I had a meal with 8 colleagues at the end of a work trip. Service was attentive and food was tasty. I can recommend the chicken burrito and the margarita. Everyone enjoyed their meals and we would be happy to go back again.

We dropped in for a late lunch. For an out of towner, it was a little hard to find, but worth the effort. Parking was good and the food delicious. Friendly and efficient staff. We missed the mariachi band, they had just finished their gig, but it would have enhanced the experience. Excellent ambience.

The parking lot looked crowded, but the inside was cozy and comfortable. Good food and reasonable prices, and you can eat cheaply or not depending, on your choice.

Food was acceptable. Service was severely lacking. Even when I told manager about waiter's lack of follow up, not refilling chips, or tortillas, or water... Or even asking how my meal was. No compensation. Lost my business. Would rather choke down El Torito food then come here again.

it seems the food quality has gone down a bit since I was last there. I thought the staff was pleasant, BUT under staffed. It could of been better if they have more staff!!!

I was hooked on Pedros as of Cinco De Mayo 2016. We came in late and were served a selection of fixe menu items nachos, tacos, chimchangas along with great margaritas. Since then I try to make it to Pedros at least once everytime I am working in Santa Clara.

A business contact recommended Pedro's for a quick bite and I"m so pleased I went. The decor was refreshing and the service was great. The hardest part of our lunch was in deciding what to eat! So many great options. My colleague went with a burrito and I the enchilada. They have a lunch menu (smaller portions) which is great.... More

Fairly consistent food and service. Good setting for any kind of large gathering. The food sets heavy but taste great.

We went there twice during our stay in Santa Clara. The restaurant itself is very nice! The staff is friendly and the food is good. However, the portions are too big! One main would be enough for 2...

You cannot go wrong eating at Pedro's. Food is consistently good, staff is very friendly and attentive and there is normally never a wait to get in. Very large restaurant that can easily and comfortably accommodate large parties. Good chips and salsa too!

Thank Joni C
