This location is in the Restaurant Row of the Antelope Valley Mall, was Johnny Carrinos previously. The decor is nice, there is a bar also. We thought we'd like to dine in the bar as we thought we could watch sports. There are only a couple of monitors so every seat does not have a good view of the tv.... More

This was my "go to" mexican food place when I lived in Lancaster. Excellent service every time we ate there and the food was the close to the best in the Antelope Valley. Great value and very consistent.

Nice late night spot to eat and chill with friends. Karaoke was popping that night and everyone had fun. Staff was extra cool. I'll be back.

We went for Christmas. The meal was very expensive and really not worth the money. The service was slow. The drinks did look good, but again very pricey.

When we go out for Mexican food in the high desert this is the place to go. The service is always great and so is the food. Love the Albondigas Soup and the Chili Rellano's are the best. Would recommend this place to anyone who like good food.

The food is Just average. Margarita too sweet. Worst part as we were having dinner the waiter gave us our bill immediately since he is leaving. We felt bring hurried . The manager apologized but I already felt bad. I still recommend this place but it will take me a long time to return.

Medrano has the best chips and salsa in town and great guacamole. The food at medrano a is excellent and staff can't say enough great things about them especially Jesus and Chrystal and not to take away from anyone else. They are all very attentive to your need. Lunch menu inexpensive and on Saturdays the buffet from 11:00-2:00 is excellent... More
