Service was a bit slow, but the food was amazing and huge portions. I’d give it 5 stars if we hadn’t had to wait for 45 minutes for the food and it wasn’t even that busy.

This was just okay. The air conditioning if they had any wasn't working and had been 109 that day. Stopped for dinner and they do have ceiling fans. My husband had the steak burrito and I had the shredded beef Flautas. Food did come quickly.

There are few choices in Three Rivers for dining out. This place seemed busy and we were hungry. The service was so slow and the food was distinctly average. Our tortilla chips were over cooked and burnt. The prices are very high for what it...is too. Not returning.More

Our family loved our lunch here. There is good parking, good service. Seating is available inside or out on the patio. As noted, there aren't many dinner choices in 3R and this has to be one of the best. The food was very fresh, well-spiced....This is not your typical mushy pseudo Mexican. I had the chile verde stew, which has wonderful flavor. The enchiladas and everything were terrific. If V (I forget is her name is Veronica or Victoria) made her delicious flan, make sure to order some. In fact, ask for her as your server.More

This was a great little place we visited before heading to Sequoia NP. The menu options were varied and very reasonably priced. Food was excellent and staff was super friendly and attentive. Outdoor seating was shady and cool, but there was also indoor seating available....Atmosphere was relaxed. Tables and seats were worn, but clean—Exactly as expected. Definitely worth the stop.More

Limited dining options in town for visitors to the NP and all close early. Take out only due to covid restrictions at this time. Service was not fast. Ordered flautas combo and enchilada burrito combo for like $25 plus tax for the 2 of us...to eat in our room. We have had better for less the price and will not be repeat customersMore

I live in the Valley and Casa Mendoza's is my go to place for good Mexican food. I make sure to always stop there for their Chicken salads or enchiladas! You can eat outside on their lovely patio or inside (kinda small). Either way, give...it a try!More

If you’re in Three Rivers, you have very few choices for dinner. Casa Mendoza may be your best option. They have a large menu offering something for everyone. The seating is only outside for now, but they have set up a number of tables on...the patio. Know going in that they are understaffed, but they are doing the best they can and the wait won’t be too long. On the night we were there, there was one waitress for the entire restaurant. And she did a great job, and was happy and friendly with everyone. The food is good and not expensive. I would recommend Casa Mendoza to anyone looking for dinner in Three Rivers.More

We got shrimp tacos and half a chicken quesadilla. Lots of food, got leftovers to take back. Service was very slow.

Excellent food!! Took a little while to order but considering the challenges these businesses are going through, you have to be patient. They had outside dining and the tables were all spaced part. The food was amazing...I had the Shrimp Tostada and my sister had...the Asada Tacos. The asada meat had a chargrilled flavor, very good!! The shrimp tostada was fresh and very tasty. The prices were reasonable, food was good, and the service was awesome. I highly recommend this place if you are visiting the parks.More
