“Authentic Mexican Food and Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised by the overall quality of the food and the very friendly atmosphere and service. I felt like I was in Cabo, and the Margaritas were GREAT. Prices were fair and the portions adequate. I will repeat and refer my friends to this little part of south of the border in Wine Country.

“Taco Tuesdays $1”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

They have a great selection of interesting tacos and authentic atmosphere. The restaurant has recently changed hands and they are doing a wonderful job. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside is Mexico.

“great mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

paza tequila got a nice review/writeup in the santa rosa newspaper a couple months ago and we decided to finally give it a try. the 20 minute drive from home over to sonoma ws well worth it. we dropped by for lunch and found ample parking. the exterior of the building is freshly painted and appropriately landscaped with palms and agaves. the restaurant itself is immaculately clean and the decor is unique with each booth and chair hand carved and painted in bright colors. service was wonderful, attentive and timely. a basket of freshtortilla chips, accompanied by a well spiced red sauce and a sweeter green tomatillo and lime sauce came to the table as soon as we were seated.
every one likely has a standard by which you make a comparison to determine how well the food matches up to whatever you like. for me, my measure of good mexican is always the chile relleno. so many california mexican restaurants trot out a flavorless chile dragged thru a heavy batter and practically deep fried, nothing at all like the chile rellenos i dream about when we travel in mexico. finally, finally, i have found an authentic mexican preparation of the chile relleno without requiring my passport. the poblano chile was large, fresh, packed with hot, perfectly meltd cheese. the relleno is only lightly battered and then carefully pan fried. it's as good as i've ever had,anywhere. i also had a fish taco which was excellent. the fish, though a little sparse, was moist, flaky, and wonderful. my wife also had a fish taco which she did not care for, the fish being a little undercooked to her palate. her chicken enchalada was nicely filled with succulent chicken, and the sauce over it was perfect balance of savory, not too sweet, not overly spicy.. all the food items are priced more along what you'd find in a tiny taqueria, very fair and by comparison to so many other "mexican" restaurants, practically cheap.
imported mexican beers by the bottle for $4. their top shelf margarita priced at $8 seemed fair enough compared to the $10-12 top shelf margs found elsewhere.
they also have mariachi music on the weekends, happy hour drink and appetizer specials, and a good sized covered outdoor patio for dining.
suffice it to say, i would, and will drive back for more of these authentic tastes of mexico.

“Great find on a Sunday afternoon!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

We were on our way back from a tennis tournment and very hungry. We were so pleased to find this place open on a sunday. We had eaten here 4 yrs ago after an out of town tournament. This Sunday the place was filled with many families , enjoying each other's company. Many were Latinos and if a Latino eats here it must be very good, and it was!!!! We will stop there again anytime we are in the area.
