This place was very busy, mostly with locals. Lots of choice. No frills. Food was good. Service was prompt, It is very reasonably priced. What they do they do well.

“Healthy, flavorful, and I am constantly craving it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

I always get the carne asada burrito with beans and rice. This has become one of my absolute favorite restaurants and most importantly one of my favorite meals to the point where I crave it and even call in so I can pick it up when I'm in a hurry. The ingredients are always fresh, and the portions border the larger side so I typically have left overs. If you haven't been to Eclectic, you really need to...and soon!

“Really good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Ate dinner 25 NOV. Chimichanga's were delicious along with all our other food. Hostess was rude, snobby, and glared at my wife. Waitress Gerry was very friendly. Would definitely eat here again.

“Great Menu and Consistently Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I have been eating at the Eclectic Cafe for over 20 years. They are consistently excellent with regard to food quality and value. Yesterday I tried something new the Chicken Pesto Burrito with Green Enchilada Sauce. "Awesome"! Don't forget to ask them for a bowl of the Poor Man soup.

“Fast, good food with no pizazz”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We've eaten here twice so far and both times the food was fresh, tasty and arrived at the table quickly. Their salsa is delicious - flavorful and mild (maybe too mild for some but I like it). The chips were fresh, not greasy (and salted). We've ordered both entree salads and Mexican food so far - all was very good. You can sit outside to see the mountains, but it's located in a strip mall so it isn't very dramatic. Don't expect atmosphere or decor inside either - this is a no frills spot.
