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.

The building was nice and was clean, it was just I was expecting one thing and got something different. The service was ok, and I will try it again sometime.

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

This is a fast food place, not a fancy restaurant. That said, their food was very good. I ordered taquitos with rice and beans and they were the best taquitos I ever had. I ended up coming here 3 days in a row for their taquitos. And the prices were very reasonable.

This was one of the largest Santana's I have visited. The menu is huge. Food was well prepared and quickly. A lot of military frequenting the restaurant.

Okay, so this isn't exactly 5 star, but it's good. It's fast, convenient and it'll fill you up. I've gone there a few times and i think it's ok.

This is the perfect 24 hour horrible Mexican place. Don't get me wrong, I love this kind of place. It's the kind of place where the more you've been drinking, the better it tastes. I'm not endorsing drinking and driving. Instead, make a safe plan, and have part of that plan consist of the designated driver going through the 24... More

Santana's is a semi-fast food place with a nice selection of authentic dishes and decent prices. The quality is fine and the tastes are authentic, although a little toned down. The salsa bar is a very nice touch. I've had better Mexican food, but, more importantly, I've had much worse. If you need a quick stop for lunch on your... More
