We ended up here by default. It was in the middle of a serious heatwave and we were craving Asian food. Unfortunately, our restaurant of choice was closed as their AC wasn't working. We called and were told by the hostess at El Farolito that...More

El Farolito offers sit down service inside and out, drive through and take out. They also have a Tequilaria. The best carnitas, guacamole, and chile rellenos. Great margaritas too! I wish I could have some now!!

I had passed this place many times- and am sorry I never stopped! Great place for lunch - my vegetarian burrito was excellent, and big enough for two meals.Next time I'll have the avocado salad !

Great food and service! The fish tacos are the best! Service is good and prices are reasonable. Great outdoor area and every type of tequila on hand.

Did drive through and picked up couple burritos. I had surf and turf she had roasted veggie with chicken. Not mind blowing but decent. Probably hit a better option or two in Santa Rosa or Healdsburg next time wanting Mexican though.

I can only speak about their burritos. I usually order a grilled chicken with refried beans, cheese, avocado, and rice. It's comfort food. They have a drive through too.
