Drove from my hotel in Foster City up El Camino Real when we turned down Peninsual Ave we saw the restaurant and decided to give it a try. We didn't regret it.
The chimachunga's are great, try it if ýou get to the area

We stopped in here for dinner on a Tuesday night. We were seated in a very nice booth with a window looking into the interior patio. Delicious chip, salsa and water were brought to our table immediately. Although I usually have a chile relleno, I decided to try something different and ordered the Steak a la Mexicana, a broiled 10 oz. steak, grilled onions, tomato slices and sliced avocado, which is served with rice and beans. I requested the steak medium rare, and it was done to perfection. I'll definitely be back to enjoy this steak dish. Our party also had an enchilada verde which was delicious.

Visiting the area from out of state and our grandkids told us that this was one of their favorites. And now I can understand why. They have a great variety of food and everything we ordered was very fresh, hot, and tasty. There wasn't a wait as seems to be common in lots of restaurants in the area. The wait staff was very nice and helpful with the menu items. We had lots to eat and a nice snack left to take home. I really appreciated the reasonable prices. We want to go back on our next trip to the area.
