so close to the road, it's always busy, nothing was hugely memorable, though nothing was bad, you really have to decide for yourself

We stopped here for a quick meal. The portions were very generous and the staff were great. There was nothing wrong with Good it was just a bit bland. The owner was in and he made a point of visiting every table and gave all the kids some fun plastic glasses. Overall it was ok but I probably wouldn't go... More

Our family of four had good meals here. The place was hopping. It was very alive. The menu was basic. Chips and salsa were served while we waited for our food. I had the whole enchilada-- filled with red snapper. I thought it was a little fishy but my daughter liked it. They provide good sized portions. Everyone was full... More

The Whole Enchilada is located conveniently off Highway 1 in Moss Landing. They enjoy a good local crowd as well at trourists who drop in. We went for lunch and it was delicious. My wife had a fish tacos special and I had a combination with a taco and enchilada. While we were waiting for our food the owner dropped... More

We have tried The Whole Enchilada three times. First time I ordered crab enchiladas. I asked if it was real crab and was assured it was. Well, no it was not. The order took along time to receive and sending back my plate was a nightmare. My husband was finished his meal and mine still had not arrived. Finally came... More

What a great meal. Mexican food in a fab setting with super staff. Not cheap for a family of 5 but plenty of choice for fussy eaters. To top it all off the tequila helped make the night go well! ( for the adults of course). Fish of the day was snapper and incredibly fresh. I tried2 different tequilas. Who... More

The food here was really outstanding. My husband said it was the best clam chowder he's ever had, and the calamari was fantastic too. My chimichanga was delicious. The owner came around to talk to us and make sure everything was good, and he even gave the kids each a pair of sunglasses. I'm glad we stopped here.
