Stopped for dinner on the way home from Santa Cruz. You order at the counter and wait at your table. They bring your food to you. While waiting there are unlimited chips and salsa with a really good selection of salsas. Food was plentiful and good. Not great, but definitely good. Place was family oriented and thus loud. But it... More

We ate dinner here as a couple on a getaway trip. We wanted something reasonably quick and Mexican sounded good. We enjoyed our food; one of us had the nachos and the other a burrito.

Whenever we are in Half Moon Bay, this is a MUST stop on our trip. We have yet to be disappointed. Their burritos are amazing. The service is FAST and so fresh. Always a great place for authentic Mexican food.

Not much on the highway, you have to go into downtown for other options. That is why they were busy with tourists. Food taste was bland, nothing special

Whether you eat there or get it to go for a picnic you can't go wrong. Tres Amigos has been there for years. There is a reason, it's reasonable and good. Be it a burrito or a dinner plate it will be delicious. All the salsa fixings are there to make the dish your own.

After playing golf at Half Moon Bay, this is just a mile north on the highway. Very local, inexpensive fast food setup, food is authentic mexican taco fare. Fish tacos are either tilapia or snapper. Chips and pico de gallo is tasty way to wait until food arrives! Wash it down with a cerveza, easy to see why its popular.

Great Taqueria! Friendly, fast and courteous staff. You order at the counter and the wait staff brings your food to you. Great for large groups and families too.

Tres hungry amigos stopped here and each had an awesome burrito. I had a chicken burrito which had lots of meat. Another in our party had a shrimp burrito. All left happy and filled to the gills.
