I've had the relleno burrito here twice, loved it both times. The food and service were both good. I'll be back!

All the usual Mexican dishes. Love the little tostada salad that comes with the dinner. The shredded chicken is tasty. They also have a lot of seafood choices

We had the chicken enchiladas. The 3 enchilada meal was plenty for my wife and I to share. Service was friendly and the food served very quickly. Would like to go back if in the area.

Great food and friendly staff here. This is traditional Mexican food and I have enjoyed every meal I've ordered here. It does get very busy, so for take out calling in the order is best.

Could not believe the quality of good food for such a small town hidden in the mountains of California! We loved the Service and the friendliness of the staff. Great and reasonably priced food. We will go back?

The Fajitas are awesome. I get the Asada and Shrimp combination. I also love the Chili Verde plate, it is tender and delicious with lots of black pepper. Get there early or expect to wait about 30 minutes for a table. The facility is old and rough and the restrooms are outside. We go there very often.

Sadly, I can't eat here. It is double sad because I am a local and we have limited dining options. Food is made with took much grease. Have tried several times to eat here, but self preservation kicked in

I wouldn't expect to find a good Mexican restaurant and a little foothill town like Prather. Well, I did. The food is pretty darn good. And the price is certainly right. I always look forward to having dinner at Velasco's, and bring my family and friends.

Thank Marcus S
