“Always Good, Always Fresh”

Luis Jr.'s Mexican Food
Ranked #362 of 2,169 Restaurants in Sacramento
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 August 2017

We love this place. This restaurant has been in business for over 50 years. First, it was Luis's when it was owned by the father. Then, it became Luis Jr's when the the son took over. Luis Jr was doing the cooking when his dad owned the business; so, the food is still prepared the same. And, you don't stay in the restaurant business for over 50 years without serving good food. Why we love this place so much and always make a point of eating there when we are in Sacramento is, from the salsa to the tortillas, everything is house made with fresh ingredients. Ask yourself, when was the last time you had complimentary, homemade tortillas at a Mexican restaurant. Except for Luis Jr's, I don't remember when. Their new location in Old Sacramento only adds to the experience with the ambiance of an historic location. One last thing, excellent margaritas too.

The food here was good. really liked the nachos. We had several dishes: fish tacos, chili reano, chimichunga, enchiladas. They put lots of meat in the dishes. The green salsa is better than the red.

Had lunch here recently and the food was good. Portions a little smaller than some places, but was filling. Service was good.

We had lunch here one afternoon while in Old Sacramento. The food was good, a nice size for a lunch meal. The service was very good. We had burritos, fried rice, and beans. We ordered Margaritas and went for one of the more "expensive" ones at $8.25, which was really an outstanding Margarita for this price! If you are looking for the restaurant, look down the steps at the end of the block and you will find it there.

We had an amazing dinner with friends and family at Luis Jr.'s. This was our first visit to their 'new' location in Old Sacramento. New location but same familiar flavors - yes! The Chile Colorado, as an enchilada, had tremendous flavor and the meat was very tender. The chorizo and eggs were terrific as were the chicken fajitas and beef tacos. The servers were friendly and attentive.The restaurant itself is down two short flights of stairs. Convenient parking in the garage across the street. Luis Jr.'s remains Sacramento's best Mexican restaurant!
