This restaurant is a nice place to bring the family! It's big enough for large groups and has nice waitstaff, but they can be a bit slow on returning to tables to check on the guests.

Have eaten here several times. The food has always been good as well as the service. I especially like the chicken breastfeeding with chorizo sausage. Hot food, good service and reasonable prices.

Not worth the walk in the door. Service was mediocre,food was bland and overpriced for a lunch. Had to ask multiple times for a drink.

We ate here for years, but menu became bland. Recent changes to the menu brought us back & it was worth it. Same manager who we like. Quick service & very good food for the money.

Service was excellent from start to finish. Tortilla chips and salsa provided with free refills. Very extensive menu with many options. We enjoyed the chips and salsa, tacos, enchiladas, rice and beans. The spinach cheese quesadilla was very greasy and I couldn't finish it. The food is rich and very filling.

Good food. Good service. Menu is a bit confusing but that's just because there's so much to choose from. Plenty of parking. Nice little area for shopping and eating.

My first time to this restaurant. Waiter sat us then apparently forget to let our server know we were there so it took about 20 minutes just to get a menu. Thank goodness another couple who came in after us sat nearby so I flagged the waitress at that time as she went to get their drinks. Alot of people... More

Having tried all of them, San Felipe is hands down the best Mexican food in our area. I especially like their Fajita Nachos. Generally the service is very friendly and fast. We like the décor and the cleanliness of this restaurant as well.

Thank Dave G
