“Excellent local restaurant with great waitstaff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

The food was fresh; had delicious salmon tacos (1 taco was enough to make into 2). Fiance had spicy chicken. Chips were fresh; salsa tasty. Was beyond impressed with the waitresses. The restaurant is tiny, (only about 12 tables squeezed into a small space) but they were able to accommodate 3 large parties (10 each); one after another. It was amazing. Meanwhile, they still managed to serve the rest of us and keep the food coming.

Went here with the family and two friends. Had to wait a bit but we had some beers on the outside steps:) They rearranged the furniture for us and made sure we were happy.

“Good Mexican food and Great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Well, it's not a sexy place - in a mini-strip mall - but the family has decorated it in a charming way and brings not only warm & friendly service to your table, but GOOD FOOD, as well. The guacamole is fresh, the chips crisp and you never leave hungry.

“Good for what it is”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Lets be honest, Los Gallitos isn't the second best restaurant in town nor is it even in the top 5. What it does offer is pretty good, authentic Mexican at VERY reasonable prices. They meet expectations, which might not be too lofty by looking at the place, and that is why they rate well. There are other little hole-in-the-wall places in town serving up the same authentic Mexican Cantina food that are as good or better then Los Gallitos but aren't as well known so they might not even rank as #1 in that category. Still the food is good, plentiful and affordable so if you're looking for a reasonably priced lunch spot this will work but there are many places with much better food, just at a higher price.
