Food was sub par, salsa was sweet, drinks were watered down. Service was sub par as well didn't pay much attention.

The salsa was sooooo good. Maybe one of the best chips and salsa I have had. My burrito was average, a little below expectations as the cheese wasn't even melted inside. But the salsa made up for it, in some ways

Love this friendly authentic Mexican food ! Happy hour is great with deep discounts on draft beer and margaritas. Love the salsa, just enough onions and spices too!

A birthday celebration brought us to Santi's. Our family and friends enjoyed a fun atmosphere, great food and a friendly staff. Our waiter engaged our children in Spanish having been told they are learning the language in school. Every entrée was delicious. Burritos, enchiladas even the salsa was great.

Santi's is located in what used to be a Huddle House. It sits on North Morrison Drive, nearly in North Charleston. When it first opened, we thought it might be dicey. Now, many years down the road, it's still as good as it always has been. More authentic than most, they serve a wide variety of dishes. My favorites include... More

My son loves this restaurant because he can get a vegan entrée. It's one of his favorites and he takes everyone who visits there. Food and drinks are good and so is the service. We enjoyed sitting outdoors.

By authentic I mean it's okay. Good and solid average Mexican. They like to put lots of cheese on tamales and burritos, which is fine if you like it. Margaritas are good. Service is great. Atmosphere is of a hard working family restaurant. I had the pork enchiladas with green sauce, and ate it all happily. Not too salty and... More
