This restaurant is located inside a historic building that was once part of Henry Miller's ranch, who, apparently, was one of the largest U.S. land owners. It's a large building with an expansive dining area. They have great margaritas that do not taste like they are made with ordinary sweet/sour mix...they were quite refreshing! However, the food was not spectacular...we... More

According to my steak connoisseur boyfriend. I had a delicious chicken chimichanga and we both loved the chips and salsa. We will be back for Friday Prime Rib night!

Everything is first rate! Margaritas are wonderful. Chips and salsa fresh and crisp. My tostada compuesta was huge and delicious. They served it with the best bowl of pinto beans I've had in ages! Great atmosphere and decor! Definitely would go back!

Went here for a late lunch with a large group. The margaritas were excellent, and the venue was special--the operational base for Henry Miller, a legend in early California history. Food was great, and brought back many special memories of meals that I have enjoyed at Espanas over the past 50 years. Go here for that special meal!!

Love this place, the food is so good. They also deliver locally in Los Banos. I like to have the nacho supreme delivered. Reasonable price and really good. Comes with your choice of meat and all the fixings, choice of flour or corn tortilla chips. The menu had many choices for the discriminating Diner. Try them and you will be... More

Very historic location.  Patio has misters.  A must have on some hot days! Food and service is awesome and reasonably priced.  My favorite are the calamari taco's. Inside is formal and upscale.  Casual attire is fine. Very kid friendly.  Our server (Brandy) was on top of everything. Tip - Large Margarita is huge and very tastey.  Tip - this is... More

Nice atmosphere and excellent food. Nice place for a romantic evening or large groups even out on the patio when its not too hot. Evening is perfect. A banquet room is available for big parties. A bit pricey but worth it.

I have tried food at this place a few times. I have found the food to by a little better than some but not the greatest I have had. I feel that the menu items are over priced. The same meal at other restaurants are 3-5$ cheaper. I did not have a bad experience with any major complaints.
