This restaurant is family owned and operated. Great selection of food and drink. Shelley was our server and was an excellent representative of the spirit of this restaurant.

Very friendly family owned restaurant. Probably one of the best Margaritas I've ever had. The large is big enough that you won't be able to drink a second one, although you'll want to. Food was excellent and the salsa is good enough to take some...More

The refried beans were watery and didn't taste like what I expect. Food was bland for mexican. Service was slow, slow, slow. I had to wait a long time just to get a drink refilled.

good food, nothing special but typical Mexican food. Girasoles margarita was very good, my carnitas burrito with rajas was quite good. After 7 hours of mountain biking, there is something special about Mexican food.

Pleasant staff efficiently serving standard Mexican fare--nothing outstanding and nothing bad. We had tacos enchilada and chili relleno and tamale. The tamale was the best of these. A B+ tamale and C+ taco.

Upon entering I saw a sign for chips $4.25 a bag. Then I continued to browse the menu. Basically there's not a bargain here. I noticed the carpet was dirty. Also the waiter said I could not buy green chili for take out. I ordered...More

This restaurant is located on the side of other businesses and can be missed if you're just driving by. We stopped at one of the other businesses and found Los Girasoles, glad we did... The food is authentic Mexican and is some of the best...More
