, enchiladas, rice and beans and had to ask for more chips and salsa to fill up. Others in our party were satisfied except the picky children; they split the kids... More

Located in a shopping center. Not very busy. The food and service was good. I don't think it was anything out of the ordinary but good. Worth a stop. Not sure how it is for dinner but lunch was good.

Came here for lunch over one weekend with co-workers, and was very good. Very large menu with tons of selections, I had a hard time figuring out what I wanted. I ended up with the Shrimp Mango Salad and was very pleased. Lots of Shrimp and flavor, I would order it again. The chips, salsa, and bean dip were very... More

I am a big fan of Mexican food and this is, hands down, the best I have ever had including San Diego area and Mexico! Who would think, this little gem hiding in a small strip mall in Carson City?! Don't miss it!

Best Mexican in Nevada. Ceviche everyday just like Mexico. Plato ve Carnitas and bean dip wonderful. Reasonable prices. Margaritas by the pitcher if you are so inclined. Tremendous staff of waiters and management. Our third visit and will surely return. Can't wait.

Someone said we should go here, he was right! It was sooo good. The artichoke dip, excellent! Definitely would go again and again. There is so much I need to try.

I just LOVE their guacamole, prepared tableside. I also enjoy the fact that their menu items are tastefully garnished with cheese and not SMOTHERED in cheese. ---And Mamacita's flan is like no other!

We stopped in here during a road trip after a long drive. While the food was tasty and well prepared I found one of the staff to be a bit rude and it soured my experience. We had the Platos Verde, Shrimp Tacos and Blackened Fish Taco. All were prepared well although I thought for the price the Chile Averde... More

For good authentic Mexican cuisine, there are better choices in Carson City. The food is mediocre and the atmosphere isn't good either.
