My wife and I have visited Petra several times over the past few years. While the restaurant is not in an ideal location for us, we often find ourselves going back to enjoy the fish tacos (my favorite) and other asunder dishes. The staff is friendly and the prices are reasonable. I have not noticed any drop in the quality... More

This has always been my favorite go to spot for Blood Orange Margaritas and queso..Not so anymore..My friend and I were so disappointed. We went yesterday after a tennis match ready for our blood orange margarita..It came out in a new margarita glass instead of the old glasses which is fine but it had a brown swirl instead of the...

The naysayers. I sat down to lunch today and I got the taco sampler. I got the Al Pastor, Grilled Fish Taco, and the Chicken Taco. All three were excellent with the fish taco being my favorite. The chicken was a close second. Very good. I will return!

Walk up ordering, nice and roomy, BUT the food was on in need of major help. Three of four dishes (not sure about our host's) were not very palatable; sorry, nice try.

This was my first visit here for lunch with a co-worker. This place is truly a hidden gem. The staff is supper friendly and the food is fresh and quite yummy. My friend ordered the chicken enchilada special and I got regular enchiladas. The chicken is not shredded but in cubes. They have good chips and salsa. Love the mexican... More

It was very good. I loved the queso and the chicken quesadilla was different but really good. I ordered the appitizer portion and it was more than enough for lunch.

This is our favorite local place for Mexican food. The hibiscus tea is fantastic. We love the fish tacos, vegetarian tacos, and the taco soup. Generous portions and free chips and salsa. My kids love eating here too and it's not difficult to find something that suits their palate. Friendly staff that bring food to your table after you order... More

This was our go to date night place for at least a year. The management change and alterations to the decor and recipes have not been good. Sadly we just can't support this local business any more.

I have been going to Petra for a few years. After the rebranding, a few changes happened which made the experience less enjoyable. I dont eat chicken/pork/beef so I always got shrimp tacos with two side salads since all other sides contain animal products. Now, it's $2 for a teeny salad. Good food but not many options for those who... More

Seems a lot of "food bloggers" have no clue what Petra serves. It is not tex mex, if it was they would serve Taco Bell tacos and refried beans. I come here for lunch at least once per week with a few coworkers. The managers are always quick to fix any problem, the staff has always been helpful and friendly.... More
