All the locals eat here. Enough said! The focus is on the food, not the décor. Simple Mexican style food that is well done. I eat here regularly (as do many people who live in Seaside.) Possibly the place to eat if you want to see other locals. While it isn't open on the weekends and often closes for part... More

I was reading online reviews and we (party of 5) walked in. Decor is low-key, but then BAM!, the food arrived. After the first bite, everyone said how delicious their food was. I had the chicken burrito Enchilada style covered in sauce. Huge delicious burrito filled with pinto beans, cheese, rice and pulled chicken. Authentic Mexican, go, you will be... More

I used to frequent The Stand, back when it was on Ave U in Seaside...it moved closer to the downtown area, and I stumbled upon it on my most recent visit. Same DELICIOUS food. Great prices. Friendly staff. Consistent. Fresh. And REAL LEMONADE. Get there!

Food is very fresh and more authentic, not Taco Bell. Prices are very fair. Portions are more than ample. Hours of operation can vary. Open mainly for lunch/early dinner. Don't leave Seaside without a meal at The Stand!

A small Mexican restaurant on the north end of Seaside might get passed by if you didn't know how good the food is. On Saturday, they only offer from their express menu but the tacos are huge. I had the pork and cabbage taco. Yum! Soo tasty. I want to come back during the week so I can try their... More

I love The Stand! We eat here every time we are in Seaside. It is such delicious, healthy, authentic Santa Cruz Mexican food. The flavors are amazing. We love the homemade ingredients including the Corn Tortillas and Salsa. I love the Carne Asada Tostada, & the Pork Recession Taco's. They are $1.95. My boys love this place to eat, too.... More

Place is spartan, a little cold in the winter. People are friendly. Food portions are big. I had a burrito with spicy veggies: not so tasty. My wife had tacos and she liked them.

It had been awhile since we dined at The Stand, we usually go across the street to Guadalajara Taco Shop. I ordered a combinaiton of the Cheese Enchilada and The Chili Relleno which came with sides of rice and beans. My first bite into the Chili Relleno was cold. I took it back to the front for them to make... More
