It was very good. I loved the queso and the chicken quesadilla was different but really good. I ordered the appitizer portion and it was more than enough for lunch.

This is our favorite local place for Mexican food. The hibiscus tea is fantastic. We love the fish tacos, vegetarian tacos, and the taco soup. Generous portions and free chips and salsa. My kids love eating here too and it's not difficult to find something that suits their palate. Friendly staff that bring food to your table after you order... More

This was our go to date night place for at least a year. The management change and alterations to the decor and recipes have not been good. Sadly we just can't support this local business any more.

I have been going to Petra for a few years. After the rebranding, a few changes happened which made the experience less enjoyable. I dont eat chicken/pork/beef so I always got shrimp tacos with two side salads since all other sides contain animal products. Now, it's $2 for a teeny salad. Good food but not many options for those who... More

Seems a lot of "food bloggers" have no clue what Petra serves. It is not tex mex, if it was they would serve Taco Bell tacos and refried beans. I come here for lunch at least once per week with a few coworkers. The managers are always quick to fix any problem, the staff has always been helpful and friendly.... More

This place was not great at all. Especially their chips and so called queso...so gross!!! We felt we were eating paper, not a good taste. Their taco's & tostada's were just ok, nothing special about them . One employee asked us how we liked the chips, we did express our feeling, later to see them throwing them all out in... More

It started out great, but has become so mediocre. The staff seems disorganized and the service haphazard. One of the 2 salsas served with chips seemed to have solidified, so we avoided it. My Chicken Mexicana was tough and tasteless. Even the lime rice and Mexican pasta we liked so much in the past is not the same. We hoped... More

Petra's is different, A good different. Menu is unique, food is oustanding, prices are reasonable. I wish the location was more convenient, but I love this place.

Typically very good. However, recently it's been okay. The burrito is great and plenty to share with someone. Queso and tacos are good. The daily specials seem to be hit or miss.
