“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Best green chili and beef tacos in town by far! Family owned and operated with the friendliest staff around! Have to stop in at least once every couple of weeks!

“Best Green Chili Tamales”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Been going to Vallejo's for several decades and it remains a little family owned Mexican restaurant that's hard to find but has outstanding food. I'm a sucker for their 3 green chili tamales and I think they're the best in town. With a side of rice and beans, you can't go wrong. Their salsa that comes with the chips is hand made and also, I think, the best in town. And this is an inexpensive place to eat. Authentic? Absolutely.

“Love vallejos style!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

This is a dated hole in the wall where the grandma still does all the cooking and it is fabulous. Best rice and beans ever. Cool vibe, great service and a true gem. No lq license because you don't go to your grandmas house for tequila, you go there for home cooking, just like vallejos. I adore vallejos.

“Great food! Authentic Mexican.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

I've been here a few times and always enjoy the food. It's a very small dining room, homey and personal. The family is from the old country and they have kept things pure. There was plenty of food and it was awesome!

As far as finding this gem, to say "you can't get there from here" is almost true. It's tough to find but worth the extra work. They just celebrated 51 years in this location.

Do yourself a favor and check them out.
