Just a short walk from SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, this Mexican restaurant has good chips and salsa along with a variety of meal options. It's a great location especially for those working at SLAC to grab a meal quickly.

We ate here 4 times over a week. They have giant, fabulous breakfast burritos and very large, yummy dinners and margaritas. Reasonably priced especially for the area. Definitely look forward to going back. Also like the decor and windows that open on the courtyard.

I visit Stanford monthly and had decided it was time to try a new restaurant nearby. This place was convenient and the staff friendly. However, the chips seemed stale and my chicken chimi was so bad that I only ate a few bites, yet I...More

Staff is very friendly and service is prompt. Prices are reasonable, especially for Menlo Park. However, the food is not very authentic at all; very bland; everything tastes the same. Salsa tastes like it comes out of a jar.
