Friendly service, good food, nice atmosphere. I really like their chairs--very colorful! We've never had to wait for a table, but sometimes the service is slow. Good selection on the menu and tasty entrees. Great margaritas!

We visit Estrellita from time to time. It tends to specialize in Oaxacan and Sonoran style Mexican food. Beware that parking is very tricky here, both as there are few spots, as well as the lot is shallow.

We've been going here our whole lives! We absolutely love this place! Great service, great food, authentic mexican cuisine. This is NOT a fast food "tex-mex" kind of place. Very family friendly, and terrific with large groups--but make a reservation. Can get busy around the holidays and at lunch.

Since discovering Estrellita a few years back...it's been one of my favorites for true mexican cuisine on the peninsula. It's also handy from my workplace.

Parking is the only negative I can state. Get there well before the lunch hour to secure parking. Otherwise....it can be a real challenge.

Food is great, service is great, price is excellent, variety of fantastic. Check out their Mole.....

A+

Took a group for a business lunch. Parking was okay but the inside decor was wonderful. Helped set a casual atmosphere for good discussions. The server was very attentive and brought our food promptly. Everything looked wonderful and everyone was pleased. The portions were just the right size for lunch. Did not order drinks but the bar looked like a nice place to sit and relax. Would suggest adding ceiling fans.
