My favorite Mexican food is Chili Verde and this place knocked it out of the park. Including the homemade tortillas! Compliment this with a great margarita and you have a perfect dinner. I'll go back, I plan to be a regular here.

This is a family run business and they are clearly glad to share their cuisine with their customers. They cook it and serve it promptly and hot. A popular spot with the locals - always a good sign. Patio seating in nice weather

Probably my favorite Sebastopol restaurant, Martha's is really very good. Wide range of authentic Mexican dishes, prepared as you might find them in Merida or Tijuana. Portions are generous, the quality of the ingredients is superb, and they really understand how these dishes should taste....More
