Not a lot of atmosphere but the meats are really good. The prices are reasonable and the folks here are friendly.

This past June, having found the classic Healdsburg Tuesday music in the park, I needed some food to tide me over, having been doing wine tastings all day. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and flavor of the dinner platter of Enchiladas I was presented. The salsa and chips along with the guacamole were also excellent. All in all,... More

Great place for lunch tucked in a strip mall a couple blocks from the plaza. Terrific tacos al pastor and ice cold beer - what more do you need? Maybe a slab of their luscious flan. The seafood cocktails also seem popular and probably worth a return trip.

I like their garden and veggie burritos. Salsas are super good: red and green salsas. Carne asada and fish tacos are tasty. Fish is not fried the way they prepare fish tacos at El Sombrero.

Super disappointed with the service. Food was okay, but definitely not worth going back. And it's a shame because we live so close to it. The server wasn't even friendly and acted like we were bothering her. She never brought us half the things we aske her for repeaatedly.

El Taco Grande is not an atmospheric gem, but the food is consistently good, and reasonably priced. We ususally do take-out, and haven't been disappointed yet.

Healdsburg has many semi-gourmet restaurants serving what some might call "yuppie chow," for its appeal to well-healed tourists. We wanted a casual, moderately priced but tasty meal before heading to a wedding's wine and desert reception, and El Taco Grande was just what we hoped for. The food was very good, fresh, and the waitstaff were welcoming and friendly. The... More

Two years ago, I deemed this, of all Healdsburg's Mexican restaurants, the "best in town." Now...I'm not so sure. I've not had a bad experience (my wife and I eat here 6-8 times a year), but now it's just average. I guess it's time for me to make the circuit again and re-evaluate the others to see which is the... More

If visiting Healdsburg I would not recommend this as a place to eat for Mexican food. Across the street is a small market with a dining area in the back tucked away behind boxes piled high... THIS is where I'd go for take out and then sit in the park. (It would help to know a little spanish before walking... More
