Stop in Greenfield for amazing authentic Mexican food. The burritos are simple with meat and beans. Can attest to delicious quality chile Verde and carnitas. There is a large selection of seafood and specialty plates as well.

A few years ago we stopped in Greenfield for lunch on a drive from LA to SF, and ended up eating at El Michoacano. Ever since, anytime we're headed up or down Hwy 101 we make a point of stopping here. The food is delicious and the service is great.

Fast friendly service. Easy to find location just a little way off the highway. Homemade chips and smoky tomatillo salsa. Carne asada tacos very good. Homemade corn tortillas very good. Pina drink entertainingly bright green and sweet. Shrimp in Diabla sauce out of this world. Not a fan of their style of beans and it took a little whe to... More

We were starving... we have driven this route (101) quite a bit between SF and LA, and had only stopped in Greenfield once... when we stumbled into a parade -- horses, costumes, men and women dancing. We thought we would try for a restaurant here... this is a cute little place, with a welcoming waitress... food is served very quickly,... More

My wife and I stopped on our Vespa vacation on the way from Atascadero to Carmel via the Carmel Valley Road. It's a very clean restaurant, on a main street, easy to find (we used GPS). I had a shrimp crispy taco and Kathy had a salad, both were great. Very reasonable prices and very friendly and helpful service, would... More

My wife and I often drive from the San Francisco Bay area down to southern California along Highway 101, and we like to try different places for a lunch stop. We recently tried the El Michoacano Restaurant in Greenfield, and liked it. We can't call ourselves experts on Mexican food, but we each enjoyed the carnitas burrito lunch--we had more... More

El Michoacano is like my favorite restaurant in Zihautanejo. Cheerful murals painted on the walls, friendly staff, large selection of cold Mexican beer....and some of the most tasty SHRIMP TACOS I've ever had. (At a $1.75 each order a few if your really hungry) We also ordered a shrimp tostada which came so loaded down with shrimp it resembled an... More

The food is excellent, and they do large portions. They have wonderful Carne asada and carnitas... The only problem is that there is usually loud music from the jukebox...
