Great Food But That's All

Great food...but understaffed & no ambiance.

Rather have the WHOLE package.

User review by carymwphd

I can't imagine that the person who posted a negative review was at the same restaurant. Estrellita's is hands-down the best, most authentic country-style Mexican food on the mid-Peninsula. If El Torito-style, Mexican food for the masses is what you're after, don't come here. If you're interested in complex sauces, flavorful combinations, and enough food for leftovers the next day, this is the place.
Try the specials--they change monthly, and they always feature local dishes from the southern states of Mexico. The chicken pibil is outstanding, the chiles en nogada are heavenly, the rose petal chicken is to die for. You half-expect the women from ""Like Water for Chocolate"" to come out and serve you your dinner. If you go, you'll see why the place has been going strong for over 40 years.

This is a wonderful restaurant--we never leave disappointed. The specials are always different and seasonal, but the menu mainstays are also awesome. Delicious and authentic!

One of the Best

Ignore the negative comments on this page, this is simply one of the best authentic Mexican restaurants in the Peninsula. I would not give up one of my favorite restaurants for public consumption, but this is a family run restaurant that is a mainstay of the Bay Area. Ask anyone who has been there, who actually knows something about classical Mexican cuisine, and they will tell you that Estrellita is unsurpassed.

It's not fancy, and there are no stars or celebrities on the walls, it's just an excellent place to bring your friends and family for a great meal, with a friendly, knowledgeable staff. Family owned and operated for over 40 years, and not by accident.

Try it, you'll see (and taste) for yourself.
