But when we get home, La Terraza is one of our first stops. My wife loves the cheese enchiladas, the chili reliable and the chili/cheese tamales. I have... More

Delicious food, good service. The Chile Verde wet burrito is my favorite, excellent tacos as well. I don't like that they charge for chips & salsa but I'll be back.

Now this food is much hardier and does not depend on sauces and cheese. This is the "meat and potato" version of Mexican food here. Good food! Now here you'll find inside and outside seating, picnic style-yes with those hard seats, but it's cool. (it used to be an old Taco Bell)

Great place to stop in for lunch or dinner. My fav is chile relleno burrito. They stay open late, and I like to call ahead and order dinner to take home.

At first glance when you enter you see that you order at the counter then find a seat. It's not a sit down take your order restaurant. But definitely give it a try. Not only are the prices reasonable, but the portions are huge and hot off the stove. All made to order not precooked. I had the combo plate... More

Don't be distracted by the faded entree photos at the order window: the food at La Terraza Restaurant is delicious, fresh, well-prepared and a good value. We got in line, placed our order and took a table on the patio outside. A waitress brought us homemade salsa and chips while we waited for our order, which arrived quickly. The fish... More

The title of the review says it all. The food is homestyle and very inexpensive. There any many choices in Santa Paula but this place has been around for a long time, is always clean and has delicious food.

There are many, many Mexican Restaurants in town, but this one stands out because of great home style food with consistent quality.
