“Best Mexican Food on the road!!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

We were starving... we have driven this route (101) quite a bit between SF and LA, and had only stopped in Greenfield once... when we stumbled into a parade -- horses, costumes, men and women dancing. We thought we would try for a restaurant here... this is a cute little place, with a welcoming waitress... food is served very quickly, and these are among the best tacos and tostadas we have ever had (tacos tie with La Taqueria in SF). Lots of local business, a tuly restful and great find. We'll be back!

“Clean, friendly, yummy food!”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

My wife and I stopped on our Vespa vacation on the way from Atascadero to Carmel via the Carmel Valley Road. It's a very clean restaurant, on a main street, easy to find (we used GPS). I had a shrimp crispy taco and Kathy had a salad, both were great. Very reasonable prices and very friendly and helpful service, would definitely go back.

“Nice place to stop on 101”
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.

“Like being transported to the Pacific coast of Mexico”
Reviewed August 10, 2010

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...”
Reviewed March 28, 2010

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...
