I have been coming here ( Santa Clara location) since 80's and never being disappointed. I love the architecture of this restaurant. The food and service is awesome. Price is very reasonable. Try their Sunday brunch. You will not be disappointed.

The restaurant is huge! Right off the highway with lots of parking. It looked like the restaurant could accommodate large parties easily and at noon we could still hear ourselves talk. It was good for a business lunch. The restaurant opens at 11a not 4p as it said on this site. The menu is large and they have lunch specials... More

Very good Mexican food, was really impressed by this great restaurant especially the building is very nice to see for Europeans. The staff is friendly and helpful and you can choose from a broad selection of national and international beers.

Dinner started well with good chips/salsa and Margaritas. My son ordered the Carnitas and I the fish. Terrible! even the rice was sub par: watery and no taste. How do you screw up rice in a Mexican restaurant? Fish was overcooked and just not good. My hubby had the fajitas which he said were ok, but not extraordinary. Carnitas was... More

This was one of the few restaurants within walking distance from the Marriott, where we were staying. I saw on Yelp that it got good reviews and as my daughter and I both enjoy Mexican food, I figured it was with trying. The restaurant itself was lovely. The architecture was very authentic, looking like a hacienda. Inside the restaurant was... More

This was a great place to come. Very busy at lunch, which tells you people like it if they will eat here during a short lunch. Good service. Great Burrito!

Strongly recommend Pedro's to enjoy an intimate meal or drinks. The location is near the highway but not at all noisy, and the structure has the curved doorways and stucco finish that makes it special. Food can be ordered in a variety of preparedness and with special request mostly honored. The drinks surely are an Uber event to ensure safe... More

This is a good place to eat some standard tex-Mex food. We had guacamole, and some of their specialties. I wouldn't say I was blown away by the flavors or style, but it was decent quality food. The prices were in the teens to $20 range, so they weren't overcharging for it. All in all an okay experience
