Went here to pick up some quick fast food and the prices are high and the food is awful. The meet portions were small and it tasted like their fries and the grease they use were way out dated or used a lot.

Stopped in for lunch. The menu offered a variety of American and Mexican dishes. I tried the rolled tacos and a rellano. Both were very good. Service was good and the server was very polite.

Santana's has changed its name to Castaneda's. Don't know if it's new owners or new menu. Let me know.

We have stopped at Santana's several times and enjoyed the food, the service is a little Iffy at times and our order has been mixed up at the drive thru. The quality of the food is always good.

Do not waste time or money on this attempt of fast food Mexican style. This in a fresh food offering could be an awesome approach. This is fried bad product served fast. Yuk.

One word; YUMMY! The new owners have taken pride and up scaled all the restaurants. Anything you order will be great, however adding things like sour cream, guacamole etc... Can bump up the price significantly.

if you're hungry for Mexican food on the go, Santana's offers authentic food without the chain store feel. Portions are hearty for the price. We've not been disappointed with our food there. Freshly made to order.

Way too much grease in everything. Things tasted like they came out of a can. The chef was distracted and played with the flour tortilla before putting it on the grill!
