I was in town on business (not my first time in Danville). There are some pretty good Mexican restaurants in town, and I saw that this one had higher ratings...I decided to try it. It wasn't bad by any means, but my food surely wasn't worth the ratings that were being posted. On a positive note, the location/atmosphere and service... More

Visited on a recommendation of a co-worker and the service and food did not disappoint. Had Chori Pollo , which was simply wonderful !! I believe Carolina was my server and was attentive and friendly! Would definitely return on my next visit to Danville.

I enjoyed my meal that I received as a take out. The tamales were excellent! Nothing to complain about.

Of the three "main" Mexican restaurants in Danville, it is probably the best. Very good food and service.

San Marcos is one of the big two Mexican Restaurants in Danville. It is home to the best mole sauce and the biggest Day of the Dead display. The food is good as is the service. The seating is a little limited so you may have to wait. While my wife and I really like San Marcos, the kiddos refuse... More

Best I have found in Danville. Service was very good. They got most of the correct plates in front of our crowd of 11 on the first try. Rita's were average to good made from a mix I'm sure. I had a chicken chorizo dish that was very nice. The sides were flavorful...that was surprising compared to everywhere else I... More

The food was good and the service an 'A+.' I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes Mexican because they have a broad menu satisfying practically anyone. The helpings were enormous.

This is a great local spot with excellent mexican food. The interior is a little kitschy, but fun. Been here a few times now and the service is always good and our meals are always excellent. Love the salsa, love the guac, and love the tacos.
