“Authentic and delicious Mexican - try the carnitas!”
Review of Cosina's Donamaria

Reviewed August 6, 2012

An authentic, family run Mexican place with great food and good, friendly, and prompt service. The burritos were huge (we should have split them) but hot and delicious. We had carnitas (wonderful) and chicken (good). We came at lunchtime and there were a few other customers there - it seemed like they were mostly locals who knew where to go for authentic and delicious Mexican food. It took us a little longer than a fast food place, about a half hour total, but the wait was absolutely worthwhile.

This is a great place to stop on the way north on I-5. The town is really small, and it is easy on-and-off the highway. We will definitely be back!

Very good carnitas, eggs and chorizo. Nice variety of chile and salas to choose from for your food or chips.

Traveling I-5 about 50 miles North of Sacramento, you might take the Arbuckle/College City exit and continue North through the small town of Arbuckle. Within a few blocks, you will find on the left the most wonderful Mexican restaurant in all of Northern California......"Taqueria Mexico".....Superb,freshly made food, served by one family, Octovio and Maria Romero and their children. Prices are outstanding.....very ample portions.....all made from scratch.....If you like pork, I suggest the Carnitas Combination platter.....excellent!! The chile Rellenos are something to rave about!!! Check it out....You won't be disappointed. Many nice Mexican beers and sodas also..... : )
