Great place to sit and have a good meal. They have fun seating in the back. Lots of food and drinks selection. They have a pretty full menu with lots of items to choose from. It is a good place to meet for dinner or lunch. We have enjoyed eating there several times.

We like seating outside on their patio and enjoying lunch here. the wait sometimes can be long and you have to wait in front of other people's tables when they are almost done to get the seats! The food is good. I like their breakfast egg dishes. The strawberry drink is tasty but the watermelon one is not as great. The servers are nice.

When you can't be bothered with the hideous line outside the Los Gatos Cafe for breakfast on the weekend, Andale is a low key alternative (although they don't open until 9 a.m.). Try the Machaca Nortena breakfast plate or breakfast burrito. Quite delicious.

Pros: Solid weekend breakfast choice if you want something a little different

Cons: Service is a little slow

I have been to both the little Andale's and the larger one across N. Santa Cruz Ave. many times over the years. They're usually quick, with good, simple meals. Although the food isn't spectacular, I always returned for my burrio fix. Three weeks ago I ordered the Maya(n) Chicken Burrito which also has a little salad on the side. My husband had a shrimp burrito which he liked a lot. However, later that evening (and through the night, into the next day...) I experienced a terrible "food borne illness" as the County and my doctor called it. I washed my hands before I ate (but still didn't use my fingers to eat this), so nothing came from me. I am very clear this is the source - there is zero doubt in my mind about this. This messed up my digestive system for days. I want to add that my husband felt great - but he also did not eat anything from my plate. I realize these things *can* happen, even in wonderful fine dining restaurants. Something can be off - perhaps there was something in the salad greens and they weren't washed well, maybe something in the meat, or a worker's hands weren't clean (ew), but I felt the need to inform others. I did not give them the lowest rating 'cause of past positive experiences, AND, I may even return in a year or so when I'm no longer afraid to eat there. Meanwhile, they need to review sanitation and food preparation procedures with their staff.

On another note, I'm leary of bathrooms in restaurants with black toilets and dark walls with somewhat dim lighting. Are they trying to hide something? And, I entered the restroom right after an employee left it only to find several paper towels on the floor. I'm assuming he didn't make the mess, but I would expect an employee to pick up a mess if he sees it.

I've eaten there many times for lunch because I was in the area at the time and felt like eating a light mexican style meal. No complaints about the food then.
However once is enough for breakfast. They had the sorryiest excuse for chicquillas I have ever had. They were absolutely the worst.
Would go back for lunch but never for breakfast.

Andalaes is a sure bet when you are looking for fast good Mexican food. I like eating out on their patio. They have good prices and their food is always tasty.

PROS: fast, cheap

The new breakfast menu is definitely worth a try, but it's only available on the weekends. I recommend the chicken tostada. Andale has a really charming atmosphere and feels authentic.

Roasted Chicken Salad with Goat cheese is great. There is limited seating in patio area but if you are lucky enough to secure a seat the ambience is like being in a cantina in Puerto Villarta!
