El Favorito has several outlets, the most popular of which is in Santa Rosa. The Sebastopol branch is just off main street a block south of the Sebastopol Arts Center. It doesn't look like much inside or outside, but the food is consistently good and filling--our Mexican friends from Michoacan and Oaxaca all go to El Favorito for lunch and... More

Came across this place after we parked in the public lot behind it. We went walking around Sebastopol and were leaving to go back to Guerneville ,when we decided to have dinner there .Fantastic steak quesadilla and chicken flautas. Friendly and authentic !! Great pico de gallo from the salsa bar too!

Good food at a very good price. Friendly service even when the customers are not being very friendly. The only draw back is that the restaurant is a bit dated and almost dirty looking. Very authentic with super hot sauces. Worth your time and worth your money.

I'm a regular here. Like other refugees from SF, I also was looking for a mission-type burrito place and after trying the other 5 Mexican food restaurants around town, this is the winner. Nice selection of meats, including el pastor which I like. They do well with my customized order which usually leaves out the rice and adds jalepenos. I... More

All the El Favoritos are wondeful - they have the best pico de gayo and they know how to do chicken right! The super Veggie burritos are also a fave and the fresh made agua frescas are outstanding. All of this with a great price point makes this stop a staple in Sebastopol's eateries.

This is a pretty large place right on the main north/south street in Sebastopol. The usual taqueria offerings, but some delicious ceviche specials and soups. Very good food for a very reasonable price - lots of space for the kids to run around and nobody will mind. Cheap, casual dining: highly recommended!!

Yes, this place is simple. You order at the counter and they bring your food to the table. Silverware is plastic. However, service is friendly, food is good, and there are many, many choices. I had the milanesa with which I was happy. It was not the type of milanesa you get at an Italian or Argentinean place (a flat... More

No you will not get table cloths, china, and silverware, but you will get very tasty Mexican dishes served by people who know how to cook their food. Do not expect atmosphere, just expect to get very good Mexican food.

On the recommendation of a friend we went to the Taqueria El Favorito and weren't disappointed. The food is very authentic Mexican and very good. The prices are very cheap. The décor is not great and the location is a bit tacky. All in all - we'll be back when in the area.

I like to eat burritos, eating half at the resturant, and taking the balance home for another meal. I ordered the grilled chicken, and ate my half which was tasty, and took the left overs home. About an hour later, I experienced terrible heart burn which I haven't had in years! Possibly due to cooking meat in too much grease?... More
