Basic Mexican fare but done well, along with reasonable prices. I ordered their shrimp enchilada special, which came with lots of shrimp, not just a little as you might get elsewhere.

I have been eating at Cafe San Martin for my whole life (off and on) as it seems to be good at times, and not so good at other times. This last time was for a birthday dinner, at the request of the birthday girl. The server was great, but the place was VERY dirty, and the food mediocre at best. I think coming back is no longer an option. 5 out of the 8 diners had "intestinal issues" after dinner and into the wee hours of the morning.

If your looking to get a healthier meal try a chicken or bean tostada with no cheese. They use white chicken breast meat . Not dark noby gristle like some of the other resturants do(YUCK). My daughter loves the tamales, husband loves the chili rellenos, son love the chicken tacos. Taco tuesdays are a blast. Great prices! They need a remodel really bad. But if that changes the food then just remodel the restrooms because they are digusting!! I wish the owner would focus his time on this resturant. Because his other resturants are aweful!! The salsa here and the chips are the best in town. The waitresses are excellent and greet you with a warm smile. If you go there a few times they even know your name!!

I love the chicken mole. I order it at the to go window and the only down fall is the price changes depending on who takes my order. Sometimes its $9.98 and sometimes it's $11.01. Since I don't speak spanish it's impossible to get an explanation.

Came here a lot as a kid and always had taquitos or shredded beef tacos. Always wondered why dinner took so long -- it was because parents were waiting for slow-cooked chili verde to be ready. Now I know to do the same, or if in a hurry get some taquitos and an order if chili colorado.
