I love coming here vs.the "chain" Mexican places. The food is consistently good and they have a big menu and full bar. Weds. night is $5.00 pitchers of margaritas that are a little too watered down, but their regular margaritas are great! Good atmosphere too!

Terrible buffet, Terrible service, Terrible experience. Food was cold, and tasted like yesterday's left overs. Only 6.99, but still a waste of my lunch time!!!!!!

This is my favorite Spanish food restaurant. I always order the grilled steak quesadilla and empanadas california. The empanadas are freshly fried, super crispy and comes with the best queso dip! I also love the sangria margarita, but not all the bartenders over there knows how to pour the margarita over the sangria without mixing it all up.

We have had mostly positive experiences here. The Wed. night deal is great and the margaritas are pretty good. My favorite menu item is grilled shrimp, mushrooms and fresh avocado in flour tortillas served with queso and salsa. Some of the other items I've had (the more "traditional" entrees) have been okay, but nothing special. The atmosphere in the bar... More

Normally I do not write reviews like this, but after my experience, I must tell others about it. So while my family of four ordered our meal, we ran out of chips. When we asked for more, the server said that they were out of chips. We wondered how they could be out of chips but things happen. So we... More

We eat here occasionaly because we live down the road. Sometimes the food is great and sometimes it's not. There's no consistency IMO.

My husband and I used to search for the best Mexican restaurant in town for years. Our search was over when we found castillo. From food to service to drinks, always the best! I actually send pictures of the food to my sister in Colorado because she misses it so much....more for me sister!
