This restaurant has been here for years and has always sustained great food. All of the meat is seasoned well and not dry. They make there own salsa. The best.

I have eaten at this restaurant now at least fifteen times. Having grown up in California, we are spoiled as good Mexican food is easy to find; however, to find high quality exceptional food that is consistent can be a bit more challenging. Two nights ago we ate at Saritas and I had to stop, put down my fork and... More

Eat there, or take out. For as fresh and tasty as it is, the wait is very short for take-out. The place is small, and you can watch the chef preparing the food.

This place used to be good- generous portions, authentic food, and fair prices. I hadn't been here for a couple of years and wow have things changed! First of all, they no longer make fresh tortilla chips; they are clearly straight out of a bag and ours were stale. Secondly, I ordered a Chile Verde "big tostada" lunch special for... More

I decided I wanted to eat some Mexican Food. I Love Enchilladas and Spanish Rice. The Restaurant was small and somewhat over decorated but at least it was clean. Anyways the Waitress wasn't helpful or friendly and seemed somewhat put off with my Questions about Food. Honestly I think She was prejudiced because I am not Hispanic. I ordered Enchilladas...

Don't let the location fool you. Cheerful colors inside and tasty salsa. The tamales were good and the rice was flavorful. The waitress wanted to be somewhere else, but did okay.

I used to like his place before they moved to this location. The food just seems to me on the bland side. Where's the spices? Not bad overall but just boring. Some of the waitresses seem somewhat unfriendly on occasion.

For great, authentic Mexican food, cooked and served by wonderful, friendly people, Sarita's is the place to be. With three locations, we visited the one on Reservation Rd., almost out of town traveling east from Del Monte in Marina, or just as you drive into town traveling west from Blanco Rd. or Imjin Pkwy. Definitely worth the drive.

This place is the best place to get Mexican food in Marina. They have the best salsa, by far, and you can get a cerveza prepared (with salt, hot sauce, and shrimp) for $3.50. They are also the only Mexican restaurant in Marina that will actually put everything, including sour cream and guacamole, in a burrito without having to ask... More
