The staff is really, really nice. The warm bean dip and the carne asada burrito were my favorite choices tonight. I ordered a chicken enchilada and a crispy beef taco. My food did not come out hot, unfortunately. Overall I thought the food was bland, and even the spiciest item on the menu (steak picado) was just very spicy, not... More

This place is in a very nice location, the Livery shopping center... The servers are nice. The food is really bad, no taste at all. The chips and salsa were O.K. The margaritas were so so... It has a nice bar and big t.v. screens which is nice to watch games, etc.. but they should improve the food and menu!

I think the restaurant looks very pretty, when you drive up at night. I lived in Danville, when that area was nothing but a beautiful field of yellow mustard and walnut trees. There was no 680 freeway, so it's nice to see this shopping center, is not too strip mall oriented. Nice ambiance once your inside, I've never had an... More

I have eaten here several times. But the last one I was served a watered down marguerite and haven't been back. The owners opened up an other place not far away and I tried it. Iwon't be going back there either.

If anything this might be an average place for a Margarita but the food is as bland as you can get it and grossly overpriced. We have lived in Danville for 11 years and enjoy Los Ponchos more, however lets admit it, Danville is not a place for good Mexican food period.

Large menu, full bar, festive events scheduled through out the year, in and outdoor dining. Wish they made a decent House margarita.

We visited Luna Loca bar / restaurant with two friends who live nearby and had a very enjoyable lunch. Good selection of beers and freshly cooked Mexican food served by helpful friendly staff.

Service is excellent...good attitude and prompt. We've gone in with time restrictions and they always came through. Stiff margaritas, wickedly good salsa, and my forever favorite meal here - chili rellenos. Chicken molle runs a close second with one of the richest chocolate sauces in the area. Have had dinner and lunches here...both good.

Thank Charlene M
