This is by far the best Mexican food restaurant in the entire area, if not the state. The green chile is the best I have had. Unlike most places, it has TONS of pork in it. The patio is such a great place to spend a summer afternoon/evening watching the sun set over the mountains. Above all, we have always... More

Rude, service is horrible. Used to be a great place to eat but they have forgot their mission in providing good customer service. I hope they pull it together because this place will continue to go downhill.

There was eight of us for lunch. The waitress and server were personable and helpful. Friendly and had a beautiful smile. The food was great but could have been served a big warmer, but with that many to serve at once some of it will cool for sure.

We went back to La Estrellita again last night. Wonderful! We usually eat the enchiladas because they are the best ever! The chicken enchiladas don't have any weird sauces in them, just nice & juicy shredded chicken. This chicken is a great side for toddlers too. Plates were nice & hot, just how we like it. And, of course, the... More

I have been here a few times, have no complaints about the food at all; I really like that they serve black beans. The desert nachos are really good (enough to feed a large group) but I was not impressed with the margaritas...it tasted like they used Sprite or another lemon-lime soda as a large part of the mix. It... More

We go here almost weekly. My family loves eating their food. Their green chili is delicious and the rest of their food is homemade and wonderful.

I love this place. Always go back. They have great, but small Buffett. Nice cold drinks. Price very reasonable. During the warmer weather sit on the back patio. Staff are great and they go out of their way to give you a pleasurable stay. They also sell jarred salsa and such, I love the vegetarian green chili. Defiantly recommend.

We go here every Sunday with my in-laws. They have a wonderful Buffet on Sunday mornings for around $10. Regular menu is food as well. There is a good patio for warmer days too.
