We Love Yolanda's

Yolanda's in Ventura is our go-to Mexican restaurant. We have enjoyed everything we've ordered on the menu, but my favorites are the flautas and the margaritas. Every time we go in we are welcomed by the staff and our favorite server, Ashley. Would recommend to anyone!

I was driving around looking for a place to eat and came upon Yolanda's. I was your average Mexican place. The for was okay and the service was okay too. I had the carne asada w/ chili rellenos. The chili rellenos was pretty good.Nothing to write home about

I have lived in Ohio, Colorado, California, Idaho, Nevada and Oregon, and I have traveled to 45 of our beautiful states, often entertaining customers; often just seeking great restaurants wherever I went. My restaurant reviews are based upon those living and travel experiences, and I am going to stick with my very outrageous Title for this review, and say again,... More

We were visiting Ventura for a wedding and my daughter wanted Mexican food. She looked up restaurants in the area and found the Yolanda's was close and had good reviews. This restaurant has good food. The service was excellent. I would definitely eat there again the next time I am in Ventura.

Another great meal at you Yolanda's. We went to Yolanda's to celebrate our 40th anniversary with our family. We had reservations and our table was ready when we arrived. The drinks were quickly served and were as excellent as usual. While there were only eight of us, the server had some difficulty in keeping our orders straight. Everyone commented on... More

Yolanda's is a great place for everything. Date night, family dinner with the kids, huge parties and even a Wedding rehearsal dinner like I had. Service is good and food is always great. We can also count on never waiting long, unless you go on Cinco de Mayo.

We try to eat at Yolanda's whenever we are in the area. Their Chili relleno and tamales are some of the best I have had in the past 30 years. My wife loves their salads and we both love the margaritas. This past visit was the first time I tried the lunch buffet and it was wonderful. There was a... More

Very large and quiet restaurant, nice ambiance, with solicitous service. Our food was ordered and arrived quickly around noon. My wife liked her chili verde, but it was "very mild nothing special." I had a combo plate w/taco and tamale. Both were fine, as were the nondescript rice and beans. In my judgment there was nothing to distinguish this food.... More
