We found the restaurant relatively full for a weeknight, with plenty of folks coming in to pick up takeout. Always encouraging to the see the locals like it! The parking lot is in the midst of being repaved so street parking is a little tricky but worth it. Ample chips and salsa, great guacamole too! Service was terrific with at... More

Best Mexican restaurant in Martinez, no doubt. Family owned and operated by the same family since its start, and Madre keeps a close eye on everything. Sitting in the booths in the dining room you can watch as they press out the housemade masa for fresh, hot corn tortillas with each meal. They also make their own salsa, and it... More

Food was absolutely delicious, but service was not so great. I asked 2 different waitresses for a soda refill and it took 20 minutes, not joking. When they brought our food it was dropped off and they took off, not asking if we needed anything else. No one checked on us and I was so thirsty I started eating the... More

I have been dining at La Primavera for several decades when visiting family in Martinez. So I am always comparing the current visit with ones I have had in the past. I have never been disappointed with La Primavera. Staff make it a point to treat you like family and we enjoyed a variety of items on the menu.

I ain't talking goat cheese, I'm talking goat meat. I ordered, and, sadly, they were out. Perhaps not many folks share my gastronomical adventurousness, so the the management doesn't keep a lot of goat in inventory. No matter. The Missus and I got some great dinners. As others have noted, I've driven by this place time and again, and it's... More

Well, i'm not a "foodie", so I have a really hard time reviewing restaurants. (I'm an opportunistic eater. LOL.) What I can say is that what i've had so far has been incredibly tasty. My favorites are the the tacos with lengua and birria de chivo. The food is always fresh and the service is wonderful. Satisfied Martinez "local"

I drive by this place on a daily basis and never knew it was there. Only found it because we hit up their food truck in the Ace hardware parking lot looking for Birria or Menudo. They referred us to the restaurant. Very good authentic taqueria with traditional Mexican food. Cool painted murals all over the interior. I had a... More

When we exited highway 4 to visit the John Muir site we decided to eat first. All of the food places on the street there were of the horrible fast variety so we looked online and found LA Primavera. It took a few more minutes of wandering until we found it tucked away in town. They greeted us enthusiastically. Service... More

Wow! Since we found La Primavera, we go nowhere else for Mexican! The food is superb--especially chili verde, spicy chicken soup, their rice... I'm salivating just typing it up! Their service is very good. The restaurant is pretty small, but it's worth the wait. Almost always immediate seating at the counter. (In 2 years, we have had to wait for... More
