There's a lot better Mexican food on offer in the states but the evening atmosphere was good and there was live music playing. The bar staff were really friendly.

Las Cambritas was our first stop on a long weekend vacay. First was a beautiful blended margarita served in a pint glass. Although it was a bit on the icy side, it was great because it was a warm weekend. We ordered some of the $2.50 tacos, and they were stuffed with meat/cheese. We had chicken, carnitas, and beef, and... More

Whenever we go to Cambria we have to have the Fried Avocado. In fact we sometimes have an order each for dinner! The Cadillac margaritas are yummy also.

The worst shrimp cocktail I've ever had. Sauce was thick and tasted like Ketchup. Was expecting way better from a Mexican restaurant near the coast. Staff was very friendly. Probably wont eat here again.

My daughter and I stopped at this Mexican restaurant because of other reviews we read. Unfortunately we did not have a good experience. The salsa tasted like it came from a jar. I had the carne asada burrito which tasted awful. My daughter's chicken tacos were just 'okay'. Nothing to talk about! The serving staff, however, were very friendly and... More

Fun local hideout. You could be sitting next to Sam Elliot or another movie star( Kiefer Southerland) and not even know.

We really loved this food. But be warned, the portions are huge. Try the burritos or enchiladas. The chips are fresh and the salsa is tasty. We will be back.

This has not always been my favorite restaurant in Cambria, but I was lured back for another look by Jon Stephens playing wonderful flamenco and latin music, and Bartender Jerry's perfect "Perfect Manhattan". Not every bartender knows how to make this drink but HE does. Also had the best chile relleno, always my guage for how good a Mexican restaurant... More

We really enjoyed our lunch, tasty fish tacos for me and a burrito for my husband. The portions were nicely sized and you had complimentary chips and salsa with your meal. The patio is a very pleasant place to eat. My problem is the sangria. It tasted great, but lacked much alcohol and was extremely expensive. With 3 glasses of... More
