Food is good, the drinks are large snd the chips are great. The service is so-so to paltry, sometimes okay. When we have so many choices for American Mexican food, I find myself going elsewhere. The crowds also deter me. Not so great a place for which to wait .

Really enjoyed our visit to Esther's in July. I enjoy chicken flautas so decided to order and was so impressed how good they are. Nice and crispy, served with guacamole and sour cream, along with the rice and beans. Service was great and drinks were refilled promptly. Will definitely look forward to a return visit when traveling this way again!

If you like crispy tacos and chile green chile rellenos this is your place.The beans are poor and the rice fair😕 The chips are nice and salty, not from a bag,chase that with a pretty tasty salsa and your Esther's 👍🏻

My wife and I were at Esther's about twice a month. She would always get a Taco ala carte. I would order a bowl of red chili, tortillas and some times a taco as well. We would both order a beer from their extensive offering. Well suddently some prices rose and my "bowl" turned into a cup without an adjustment... More

This has been our go-to restaurant for over 18 years. Its our favorite little restaurant in Yorba Linda. Its called "Taco House" so I always stick with tacos...especially the chicken tacos. We just come in and order an #12.

Their flautas are amazing. Huge, stuffed with meat. Super cold beers. Friendly & fast! I mix the two salsas together to make it hot and amazing. I could drink it I love it so much. They have Taco Tuesday special and TV's to see games.

My family and I have been going to Ester's for years and years. The service is always top notch and friendly in a good funky way. The food is always solid, and very, very seldom is not exactly what you expected....they serve good good and do not mess with items very often. The expansion of the bar is OK, it... More
