“Best Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Have been going to Colimas since 1990 and it still remains the best Mexican food around! Even better than Mexico! Their chips and salsa are always fresh and the burritos are excellent! Everyone I've ever taken there loves the food as well! Great place for any meal or celebration!

“It's good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Food is good. Nothing great, but it will certainly do. The location is in the downtown area which makes it very easy to get to. The waiters do their jobs. The food is pricey for what it is. I would recommend.

“Downtown lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Good food and helpful staff. restaurant is on Main Street in Visalia and fairly close to the Marriott. Downtown Visalia is always busy so look for parking spot in one of the City lots just off Main Street.

“Delicious Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Their Wet Burritos are the BEST! I love going to this place. If you are ever in Visalia it is easy to get to right next to the freeway. I definitely recommend.

“Average Mexican Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Spacious, with friendly staff. However, the food is just ok. Not bad by any means...just ok. They serve a green spicy salsa, which is tasty. The nachos grande with jalapenos were bland and overpowered by the abundance of refried beans. The carnitas platter was large cubes of pork, and somewhat fattier than I've experienced before. The corn tortillas were warm and sturdy. Being located in California, I was expecting better guac, too.
