I ate lunch here, and really enjoyed the gallo pinto. The service was great, and it was a fun people watching spot. They had amazing looking desserts in the display case and a craft beer selection.More

Stopped there for happy hour for a pjna colada (which was amazing), ended up going there 3 times, once for dinner. Fantastic and super service. Can't beat happy hour prices. Can sit inside or in back patio for even more quieter space.

The customer support that we received was excellent. Staff was able to switch between English and Spanish with ease and was very helpful in setting our plans.

The Sano Bano Restaurant is beyond delicious. Breakfast, lunch and dinner was fantastic. Their passion fruit juice was by far the best I’ve ever had! I can’t forget the staff they were great, extremely helpful and kind.
