“fresh, delicious, authentic”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Gutierrez & Rico’s Drive-In is the place to go for fresh and delicious, authentic Mexican food. The place is filled with locals and Mexicans, which is always a good sign that you are about to eat some great food. The dining area is small as most people get their orders to-go. Feel free to sit in the parking lot and eat your food in your car. You probably won’t make it down the road very far anyway and it’s much safer than trying to eat while driving. This is Mexican food at its finest without the fancy restaurant, so you get it at a fabulous price.

“off the beaten path, but worth it!!!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is a great place to get authentic mexican food. The burritos are awesome! Most everything I've had there is terrific. Most people just get stuff to go. There is a large selection of items and they are always busy!!

“W!hat a great tasting Mexican food restaurant, seafood, carnitas, etc.”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

I have been visiting this restaurant since they opened in the 70s, it used to be a Hamburger drive in, and Gutierrez and Rico started serving the best carnitas, carne asada and seafood, food it's all ways the best, the service too, I love the combination dish Tierra y Mar, a grilled skirt steak and 3 large grilled prawns with green salad, beans, delicious! I'll recommend it to everyone, just the Best!
