“Nice place to stop on 101”
Review of El Michoacano Restaurant - CLOSED

El Michoacano Restaurant
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 18, 2012

My wife and I often drive from the San Francisco Bay area down to southern California along Highway 101, and we like to try different places for a lunch stop. We recently tried the El Michoacano Restaurant in Greenfield, and liked it. We can't call ourselves experts on Mexican food, but we each enjoyed the carnitas burrito lunch--we had more than enough food, and it was fresh and tasty. It was also nice to get a bottle of Mexican Coca Cola, which many of our friends rave about because it's made with real sugar. The next time we're ready for lunch while driving in the area between Salinas and King City, we'll stop again at El Michoacano.

El Michoacano is like my favorite restaurant in Zihautanejo. Cheerful murals painted on the walls, friendly staff, large selection of cold Mexican beer....and some of the most tasty SHRIMP TACOS I've ever had. (At a $1.75 each order a few if your really hungry) We also ordered a shrimp tostada which came so loaded down with shrimp it resembled an open-faced shrimp cocktail.
If you're running up or down HWY 101, Greenfield is a nice little farming town to stop and chill out to expierence some Hispanic Culture and great cuisine at good prices.

The food is excellent, and they do large portions. They have wonderful Carne asada and carnitas... The only problem is that there is usually loud music from the jukebox...
