This used to be a good place for standard Tex-Mex food but they have added new menu items that are more creative and interesting and really good. I had a burrito with carnitas covered with mole sauce and it was fantastic.

Seems as though nothing is authentic about the fare, instead, generic mass production food items that taste thawed and heated, borrowing the chips. Conditions of dining room was clean, applicable decor, and staff. Nothing special.

Nothing fancy here but if you're looking for a good taco, burrito, and enchilada, you can find it at San Felipe. I don't recommend the Steak Fajitas because the meat is generally a bit tough, but all the rest of the menu is generally good. I especially recommend the Pollo loco, Arroz Con Pollo, and the Pollo Tropical.
