I work nearby and this is used to be a decent spot for reasonably priced Mexican food. The service was prompt and usually you get your food rather quickly. The quality is average and today my quesadilla was not cooked through, the cheese was not melted. They made me feel kind of bad about this. They made me feel bad... More

Santis is a wonderful departure from the mexican food we all know. There is no TexMex here. The food is fresh and the serving sizes are generous. Mama;s chicken soup is good for the soul. The Burritos are amazing.

Casual, friendly, indoor, outdoor, funky restaurant with the nicest of servers. Great margaritas, quesadillas, etc. Fantastical decor with hanging chandeliers in all colors.

We needed an affordable place to bring the whole family before going to a play. Santi's was the right choice to feed a sizable group quickly, at a reasonable price. Everyone was happy with their meals and the server was attentive.

I love this place. Pedro and the rest of the are friendly and efficient Their Camarones (shrimp) dishes are excellent as are their soups. I like their Menudo (tripe soup), but I would like more, if they included Pozole (hominy).

The salsa was sooooo good. Maybe one of the best chips and salsa I have had. My burrito was average, a little below expectations as the cheese wasn't even melted inside. But the salsa made up for it, in some ways

Love this friendly authentic Mexican food ! Happy hour is great with deep discounts on draft beer and margaritas. Love the salsa, just enough onions and spices too!
