I just love this place! It is in a strip mall next to Walgreens. I am from San Diego and I miss the Mexican food from home. This little place is fantastic. My favorite is the super chile relleno burrito. It's big so you can share or eat it for two days. The food is fresh and always tasty. It's... More

If you just want a quick, tasty, take-out burrito or taco in Palo Alto, head to Midtown. Hidden next to the Walgreens is Como Esta. A "Super" carnitas burrito to go is only $8.97, $9.75 with tax. They also feature sidewalk tables good for a sunny day, if a bit crowed just after school by the high school set. A... More

I have there several times and always enjoy their food and quick service. Located next to Walgreens and small strip mall it makes it easy to find and park. I feel all the food I have gotten there was well prepared and good portions. My only complaint is that they were skimpy on the cheese on their Quesadillas. Will return.

We ordered this for delivery for work lunch. The price is right. None of us had had it and it was rated highly so we took a risk. The food was amazing and I have not been able to eat such amazing food for that same price since In N Out. It is our new go to order place!! I... More

This place is busy at lunch (equals wait time of about 10 mins) as it's near some local businesses on or near Middlefield. However...if you use the Order Ahead app...you can place your order then pick it up! Pro's: consistently good food! My favorites include all things Carne asada. Burritos and tacos. Chips come w your order too. Con's: Small... More

Como Esta is a great tacqueria tucked into a Walgreen's in midtown Palo Alto. They make the best carne asada I have ever had. Ingredients are first rate, carefully butchered and trimmed and cooked to perfection. The salsas are made on premises and delicious. Seating inside and out.

The food was fresh and the portions of moderate size (nutritiously correct for healthy eating) and the salsa, made fresh daily, was great! Prices were reasonable given the freshness of the ingredients. The cafe needs to take more care with cleanliness however. I opted to wipe the table and chairs down for the three of us, as no-one cared to... More

In fact, we are having Como Esta burritos for dinner tonight. I love Como Esta, both for the food and the family run owners. The owners hosted a party for 800 under-priviledged kids in East Palo Alto, providing them with gifts for the holidays and their good food. I'd come back for the food anyway, but especially so given the... More
