“Food and service”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

The service was slow, did not keep drinks and chips filled. I had the chimichanga, and it was dry, not very good.

Reviewed 13 March 2012

I had heard all about this place - I was really unimpressed. Very mediocre mexican food.

“Excellent for N. Calif standards”
Reviewed 11 October 2011

My idea of good Mexican food is fresh food at a reasonable price. Emma's fits that criteria. The Margs are excellent. The local favorite is the Senator Jack Schader special with shredded beef. In reading some of the other reviews, Emma's is being compared to mom's home cooking with a few of the negative reviews. This is not fair. Compare it to other local Mexican places in the area. I just came back from San Diego and had some tremendous Mexican food, with freshly made hot corn tortillas, etc. Emma's is not that good, but if you are in N. Calif and compare this place to other N. Calif venues, it is an easy 4 star.

“a family tradition”
Reviewed 19 February 2011

Of course the soup and salad are a given. Everything else is good standard taqueria food. Nothing very unusual or gourmet. A real fun place!
