Estela's deserves the poor ratings it receives. Our first turn off was that the prices were all about $1 higher than what they post on their web site. We ordered the Combo Grande Fajitas. At most Mexican restaurants, the fajita dish, especially one with the word grande in it, would feed two with leftovers. This was barely enough for the two of us. The flavor was good, but the beef was overdone and chewy (their web site recommends it be cooked medium rare, but in practice they do it well done). We ordered the flan for two, which was very, very good. But again it cost more than what they advertise on their web site menu. Service was almost non-existent; the server never smiled or seemed to care that we were giving them business. First and last visit!

Ate dinner there last week and found the food to be very processed tasting, fatty, and overdone. The meat had so much fat on it, I was shocked they served it that way. The sauces were very smothering and over done. The service was lacking

I love Mexican food but everytime i've gone to Estela's i get a bad case of heartburn. It is just too greasy. I never get heartburn except when i eat there. Do your taste buds and your tummy a favor -- drive a little further East on Hwy 60 to the
Mexican place beside of Ben's Family Rest. The food is excellent, very consistant. Salsa is wonderful. Everyone is very friendly. We go there often! Never disappointed.

If you are in the search for slow service and overprice food, search no more. The food did not impress anybody in our party.

I had heard good things about Estela's from friends so my husband, son and I wanted to try it. We went for lunch yesterday. I ordered a taco salad, it was a fried flour tortilla shell - fatty ground beef in the bottom, about a cup of iceberg lettuce on top of that and 1 tomato slice on top with a quarter cup of sour cream. That is it and they charge $9.29 for it. On top of that my son hated his enchiladas - made with the same ground beef, no seasoning wrapped in a corn tortilla and some kind of processed white cheese sauce on top. The only redeeming thing was that my husband liked the chile relleno but nothing else on the plate. To top it off it cost the 3 of us $42 for lunch, we didn't finish our food and I've spent today back and forth from the bathroom and intestinal distress. Thanks Estela's, we won't be back.

I like Mexican food! This little restaurant is a real jewel. It is in a good location for me to go after church on Sundays. They have good food with a minimum wait period. Good prices too.

This is a very small restaurant but they always seem to be packed. We go there a lot after church on Sundays and we never have to wait. They are very quick. There food is very good and very reasonable. It seems to be authentic mexican food. This is a great little restaurant.
