Went for lunch with my daughter. She wanted to order and I chose to go through the buffet. The variety was good. I had trouble making a taco while holding my plate, so I just piled it all on. The flavors were good though.

I do not know what is going on with Yolanda's on Main St. We have been going there for years. In the past few months it seems to be going down-hill. I still think that they have the best Albondigas soup in Ventura. I will continue to go back for that as much as possible. The happy hour is delicious... More

We hosted the rehearsal dinner for our son's wedding at Yolanda's last week. It was a great experience. We had 38 guests including 5 children ages 2 to 11. We live in Oregon, and had only been to Yolanda's once, but the banquet manager, Tino, was very helpful with any questions I had . We visited the restaurant a couple... More

We had one of the best margaritas ever at this restaurant. Not too sweet. Food was also excellent. I had the fish tacos and the fish was grilled to perfection. I also liked the seafood sauce and the fact that the sauce was served on the side. The restaurant is very large so, in spite of the fact that we... More

The food is good however, there's one waiter there that has very little patience. I've been in customer service over 20 years and it's important to have an employee who loves their job. My family goes here often so I decided to go and after I wanted to change my drink order the waiter literally rolled his eyes and said... More

Three of us dined here last night. The restaurant decor is typical of the run of the mill Mexican place. Nothing very creative or different. The food was okay. I had the Santa Fe Chef's Salad served in a taco shell. The salad contained a lot of shredded meat. Nicely spiced pork and chicken. I would order this again. One... More

Their banana margarita was lacking flavor and alcohol. The salsa was more like spicy marinara sauce than salsa. Even the green sauce was bad. The food was okay. The veggies were stir fry veggies, not Mexican blend. The ranch was great. The tortillas were hard and cold. The service was spotting at best. We had to go find someone for... More

We were taken here for dinner by my niece. We each had the combination plates with one taco and one enchilada which included a regular salad. Everything was fresh and very good, but not too spicy.
