“Best Mexican Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2005

One of the best restaurants in Hollister and easily the best Mexican restaurant. It's been run by the Zuniga family since 1939. I've eaten there many times and I always think that it must be grandma's recipes, it has those home cooked flavors. Very reasonable prices and great service. For a treat try some of their famous tamales or a combination plate.

Google El Progresso Hollister for the story and history of this great restaurant.
