“The real deal for Mexican food”
Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

Really good food! You need to be able to look past the physical structure and decor. It is old and shabby. Service is great.

“Better than average”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

In west Sonoma County it is difficult to find great Mexican food (having once lived in Dallas). Martha's steps up to the plate and serves some pretty good food. The "crispy" fish tacos are an innovative and delightful choice. The chicken enchilada's were above average. We will return next time we're in the mood for Mexican food because their food far surpasses any of the local taqueria's in the area.

“Love Martha's”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

We love Martha's! The Enchiladas Cancun are incredible! I'm usually enjoying my meal so much, I don't remember what my husband has ordered... except Martha always brings him her private hot sauce from behind the counter, which turns him a few shades of red, it's so much fun to watch. The service can be a bit slow but it's usually bacause they're so busy, a very popular spot. I think it's worth the wait.

“Great food & ambiance. Very slow service.”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

I have lived in Sebastopol for 6 1/2 years. I try Martha's once a year to see if the service any better. Not as of yet, but will try again next week. It should not take 20 minutes to simply get your drink or to order. Wait staff never been very friendly when I've gone. Will try one more time.
