My husband and I stop often for lunch when we have had errands in Roseville and are on our way home. It is a favorite of ours. Love their salsa and items on the lunch menu.

Have never had a bad meal or bad service here at this establishment. Don't go to the Lorenzo's on N. Sunrise...it is really bad. No comparison to the one here in Loomis! Trust me!

This was my first time here and we found the staff very friendly and helpful . The chips were a little thick for my liking but the salsa was fresh and tasty. The meals were good to very good. I had the chicken enchiladas and they were good with rice and beans. Good food though

At one time this was a great place. Have not been here for many year and wanted to try it again. You walk in and you get a unkempt feel. Looks like they do what is the cheapest to keep the doors open. Had the carnitas, the meat had some type of dry rub on it, not very good. Wife... More

Excellent taco salads both chicken and ground beef. Very friendly and attentive waiter who has excellent customer service. Plenty of seating in private or open area. Will return for quality Mexican selections.

We went here because we heard the 49ers used to hand out here. (Years ago). I found the ambiance dark and dark. Couldnt tell if floors were clean or dirty thats how dark. When the food came, it was terrible. An old place that needs to be opened up and lightened up with a new menu and chef.

The food at Lorenzo's amanzaning. Depending on what you in the mood for at this restaurant you can't go wrong with any dish you order. Ask for the special of the day as well as the drink!

the service was great and the owner is really nice, but the food was only so so. Maybe I just went on a bad day but I didn't care for the food.

Great Mexican food and generous servings. Chips and salsa are excellent and take out orders are ready to be picked up when you arrive.

Lorenzo's provides quality Mexican food at a reasonable price. Their taco's, stuffed chiles and enchiladas are great. The home made beans are the best in the area, You can't beat the price or the quality
