This has been in the hood for many years, and it's a nice place close by for a good meal. Never had any issues with food or service.

Good food, good service, and reasonable pricing. I've been coming to the Newcastle and Factoria restaurants for 15 years and have never been disappointed.

They offer a nice wine selection... More

Can't say enough about this restaurant! We dine here quite frequently and just love all the dishes we have tried. Excellent food with great quality ingredients. The restaurant owner and staff are a delight and make the dining experience wonderful! We normally have a margarita and it's nice that Tapatio does not 'water' the drinks down.

I have to warn you: the one... More

They make wonderful fish tacos, Chicken Mole Pablano, Pollo Taraxco, Carne Asada, Fijitas and other dishes are well executed and delicious. They have extensive vegetarian offerings and are happy to make them vegan if you want that. They make their own tortillas on site and you can watch them being cooked. All the dishes are a good value.

If you live in Newcastle and do not want to drive to another city, this is your only choice. It is not bad, but nothing more than food to fill you stomach.

Long time customer since they opened almost 20 years ago. Salvador and his family always have top notch food and friendly service, and great margaritas.

Good food, nothing great. Portions were ample. What you could see was clean. Kids were welcome and had a special menu. Service was a bit random. Atmosphere was what you expect.
