The food is delicious at Sunset Cafe! I have been many times and every meal is fantastic! The staff is friendly, a great place to go. I also recommend the Sunset Margarita, it is by far the best margarita I have ever had.

The food was good but the service was extremely slow. We ate here midweek, not many full tables and a table that was seated after us was served their food before us. We were disappointed with the service and most likely will not return.

Oh, Sunset...you have the best margaritas around, and I love your quesadillas, chipotle meatloaf, and cajun pasta, which make you one of my main-stay places. But a couple of simple things would make you so much better - the salsa was so disappointing last time...More

One of the best margaritas - the Sunset margarita! Just make sure you hand over your car keys. The selection of quesadillas is great, and the nacho appetizer is huge. Bring your appetite!!!

This is a very eclectic place. The menu is very broad; but the taste combinations are so amazing with all kinds of spices and mixtures! We had sausage meatloaf with garlic potatoes! Wow what a warm fuzzy for the pallet!

Ok, so I'm a fairly regular diner at Sunset Cafe; it has ups and downs, but I love the homey atmosphere and amazing margaritas and quesadillas will keep me coming back. Dining in Ballston Spa is the great antidote for over-hyped Saratoga Springs, and Sunset...More

My sister in law picked the Sunset cafe for a dinner out recently and we all enjoyed quality quesadillas, sandwiches, and margaritas. Definitely a worthy lunch/dinner spot if you are in the area.
