“Everything is delicious, you can't go wrong!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Alejandra's has both indoor and outdoor seating. The bar has a large screen TV but is unobtrusive. There were three in our party and we each ordered different things. I had the chicken burrito and meatball soup which was delicious. All of us enjoyed our meals. The portions are large but I ordered the Apple Chimicanga. It was wonderful!

“One of the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

In a town full of outstanding Mexican restaurants, this is a perfect choice. Great food, caring service in a family owned restaurant on Visalia's vibrant Main St/downtown. Full bar and patio seating watching the Downtown pedestrian scene make this our 'go to' in Visalia.

“Like Mamacita Used to Cook..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We hit downtown Visalia late after a day of business seminars, looking for Mexican food in this heavily Latino area. We lucked out when we rolled up to Alejandra's thirty minutes before closing, and were cheerfully greeted and given chips and fresh, delicious salsa. This friendly attitude was evident in all the wait staff, we soon learned. This warm summer eve we chose to sit outside in the patio adjacent to the tree-laden sidewalk. This must be quite the people-watching spot when the sun is still up! Not being extremely hungry we ordered a la carte, with a couple of cold beers, served in icy mugs.. My bride had a trio of beef taquitos that came with guacamole and sour cream, accompanied by a cup of the albondigas soup, that she (who excellently makes this dish herself) said was very good, and I had an enchilada Suiza, cheese-filled, with the same condiments, and a little salad on the plate. Our server, José, was very attentive, even though we were way out on the patio. During and after the meal we chatted with him in Spanish and English. It was delightful! If we ever go back through Visalia to visit the Sequoias (after all, Visalia is their "Gateway"!) we will definitely revisit Alejandra's.

“Super food and drink at a very reasonable price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Very crowded when we arrived, good sign that it's popular. Bartender was working alone but still got my "special" margarita right and it was worth the wait! The food was excellent. Great find after being in Sequoia NP all day! Would definitely return.
