My go to place for a mexican lunch, very tasty generous portions. I love the fresh chips and salsa bar and aqua frescas. A popular place with the local workers, very busy on Fridays. You can order ahead if you are short on time. Enjoy!!!

Very tasty. Casual atmosphere. Seems quite popular. The corn tortilla quesadilla with meat was excellent, also the chile relleno. You order up front, then they bring the food to your table

Just about, one of the best in the area. It is just off US-101 S (Harbor exit) and then, right back on again, for those driving south. Food is terrific, priced right and good portions.

Their quality has remained the same over many years. Metates has a large following and the lines during lunch can be long, but the orders are brought to your table quickly. Everything is tasty and worth trying.
