I love everything I have tried. Their salsa is good too.

So this was our favorite restaurant on Balboa Island, but they are no longer there. The food was excellent, the family became island family. But this new location is awful. It is ONLY takeout or delivery, a shared kitchen concept that simply won't work. I won't be back until they can find a location that is more reasonable and allows sit down dining. Very sad.

I love the carne asada torta but their mild salsa is my dad's favorite in the whole world. We got a whole pint, lol. Sad to see them not on Balboa Island anymore but we ordered delivery and it even came early!

These guys are awesome and take such good care of you! We work across the street and often come eat here because of the service and the food is AMAZING.

Amazing food for great prices. Everything we have had tastes delicious and you can tell ingredients are high quality and fresh.

Stale bland soggy Milanese sandwich no flavor. Definitely not worth the price. Porto's has better Milanese sandwich. This is definitely not made for people who have had real Mexican food. Ordered the machaca burrito at least the burrito is fresh and doesn't taste stale but has a lot of water in it. The beef no flavor they give you fresh salsa but the chips were stale too. Had to just throw out half the order. Definitely not worth going back unless you want to get possible food poisoning.

This was my first time ordering, I called 30 minutes to closing and they were super nice to taking my order and providing me with directions to the restaurant. I ordered Combination plate#3. I chose two crispy chicken tacos and one mole chicken enchilada, it also came with chips, salsa, rice and beans. The tacos were crunchy and full of chicken. The mole enchilada was good. The rice and beans tasted better when I added the salsa. The salsa() and chips were yummy! I'd try this place again. My only suggestion is to flavor up that chicken!

One of my absolute favorite mexican restaurants! Always the most tasty food served piping hot (great for picking up on the way to work or getting as delivery - it will be HOT!) at reasonable prices. The staff is always so kind when I call in to order and has no problem making small changes to my order. They also have my favorite salsa around! Give them a try and be surprised at how good it is!

The ordering process was easy through the Yelp App and my food had about a 45 minute estimated wait time. I showed up to wait and my food was ready 20 minutes early. Overall it's a cool concept with many different foods in one place. The location was a bit difficult to find because my GPS kept routing me to warehouses, but ultimately found it!

Was so glad to find Picante Martins following their departure from Balboa Island. My lunch today was as good as ever. Had the crispy chicken taco and the green cheese enchiladas. They still have the full menu they had in the island. Will definitely be back soon. The same lovely family is cooking and serving the food. This shared kitchen in Irvine has a very nice outdoor seating area. Actually many more places to sit than on the island.

Excellent food & amazing service. Postmates kept pushing back our order and after they picked up our food, they canceled our order altogether. The restaurant was overly accommodating and even apologized (even though it was not their fault). We walked down to the restaurant the next day and it was worth it.

YUMMY! I Work in a neighboring building and I'll definitely be back for more! Very fast, very fresh, and very tasty

My absolute favorite place to get Mexican! Sauces are delicious! Quick customer service! Only thing is last time the fries in the burrito were not cooked all the way.

Crispy tacos you're absolutely delicious! My only gripe is that I didn't order more, they are very small in size. I figured by the price that they would be larger, so I only ordered a few. Service was great, I suggest calling your order in to avoid a wait. Packaged ideally to go and extremely friendly, highly recommend it!
