“"Your typical Mexican Restaurant"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

No surprises here . . .everything is just as you expect from a Mexican restaurant. There were lots of chips and salsa brought to the table. Some of us ordered Margaritas -- the typical drink. Others ordered wine -- not the best but OK. Choices were what one would expect -- toastadas, enchiladas, fish tacos, taco salad . . .you name your combination choice and they had it. Was it the best food we ever had? No! Was it OK and got the job done? Yes. Would I rush back there to eat again? Probably not when there are many other choices. Fresco, a Mediterranean restaurant, was right next door. I'd give that one a look next time.

“Easy Celebration Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

Always a top pick for family birthday's or just an easy dinner out with young children. We always get great service. Water glasses are filled constantly and the chips and salsa show up as soon as we are seated. I love the enchilada ranchero. We have used them to cater a kids birthday party and the food was good, inexpensive and made the whole day less stressful. Great value and good food.

“Good Restaurant, bad location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

The Yolanda's Restaurants in Ventura County are a great place to go for Mexican food but this Ventura location is in a run down part of town. The building is old the parking lot is a wreck and the service was mediocre. Skip this one and go to Oxnard at Seabridge Center on Victoria

Food is good and a nice atmosphere. Love the Salsa and Chips and the Chile Relleno is also very good. Oh and don't forget the flan!

“Great Happy Hour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

I went here the first time with a group of volunteers I work with and I was very glad I did. The Margaritas are wonderful and they lay out a spread of "appetizers" you can make a meal of! Wonderful!
