“Enjoyed the patio”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Friday night, after the Farmers Market/Craft Fair. We chose to sit at the bar outside where they only serve taquitos--chicken, carne asado, al pastor. Can recommend the beer, tequila and taquitos without reservation, salsa and chips are quite good, and the setting is very nice. The inside was overly air conditioned and the menu just didn't seem to offer anything special. We were happy to have stayed on the patio.

“Only average”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Was the average Mexican style meal. Not especially tasty, but not terrible. Chips were not our favorite and the salsa was too spicy for us.

“Taste Buds Won't Be Disappointed”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Headed for Mendocino? Eureka? Why not stop in Cloverdale for great Mexican food at the Hacienda. Easy on and off freeway, and plenty of free parking. (No meters in Cloverdale). Food is served by polite waiters and is excellent. If you are not the driver, enjoy a cold Margarita with your meal. You won't be disappointed.

“Just average”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

This restaurant was within walking distance, so we decided to give it a try despite the less than stellar reviews. First, the good part. Service was very propmt and courteous. The quantities were very large. One entre would easily have been enough for my wife and I. The food, however, was neither Mexican nor particularily good. As others described it, the typical American version you would find at a strip mall Mexican restaurant. There are better places to eat in Clovedale.

“Plentiful, delicious Mexican food”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

A great place for Mexican food. Best salsa in the state -- but the chips are too thick, greasy and not very tasty. (Not likely to change - same chips served for 20 years.) Wonderful combo platters, flour tortillas, burritos -- heck, there's hardly anything on the menu that isn't the best you can find in a Mexican restaurant. Biggest problem: they have the hardest wooden chairs on the planet. Bring a pillow!
