A lot of different choices and you get your food at a decent time . Prices are around $10 for a meal . California Burrito is pretty great there . Good place to grab something quick to eat .

This place gets bad reviews too often. I lived in 29 for a few years and people judged me for eating at Santana's all the time; I'm really not sure why. The food is GREAT (I always get the same thing - machaca burrito add cheese & sour cream), the only place better is down in San Diego. I live... More

First and last time we ate in this food chain. Tis only time was already enough to let us make out for ourselves it was not worth the money spend. Meal was not tasteful at all, served improperly. The whole property looks worn out and could use a great make-over. The restroom was closed, had to ask for the key.... More

Our family of 5 stopped after visiting Joshua Tree for the day. My husband and I ordered cheese enchiladas. The cheese was not melted inside. But the grossest thing was eating part of the melted plastic plate in a bite! Plastic plates can not be microwaved or put in an oven! They knew they burned through the plate because it... More

We wanted some drive thru tacos and pulled thru Santana's. The server was quite amicable but the food could not have been more bland. Looked spicy but was completely without any distinguishing flavor. Was very crunchy tho.

If you live in California or Texas, you've probably had some pretty good Mexican food. Which means if you eat at this place, you're going to know it's terrible! The people who work there are nice and the prices are very low, but the food is barely edible. The people I was with thought it was okay but they weren't... More
