We had dinner on a Saturday night and got a table easily. Food was pretty good but we are spoiled with better Mexican food in San Francisco.

I've been going here for years after my fishing trips to the coast. Every time I visit I get the same burrito and expect it to be a little better than the last, but it never is. But it always costs more!! This surprises me because there are a million taquerias in this county, most of which have it really... More

We make a point of eating here when we're staying in Rio Nido. I haven't been to Mexico in over 50 years, so I can't speak to "authenticity," but the food is better than a lot of places, and there's variety to the menu. No white tablecloths. You line up to order, take a tray with your order number, chips,... More

Good, solid, cheap Mexican for when you don't want another fine dining experience. Quicker too. Counter service and just beer and wine.

Come really hungry. The Burrito I ate was bigger than my head. Great Pastor. Nice pickles and salsas to start. Good beer on tap. Totally low key good food. Right to the West of downtown, but open only on odd days, so do check.

Not too far from our home, Taqueria La Tapatia has delicious Mexican food and 5-6 beers on tap, plus a selection of bottled beers, soft drinks, etc. available. The food is delicious, well portioned, and served fairly quickly. This is a very informal restaurant with counter order service with food delivered to your table. Good for a quick lunch or... More

The Chile Relleno burrito is great, the salsas are all fresh and wonderful, really everything is always consistently delicious. On top of that, it is the warm and friendly staff that makes this one of our favorite places to go when visiting the Russian River!

Open dining area with tables to accommodate large groups. You place your order at the counter and then choose your table. Large selection of food and I've never had a bad meal here. Normally I call in a to-go order (lucky enough to have a cabin in the area) and it's ready within 15 minutes. Love their Salsa Fresca and... More

Not the best but the food is decent. Quite a bit of room can handle large groups well. People that do like the food often say that the carnitas are good...

This place is pretty much the only Mexican food in town. I stick to carnitas burrito, carnitas tacos, and or the carnitas plate. Staff is friendly and charismatic.
