I think there are new owners to go with the new name. Esteban's was wonderful and so is Real Tequila. The service is quick and very friendly. The food is prepared quickly and is EXCELLENT. I am not a judge of what is real "mexican"...More

If you've been spoiled by really good mexican food, you'll be disappointed here but if you haven't, you'll probably like it just fine. It's very typical Tex-Mex style with hot plates, lots of cheese and unimaginative sauces but it's a great place to take your...More

Everything here was good. I judge a Mexican restaurant by it's homemade tamales and these were excellent! Good place to bring the grandchildren too.

I liked it. I sat at the 4 seat bar then took a table. The place was packed by 5:30pm on a Friday. Clientele covered everything from lots of kids to older couples. Some areas had TV, some didn't. Bathrooms were clean. Food was plentiful,...More

We live in Anacortes so we get to eat at Esteban's a lot. We are in a rut, usually order tacos (ask for all white meat chicken) and enchiladas. But we often go with friends. Last night friends ordered carne asada and beef fajitas. Everything...More
