Good value for the money, but not spectacular and nothing to write home about. Free chips and salsa, are just that, free so don't mind the broken chips and salsa in plastic jello shot cups. Margaritas were a let down. They used to be potent...More

We lunched here earlier this month. Been coming to Ventura's since the early 1980's. The food and the service has continued to be consistent. This establishment tends to become rather busy Thursday through Saturday in the evenings. So you might be better off going early...More

Thanks for your review Shelley - but we're perplexed as to why you only gave us 3 stars? Sounds like you like our restaurant...we do look forward to your next visit.

Been going here for years enjoy most things, except the salsa, it isn’t good at all and has gotten worse over the years they should find a better vendor.

This is the worst Mexican food I've ever had at a restaurant. My cheese enchiladas tasted like a block of Velveeta, the beans had NO flavor and the "Mexican rice" wasn't fully cooked. Ps. Mexican rice isn't red. My margarita (although tiny) was the highlight...More
