Without a doubt this is our fav Mexican restaurant. We started going here in 1994. We have tried almost every item on the menu and have introduced many of our friends to the place. Carmen and her crew run a great ship. Now when we dine there I usually order off the specials for the day menu. My 2 favs... More

This location has the best Mexican food and the service is excellent. It starts with the delicious homemade salsa and warm tortilla chips. The food is fresh and tasty and the fresh fish tacos are one of my favorites.

Small and out of the way location but very good fresh home made food. We've loved everything we have ordered. The salsa is the best, great steak and shrimp. My husband loves their chimichongas.

We visited this family run restaurant after some 6 months break. I ordered Large Shrimps in Diablo sauce (hot), black beans and rice along with Mexican avocado salad. My friend ordered chicken Enchilada with refried beans and rice. While waiting for our lunch we asked for fresh made Guacamole and salsa with corn chips. What a treat. We finished couple... More

When we went there for some reason they handed us a very small menu with very few items on it. I later found out they have another menus with a lot more items on it. The food we got was good and the service was okay but I still cannot figure out the Menus deal.

I've loved Enrique's for a long time. One of the best Mexican restaurants at which I've ever eaten. I love everything, and if you like spicy, ask for the habanero sauce.

Honestly when we first came in I was a little septic...their decor is old...but the food and service was great. My husbands Chile Verde Burrito was just delish :) After huge portions I am glad we still ordered a dessert that we shared with my husband...and OMG that is the best Créme Brûlée that I had in CA and believe...

I visit this hidden place several times a month and have tried most of the dishes on the menu. They taste consistently good and delicious. The place is family owned and the host is always nice and courteous. They are happy to tailor food to your taste.

Not too far from our office this has become the go to place when taking clients out for lunch. The portions are huge so you can share and not worry about being hungry on a half a meal. The prices are very reasonable. Great Mexican food with authentic flavors. We have not had one person that came away from this... More
