I wasn't planning to buy lunch but a homeless, hungry, diabetic man asked for some food and not cash. I went to El Faro across the way and spoke to the owner Hugo about the situation and asked him to pay for half the meal for the hungry guy and I would pay for half and by myself a meal for his kindness in helping out. Hugo said I did not need to buy myself a meal and he bought the guy some healthy food that would not hinder blood sugar issues. I went ahead and bought myself a burrito as a good will/thank you gesture which was out of this world. Excellent seasoning, tender chicken, great proportions. I will now be a regular supporter b/c of the owner's good deed and b/c the food and service are excellent. Please show your support for El Faro and Hugo, we need more like this to help out those who for whatever reason have lost their way!
I'm literally eating their food right now. Wonderful food, relaxed quiet laid back and clean atmosphere, good place to eat out with a friend or take-out. ALWAYS good service, and ALWAYS good yummy food, complicated order not a problem. I always leave happy! Prices seem a little stiff until you get your meal and realize it's tomorrows lunch too. Huge portions. Free chip, salsa, guac bar. The game always on. They put Nutmeg in the Hortchata which I hate but everything else is consistently awesome! Must try for out of towners and for people wanting authentic tasting food without the 10 hour drive to the border.
This is the best hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant in the area. Sure you can get fancier meals, but this is the place to go if you want solid food from any part of the menu. Workers in the area know it, too. There is usually a line out the door from noon to 12:30. But it goes fast and the staff are fantastic. Tip: try the breakfast burritos. You have to specify exactly what you want on it, but they are amazing.
A group of friends and I make Dos Coyotes our lunch place of choice when we ae shopping in the Arden Fair vicinity. We always get great food at great prices delivered quickly by friendly, helpful servers. As strange as it seems, I love their soda machine. One can rarely get Dr. Pepper at a restaurant, but to also have the option of Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper is unbelievable.
Tres Hermanas - you definitely don't go here for the service. I have had some of the slowest and worth service at TH and the only way they even get three stars is because you cannot beat the food. I prefer simple carne asada or el pastor tacos and they have some of my favorite. Again, great food, just super shaky on their service.
Killer food and awesome atmosphere. I've been multiple times, but Sunday mid-mornings they have a great mariachi band that roam around the restaurant. Great way to kick off any day. I've had everything from the street tacos, burritos the size of my forearm and their carne asada...needless to say, you can't go wrong.
Service took a long time to get started but was fine once it did. I didn't like it that the hostess sat us at a table that hadn't been wiped down clean, but it was almost their closing time so maybe that was her excuse. Food was good, especially the steak, would definitely come back to order that again.
One of Sacramento Oldest & Best Mexican Restaurants. The food and service is good here. Lots of locals have been coming here for a long time, parking is in the back. Good for family get togethers or to bring your dinner date. This place has a long history of serving good food to good people.
Delicious authentic mexican food Im so glad they are coming to Roseville. Its family own and the dishes are wonderful. I get the ceviche tostadas, the kids have the quesadillas and my husband gets their carne asada tacos. On the weekend they have menudo and they make their own fruit smoothies.
You'll probably wait for your food, but luckily you'll get a basket of chips and the best salsa in Sacramento to keep you busy. And once your food arrives, it won't matter because it's just that good. Do yourself a favor and get the verde sauce on your enchiladas. Spicy, authentic, perfect.
