Reviews for El Faro's Mexican Food

Ok, so after 30 years of coming here. Officially done with this place. Had burritos on Friday, food poisoning for the full family Saturday. Vomiting, diarrhea the works. Kids are still tossing and turning. My stomach feels like I'm wearing the tightest belt. My head feels like I want to bang it against a wall. 30 years you were great, last 3 years it's been hit and miss. Going to San Bruno Taqueria now!! Eating here is like Stomach roulette!!!

So I actually love this place when I get anything but the taco salad. It's a total wild card and I never know what I'm going to get. Twice I have ordered it and what they gave me was a shell filled with lettuce. Only lettuce. And two tomato slices on top. That's what 8 bucks got me. I shouldn't have to dig around the taco salad in the parking lot to make sure the rice, beans, cheese are in it. Yikes.

The food is really good! Was just a little disappointed that I ordered a carne asada and shrimp burrito today and they forgot the carne asada even though it was written on the burrito. But the burrito was still very good! Just knocked off 1 star for messing up the order. Chips salsa and horchata were very good too!
