I enjoy this restaurant. Good food, friendly service. You just have to get past the old and tired interior. It may be time for a remodel!

Lorenzo's staff is friendly. The food is good and the prices are fair. The restaurant is older but clean.

My family and I have been coming here for years. All the food is served fast and hot, it's a great place to bring the family. The chimichangas and carnitas are great, and the beer is cold!

The entryway is very deceiving as the restaurant has lots of space for dining. Ask for a booth as it is quieter. The dishes are huge. My dining partner felt the margaritas were too sweet so be aware. Our server was especially attentive. Great location for a quiet, Mexican meal.

My husband and I stop often for lunch when we have had errands in Roseville and are on our way home. It is a favorite of ours. Love their salsa and items on the lunch menu.

Have never had a bad meal or bad service here at this establishment. Don't go to the Lorenzo's on N. Sunrise...it is really bad. No comparison to the one here in Loomis! Trust me!

This was my first time here and we found the staff very friendly and helpful . The chips were a little thick for my liking but the salsa was fresh and tasty. The meals were good to very good. I had the chicken enchiladas and they were good with rice and beans. Good food though

At one time this was a great place. Have not been here for many year and wanted to try it again. You walk in and you get a unkempt feel. Looks like they do what is the cheapest to keep the doors open. Had the carnitas, the meat had some type of dry rub on it, not very good. Wife... More

Excellent taco salads both chicken and ground beef. Very friendly and attentive waiter who has excellent customer service. Plenty of seating in private or open area. Will return for quality Mexican selections.

We went here because we heard the 49ers used to hand out here. (Years ago). I found the ambiance dark and dark. Couldnt tell if floors were clean or dirty thats how dark. When the food came, it was terrible. An old place that needs to be opened up and lightened up with a new menu and chef.
