“Unexpected Sensational Mexican”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

We were overnighting in Clovis in order to drop our son off at camp. Our dining expectations were pretty low. The front desk recommended Bobby Salazar's, a short drive from our hotel.

We're from LA so we have access to some pretty good Mexican food. Again we were not expecting a lot here in Clovis. The freshly made guacamole was sensational (chips not as good). The margaritas among the best I've had. My special burrito and my wife's fajitas were outstanding as was my son's dish. The churro dessert was also great. The portions were enormous. We loved it! Wish there was one in LA. A truly unexpected surprise.

“best hamburger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Sounds weird to order a hamburger in a Mexican restaurant.....but this ranks as my number 2 best burger ever. Juicy, cooked just right and did I mention the fresh guacamole and bacon. The fries were hot and fresh. Went twice during our stay in the area. Dinner was also good. Staff was great. Busy place....handled the crowds very well. Again this was during graduation weekend. Will definitely eat here again when we are in the area.

“Definitely a Good Choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

Even though it was Friday night rodeo and the place was packed, we only waited about 10 minutes. The service was excellent and the food was delicious!

“The best mexican food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Since the original in 1980...Still and always our favorite! Great service! Excellent food...and we like to try any new mexican restaurant. Short rib burrito and Fancy burrito are always a hit. Try the rico tacos or the shredded beef tacos. MMMMM good! Great margaritas too!

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013 via mobile

Talked my husband into trying this restaurant instead of the one we normally go to when in Clovis. Service was great with very pleasant staff. Chips and salsa very good. However, the flour tortilla nachos were overcooked with very little flavor and his enchilada/taco combo was average. We won't return.
