We used to eat at the La Estrellita in Westminster when we lived down in that area so we were already familiar with their food and service. We've visited the one in Brighton now two or three times. It's sort of what you expect for Mexican restaurants in Colorado. The place is darker and has an older, sort of shabby feel but the wait staff is very friendly and the service is fast. We ate dinner there and we probably were in and out in less than 35 minutes! The food is pretty good but I have to say I sort of felt the tortilla chips we were served this last time seemed a little stale. The prices are good as well. I wouldn't say it's anything super special and definitely not fancy but it is good overall and if you leave hungry it's your own fault!

Visited La Estrellita for the first time and definitely will be going back. We knew good things would be coming based on the fresh chips and flavorful salsa that arrived soon after we were seated. Didn't even need to ask for a salsa re-fill because as soon as we were near the bottom of the bowl, another bowl appeared. The special that day of 2 chicken stuffed chile rellenos did not disappoint. Also tried the fish tacos from their healthy choice selections and that too was great. Had to sample the vodka-rita which combined mandarin vodka, triple sec and a sweet & sour mix - we're hoping it is always on the menu. For more traditionalists there is a large selection of margaritas also on the menu. Our waiter, Isaac, was attentive and made sure that we were happy with our selections.

Hostess (name?), Server Monica, and Server Isaac are perfect employees. We had the special $5.75 margarittas which were awesome. Hubby had the shrimp fajitas and I had the burrito/taco plate. Both were very tasty and were served hot. Chips and wonderful salsa came free with the meal. It doesn't get any better than this place for Mexican food. High Five to everyone at La Estrellita! Job well done.

This review really needs 6 stars, not 5. We went here for lunch and the food and the service was top notch! The Mayan Enchiladas are amazing and this will be our "go to" place for excellent mexican food from now on. Their Black Raspberry Margarita is delicious and is a must try! Our entire meal was delicious and there is not one thing I could complain about. The servers are friendly, knowledgeable and very attentive. It was the perfect dining experience, great job to La Estrellita!
