“Cozy atmosphere, good food”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

Castillo's is on a little side street in Mariposa. Not a big place, but an obvious favorite for the locals. Pretty standard menu, but the food was good and the servings generous. Beer could have been a little colder.....

“Mexican Dishes with Great Flavors”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Very pleasing find, a bit off the main highway., Lucky I found this little place, one of the few great Finds in Mariposa, The Chile Verde was so fresh and tasty, the rice cooked perfect. My husband's steak al Chicana New York was cooked perfect, tender and tasty, came will a tostada salad that was fresh and tasty. Salsa, was one of the best I have had. Service was friendly and fast, even with how crowded it was. We sat out in the patio,with a beautiful flower garden, great atmosphere, just loved it. Prices are reasonableand large portions. Definitely has fresh cooked meals with excellent flavor, Great overall experience. Just recently moved here, this is one of my favorite places for great food that is so fresh. Yum

“Excellent meal!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Wow! We eat a lot of Mexican food (being from Arizona) and were super impressed with Castillo's. The salsa was fresh with great ingredients. My chicken chimichanga was one of the best I've ever had. My husband had shredded beef tacos and said they were amazing too. We asked if they would ever consider moving back home with us.

Mmm...wish we could come back every week!!!

“Very good, typical Mexican restaurant”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

My family and I came on our first evening in Mariposa. We had read a few negative reviews, but didn't think that they were warranted at all. Between us, we had chips and salsa, beef tacos, a bean burrito, tamales, and chile rellenos. They were all very good. We go to Mexican places frequently at home, so I think we have a pretty discerning palate for Mexican food. Even though the restaurant was crowded, we were served INCREDIBLY quickly, by a very friendly waitress. The only thing I wished they had is more than one margarita option. Still, recommended!

This poor excuse for a Mexican restaurant should be avoided at all costs. The food is poor. The service is worse. There is zero communication between the people running the place and the people waiting for a table. They have no concept of how long it will take to get a table and refuse to tell you. The whole restaurant is run down. Stay away
