Comment: This restaurant is BY FAR our favorite for Mexican food! It’s a great “hole in the wall” place that my husband I just adore. We have brought lots of friends who have also claimed it as their favorite. The service is great….amazing food, great homemade chips and salsa….and the prices are fantastic! We will go and get margaritas ,and big combo plates and our bill will be less than $20….you cant beat that!! I would HIGHLY suggest this place! There is usually a wait, but I would wait MUCH longer for the food here.

Comment: I have been enjoying your wonderful food for over twenty years now. I have since gotten married and moved from Yorba Linda to Lakewood, CA but still make regular trips to visit your restaurant. Trust me it is worth the drive. My family is hooked and we all just can't find anything that compares to your quality and flavor. You are the best and we thank you for all your hard work and dedication to excellence. See you again VERY SOON!

Comment: I came here on a friends request. She said it was the best restaurant ever and goes all the time. I am a huge fan of Mexican cuisine and love trying new places. Well, this one is right up there on my top favorite mexican restaurants!! And I especially loved reading the family's story about the restaurant. This place is truly a blessing and explains why the food is so great. When you have a family that devoted to keeping a business running the food has to be amazing! :)

All of my friends have eaten here at least once with me. Anytime we come into town from Las Vegas we stop by. And we are always welcomed with open arms and a COLD BEER.

Comment: I used to be editor of The Placentia Courier (a weekly newspaper) the very first year that you started. Our offices were just around the corner and I ate at your restaurant often. I'm so glad to see you're still there after all these years. I remember writing an editorial, and other stories on your behalf, when the city didn't want to let you expand.

Comment: My boyfriend and I come here A LOT. One day, our waiter Joel was helping us through our dinner. Anyways, when we received our food, we were enjoying it. But then, my boyfriend bit into something hard. Turns out, it was a rock. A rock! Almost breaking his tooth. When we pointed this out to Joel, he just took the plate and the rock. Showed it to others and came back and says that will happen. Ummm...what?! My boyfriend doesn't seem to mind it. Because the food is very good. But Joel, never came back! He was very unprofessional. We were waiting for a check. Ever since, I try not to have Joel to wait on us. I don't like how he handle oursitsituation.

Comment: We eat at El Farolito every time we are in the Placentia area; it is our favorite Mexican restaurant, even though we have several others near our home in Michigan! The service is greaat, the servings are more than ample, and the selections are abundant. In addition, the food is fresh and tasty, not like it comes out of a can as in many other places.

Comment: My family and I have been going here for years. It first began with my grandfather coming here in the 80s for business lunches, and then he passed on the goodness of this restaurant from generation to generation. We ALWAYS love the food here, and the prices are very decent for the amount you get. Always take the opportunity to come here whenever I'm in town. Thanks, El Farolito!

Comment: This restaurant was so amazing. The service was great and the food was amazing. The nachos were so delicious and the amount that they give you a so big that you can share among friends. The whole staff was very friendly and very helpful. The best part was there was a host. He was so attractive his hair was light red and his skin color was really light but the best part where his eyes because they were beautiful hazel color. I've never seen such a beautiful man in my life. I'm definitely going back to this place for the food and the man.

Comment: disgusted!! I found a Hair on my food!! that made me vomit. I ask the waitress to speak to the manager, then, she told that "She, the manager was very busy," I told her that I wait, waited for sometime then, the waitress comeback to tell me that "Irene," the manager still very busy, then latter on a "male" came and introduced himself as the manager, he did not had a nametag or anything indicated that he was the manager. Anyway , the point that I try to make here is that whomever handles the food is not doing a good job. I do not think I ever eat on this place again.
