Our family was directed here by a friend from her own positive experience. It has the reputation of being a long standing authentic family restaurant and yes they delivered! The food light and flavorful. The staff very welcoming and hospitable.

This is one of our son's favorite restaurants, so we had to try it out with him. It's a small place but has a good menu selection. The food was hot, fresh and pretty good. You have to try it at least once!

Estrada's is not just a restaurant serving great food, it is a tradition. It is an experience to go and it feels like the family has just invited you over for dinner. You can see into the kitchen and watch how the food is made....More

If you like food that is salty, greasy, and overpriced this is the place for you. Some of the worst Mexican food I've eaten. I cook and I make Mexican fairly often. I expect freshness, blends of typical Mexican spices like cumin, cilantro, roasted peppers...More
