Pretty much a souped-up taqueria with prices to match. However there aren't a lot of choices in the immediate area if you want great authentic taqueria food. La Taqueria (SF) it is not ;(

40 minutes to get food to table. Arrogant server. Food finally arrived. Cold. Salad came out with no dressing. We often get it to go, 50% chance order will be right.

Located in the heart of downtown Los Gatos, Andales has 2 sites. I like the one on the same side as the Apple store if I am eating in because it has an indoor and very nice outdoor patio. If I am getting takeout, I eat at the smaller site across the street because it backs up to a large parking lot. My favorites are the chicken with goat cheese salad (dressing on the side), posole soup on the weekends (has pork and chicken) and tortilla soup during the week. They have really good sangria in a large mug with fresh fruit and there fresh fruit drinks of the day are "to die for." Friends favorites are the chile relleno (plate or burrito), and the shrimp and fish dishes. In the larger restaurant, the single restroom is outside but small and awkward to get into. You have to order at the counter at both sites.

A chain that has quality. Andale Taqueria has a few restaurants located in the bay area, there is even one located in Terminal 2 at SFO. The Los Gatos location has a lot of charm and is very popular with the locals. There are two locations in Los Gatos I prefer the one on the westside of the street, it has a cozy patio to dine in. The food is tasty, they offer a nice selections of salsas from mild to spicy!!!

Upscale taqueria that has much more than tacos. Good sauces and salsas. Fresh ingredients. Polite staff. The highlight of this place is the outdoor patio. You can enjoy good food in luxurious tropical setting that makes you feel that you are not in a downtown area. It's serene, warm, inviting, cozy, and well appointed. Considering that this place occupies a rather narrow but long (deep) lot, they have done a great job to make this inviting patio in the rear with high walls and tasteful vegetation, including sun shades and heaters to adjust to many different seasons.
