“Great Mexican food in a small town...”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The food was good. The service wasn't stellar, but it wasn't BAD either. We found it strange they made us pay for water because of the drought. It's a nice place for a quick lunch.

“Excellent Healthy Mexican Food”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

I've eaten here 5 times and have never been disappointed. The Mexican food is classic California Mexican cuisine, and there are healthy choices on the menu. The back patio option is nice and the service was very friendly.

“Best Mexican in Cambria”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

By far, this is the best Mexican food in Cambria in terms of quality, freshness, and price. Their portions are more than generous, as are the free chips and salsa. I do have two (minor) complaints: the bar crowd and interior acoustics combine to make the restaurant awfully noisy. Outside live music on Sunday afternoons is a plus, except that management allows a handful of regulars to stake out the best seats in advance and keep them all afternoon. There ought to be a polite way to ask them to make space for others. Otherwise, Las Cambritas is definitely worth a visit.

“Basic Mexican”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

The music on the deck on Sundays is the reason we go here. Sitting on the sunny deck enjoying a margarita is a treat. Service is iffy. Food just basic.
