Think I would rather have Taco Bell. Nachos looked like something I made myself at home...would rather just have the traditional nachos with side of salsa/guac/queso! Chips were super greasy. Kids ordered cheese quesadillas and they were huge however the cheese they use is also super greasy...made my 14yr old queasy. We thought the rice and beans were descent. The... More

This is another fixture for our family when we go out to eat, We go here often for the California Burrito!! Although everything i've had was excellent & You get what you pay for, Nothing really fancy, It's a more down home style place to eat!! That's what most of us like about this place, The horchata is excellent!! Stop... More

I was very pleased with the portion and the taste. Everything was extremely wonderful until I found a long hair in my enchilada. That really messed everything up for me. I know accidents happen, but hopefully they are wearing hairnets and practicing all of the health standards well. Like I said before though, I very pleased with the taste and... More

So if you're used to eating junk food and fast-food that's really cheap you might like this place. If you're someone who likes healthy food you will not want to get anywhere near it. I don't remember what I ordered but but I do remember it was just a plate full of slop. That's the only way to describe it.... More

After getting in around 7pm on Christmas Day, there wasn't much open, we didn't want fast food. We had heard good things about this place, and everything we heard was true. It was very good & made to order. It is a walk up to order, kinda like fast food. The beans & rice were good, the tacos, quesadillas were... More

Food was unremarkable but good. Mixed drink was strong, though I'm not a great judge of that. Service was friendly. Decor was dive bar.

Santana's was nearly the only place open on Christmas day, and we were pleasantly surprised. We ordered a bean tostada, potato rolled tacos and a grilled taco burrito. The food was abundant and tasty. The mild salsa and the avocado salsa were delicious with our meal. We got a lot of food for very little money. The service was excellent.
