Baldos place is refreshing, in an area that is overwhelmed with bad Mexican food restaurants. These people are native Mexicans, and the whole family is involved. These Mexican people work hard to prepare really fresh food! I won't eat anywhere else!

This area boasts a large number of Mexican restaurants, we choose different ones, for different meals, specialties, atmosphere, etc. We recently enjoyed breakfast here, and it was really tasty! The service was friendly, prices are great, a bit of a "fast food" environment, but nothing rushed about the atmosphere. We have enjoyed lunch here as well, including the buffet. Fresh,... More

Stopped by just because it was convenient to the road. We had the lunch buffet and the food was excellent. Authentic Mexican. Service was also great. I made tacos and had enchiladas. My husband had burrito and made tacos and salad. Both of us had rice and retried beans.

We waited quite a while to place our order and to receive our meals. Food was good and fresh - the taco salad ordered looked nothing like a taco salad but was OK.

Ordered chili relleno, because what chile relleno ever has meat in it?? I'm a vegetarian and almost choked on the chicken in the sauce. Yuch.

This is a must to stop when in the area. Got to eat here 3 times in about 10 days this trip and it is still great. Large selection of Mexican food along with American food. The fried chicken is really good too. There aren't many Mexican food restaurants that in my opinion that make a good chili relleno and... More

I have eaten at Baldos several time in the last few years - the last weekend was another attempt to enjoy one of the few Mexican restaurants in Monte Vista. It was again disappointing. They have a buffet which has some salad items, a huge bowl of refried beans that does not look fresh, some taco meat which also doesn't... More

Clean, Family owned and ran( dad was cooking, mom was preparing food and daughter waited on us), great service and great food. Rarely do you find a restaurant that is clean after a couple of years open but... More

Only restaurant in town we eat at with any regularity. Consistently good, and they are happy to accommodate special requests, specific preferences, etc., just ask. Fully bilingual as well.
