“nice folks, great food, FABULOUS drink selection”
Reviewed July 1, 2012 via mobile

Came her while staying in Brisbane on our visit to the Bay Area. Were craving Mexican food after being away from Texas for over a week. First thing, were blown away by the (non-alcoholic) drink selection, including diet bottled root beer and fruit nectars. Sign of a thoughtful management style. We 3 each had different dishes and they were all great, using fresh ingredients and authentic seasonings. Nice chips, salsa and Pico de Gallo while you're waiting for your food to come out. We'll be back !

“Wonderful Mexican Food, Low Prices”
Reviewed November 12, 2011

We were staying at a nearby hotel and were looking for some Mexican food in Brisbane. Luckily, my wife found this establishment nearby, rated high by locals. We ordered to go 2 "dry" burritos, meaning without red sauce and grated cheese on top, and 1 "wet" with the above. They were both excellent, probably one of the best meals we ate while in the San Francisco area. Extremely tasty food that was inexpensive. If you are staying in Brisbane or near the SFO airport, I highly recommend this place for authentic Mexican food. Can't wait to go back sometime.

We ordered our food to go, so I can't really comment on the ambience. However, we did wait to pick up our food inside the restaurant. It was very quiet without many patrons there since it was a weeknight. It looked like a typical restaurant/sports establishment with TV's, posters of Budweiser girls, etc.

Try this place, you'll be happy you went there.
