  • zdiva2003 reviewI loved the food and ambiance at La Golondrina. My family has been going there for many years, since I was a young girl. To sit and sip a margarita, with the mariachis playing next to us, enjoying some of our favorite, homemade style Mexican food, makes the whole experience so much richer than just going to any old Mexican diner. The food is a cut above the rest, with their handmade tortillas, flan and fresh salsas. I immediately notice the difference in the quality from the chips and salsa all the way to the desserts. We visit about once a month on weekends and enjoy their ample breakfast fare or a dish of carne asada with all the trimmings. It's good for the whole family, bring the kids and the in-laws because everyone will enjoy the visit.

  • oromcal reviewExcellent food served by friendly servers in a warm Mexican atmosphere, inside or on the patio. They'll even bring you a sample if you aren't certain. Highly recommended.
