I have been going here since before I was born. Food is amazing, margaritas are even better. Do yourself a favor and have one, get a driver if you want more than one.

Had a large group, several entrees were ordered. They actually forgot to deliver some to the table. We mentioned it to the server. He did nothing except still bill us for the items not provide and even calculate an automatic tip on the items. Really TERRIBLE!!!!! Don't bother going. It used to be great but suddenly took a dive when... More

We decided to stop for lunch. My friend had the chili relleno and I had a quesadilla. Very good food. My friend says it the best chili relleno ever! The staff were friendly and our orders came quickly. Nice restaurant.

They use Hornitos as their staple for Margaritas which are still famous and excellent. The food however went down over the last several years - however their Mexican Basics are good. They have two salsa, one medium and normal chopped version and then an interesting, long marinated Vinegar and dried peppers version that is smooth and somewhat addictive.

I loved that place and those people. Never forgot about it in all these years! Very little English- but the best people & food! I thought when we went it was the Sinaloa Club. Best times of our life!

Very good food that arrived fast and just as ordered, with good portions. The margaritas were very good, but pricey for the amount you received. The restaurant was clean and accommodated several large groups in the back room including ours. Our server was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Would come here again.

I've been going to Sinaloa for over 35 years. Still the best Mexican food in the South County. Good food, great Margaritas and good service.

Chile relleno is great. Real deal from scratch with light batter, lots of cheese and great sauce. Best in town so far. All the food is really good. We've taken several folks there and no complaints. Plus a great bar

We have been coming to Sinaloa, the present location as well the original Madrone place, for almost 30 years. I'm surprised by some of the reviews as I've never had a bad experience. That said, the fried tacos are simply the best that I've ever had! A taco is a taco? Not in this case. Several times a year we... More

Visited on what could only be described as a very quite afternoon. Service was very average, food was acceptable. Following our main meal we were not asked if we wanted anything else just got presented with our bill. Will go back but in no hurry to do so.

Thank Darkblueox
