Yummy Delicious Mexican Food.
Maybe I was just too hungry. My dinner tasted fantastic even though I don't usually like Mexican cuisine. My taste buds, for some obscure reasons, have always been hostile against rice and beans.
But bot this time. I was able to savor every single bit of that Rotisserie Chicken Burrito in perfect harmony. I even felt slightly gratified when I reached for that one last bite. Half of my rice and beans were still untouched but that was expected. The food on that plate was quite possibly larger than my stomach.
If I ever crave for Mexican food I will know exactly where to go.
Great Food and Great People!!!.
Let me start by saying I live in south San Jose and the only Mexican food that my family will eat is Fiesta Del Mar Too, which is 30 minutes away.
The 3 main factors in are assessment, Quality, People and Quality.
The restaurant is VERY popular so go early if you want to sit right down, otherwise, take some time in the bar and learn about tequila's. Ask Roberto(the Manager) to help you learn about the history of tequila and some of his experiences touring the factories in Jalisco.
They have very traditional Mexican food as well as some of the newer generational styles. I have tried just about everything on the menu over the past 10 years and although I have enjoyed all that I have tried, I tend to prefer the meat dishes(Chili Verde, Carne Asada, Enjaccacado,etc). The meat is always very tasty and plentiful. Even their grilled New York steak would rival any steakhouse. My wife really enjoys the tortilla soup. My daughters usually order the waiters special. Ask your waiter what their favorite thing is and try it. Many times it isn't on the menu and you will have a new favorite food!
The staff there is extremely friendly and courteous. They keep the chips and salsa filled and the drinks fresh. Don't even think of ordering Jose Cuervo at this establishment. They only carry real 100% blue agave tequila (you may not know this but Cuervo is not technically tequila. It is like a grain alcohol with yellow food coloring).
As for the margaritas, WOW! I am a bit of a tequila/margarita snob and will not tolerate amateurs making my cocktail. Fresh Mexican limes, Fresh sweet and sour and a heavy-handed pour make a margarita you will never forget. Want a little kick; ask for the Herradura Blanco 92, rocks.
Go to this resturaunt and enjoy yourself. If you go in the prime eating times, enjoy the wait in the bar. You will meet some great people and try some great drinks. Try new foods on and off the menu. Do not order what you always get somewhere else.
Best mexican food in town. My favorite mexican joint and I have eaten at too many of them. Their enchilada enjococcado is fantastic and can be made as totally vegetarian. in fact, there are a lot of options of vegetarians other than the regular cheese enchilada / beans and rice you find anywhere else. their enchilada sauces are notably good. the waitstaff is always courteous and takes good care of you. and last but not the least... best margaritas and outstanding list of great tequilas.
A great place for margaritas and seafood dishes..
Bites We Like
Apart from the usual tacos, burritos, quesadillas, enchiladas and salads, the camarones Charlie are wonderful--shrimp and rice sauteed in jalapenos, capers, wine and garlic.
The three salsas that appear at the table appeal to the mad scientist within. There's a mild, fruity tomatillo, a deeply flavored chile de arbol and vinegar, and a fiery red salsa that keeps you communing with your beer.
Not the booziest around, nor do they come in all kinds of wacky flavors. Fiesta del Mar has a decent selection of tequilas for shots, some of them smooth as cognac (for these, eschew the lime and the salt; just belt it and exhale).
Great Mexican Restaurant.
Definitely my favorite mexican restaurant in the Moutain View / Palo Alto area. Very tasty enchiladas!
Loud and bright, but what else would you want in a Mexican restaurant!?
Totally authentic. Gotta disagree with the review about the Margaritas! Ours were extremely potent and I couldn't help but notice the special 3 page Margarita menu. It was standing room only at 7pm on a Friday night , no surprise there. A steady flow of chips and their 3 salsas kept us going while we ordered. Our dinners arrived in record time and the food was fantastic. The only thing a bit disappointing was the typical grocery store type flour tortillas that came with the carnitas and maybe the decibel level in the restaurant...it's quite loud. The food and service was great and I'd definitely recommend it for delicious authentic Mexican food!
Superb. The food is great, the service equally good. A fun place for fantastic food. My favoirte is Camarones Alex with one of their great Margaritas, but don't ignore their quesadillas, especially with chicken. All reasonably priced.
