“Good food fast, but not fancy”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

The food was fresh and the portions of moderate size (nutritiously correct for healthy eating) and the salsa, made fresh daily, was great! Prices were reasonable given the freshness of the ingredients.

The cafe needs to take more care with cleanliness however. I opted to wipe the table and chairs down for the three of us, as no-one cared to sit down. The staff were busy with food and made no attempt to wipe tables.

Three is ate tacos for $15, just H2O for drinks, so good price for a quick pit stop. Indoor and outdoor seating available.

For those with a Caribbean flare, I was excited to see they offer Tamarind Juice! Didn't try it this time, so cannot comment. Next time.... :)

“Como Esta Tacqueria is my neighborhood favorite”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

In fact, we are having Como Esta burritos for dinner tonight. I love Como Esta, both for the food and the family run owners. The owners hosted a party for 800 under-priviledged kids in East Palo Alto, providing them with gifts for the holidays and their good food. I'd come back for the food anyway, but especially so given the big heart of the owner.

Thank salmons
