“Nothing Special, considering the competition in the vicinity”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

La Cumbre has been around for years, with a very loyal clientele. But in an area with a multitude of latin restaurants, it needs to keep up. Old and/or broken chairs and tables does not necessarily give a place 'ambiance'. Portion are getting smaller and taste starting to miss the mark. Old customers need to make a few remarks!

Heard about this place from a show on the travel channel and it lived up to the hype. Huge burritos with very fresh ingredients! Carne asada was amazing!

“Hokey Commercial, good food”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

If I just watched their TV commercial I'd avoid them, but they are a good taqueria in a prime spot in San Mateo. There is plenty of parking, they are near the train station, and booths are big and clean. I like that I can see the grill guy making my carne asada.

Typical taqueria food at good prices.

“One of the best taqueria”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

La Cumbre is located in front of San Mateo CalTrain station, and has their own parking lots. Decent variety of Mexican menu and their super burrito is the most frequently selling because of its gigantic size, good ingredients and very reasonable price.
When you place an order, don't miss the tortilla chips. Sales persons sometimes forget to ask customer saying "Do you want chips?" and several salsas / condiments are hiding in the deepest area of the restaurant. Try their salsa verde if you like cilantro.
