Esteban's is our favorite Mexican restaurant on the island. The service is super fast, and the food is very, very good. This is the place my kids always wanted to come to for their birthday dinners. My only complaint, and it's a tiny one, is that if they are super busy they will sometimes forget to offer you a refill... More

Eat here! The service is good and the food is delicious. They have the best chips and salsa in town, and many of their dishes are big enough to share.

Esteban's has always had the best salsa on the island, but the food wasn't always up to par. I got the Carne Asada and man was it good. The cheese enchilada was okay, but the Asada was juicy and tender.

The carne asada is exceptional. Of the other items weve tried most are very good, except the tacos. They fall apart of the plate, too much moisture. Prices are a bit high.

We ate lunch here after watching a movie next door. The service was good. We were met at the door and seated right away. The chips were warm, the salsa very good. I ordered the shredded beef burro and it was huge and very tasty. The restaurant was clean and friendly family atmosphere. We went there twice and weren't disappointed.

Very good Mexican food, we have enjoyed for years at the Anacortes location. That business has closed so we have been coming to Oak Harbor Esteban's and is just as good. Very fair prices. This is not a gourmet, fine dining experience but more of a family atmosphere and usually exactly what we want! Friendly, fast service. I always order... More

The food here is just the same menu as all the mid range Mexican restaurants in Western Washington. Why do these all insist on putting mushrooms in the shrimp dishes? This is not a Mexican thing. Anyway, it is an ordinary place with food that is not too greasy and with a wide selection of dishes. Not great, only OK
