Although we have been living in Simi Valley for almost 20 years, This was only my second visit to Yolanda's Mexican Restaurant. The first time was a good experience. We were there for a company holiday party and the appetizers, chips and salsa were really good. This time we went for my son's 24th birthday and I have to say,... More

We have tried Yolanda's Mexican Restaurant several times. I lived in mexico for several years. This food had to much spice for me but for those who like it hot. Go for it.

The variety, size of portions and pricing are the greatest when it comes to this restaurant. This in addition to the salsa bar are beyond what others would expect from a Mexican restaurant.

I made it home from work just in time to enjoy their happy our on the patio, which is from 4-7pm. We enjoyed a delicious sampler plate for 1/2 off and half priced drinks that were tasty and under $5 each. Service was good and we had a great date night.

I liked the food and service. I ordered a burrito and did not realize till later that I should not have finished it. The margaritas are reasonably priced. The server was pleasant. Overall, a very good experience.

Large, airy, nice decor and good service. Lots of staff that kept moving. Typical Mexican food offerings but upper end of the price range. It was good, not great. If we lived nearby we might give it a try once in a while. The salsa and hot bean dip were really the stars of the meal. Overall, average food.

Over the years, we have eaten at Yolanda's in Ventura, Oxnard, and now Simi Valley. And this one was par for the course. The Mexican food is excellent, although a bit Americanized. Salsas are good, margaritas are excellent! Food choices are varied and everything tastes great! Prices are reasonable. Service was really good and attentive. This is definitely a staple... More

Wonderful ambiance, food, and location. Wondered about our wandering waitress, other wait staff helped supply us. Sat in outside patio with beautiful mural. They have other locations which I'd like to get to. Many local Hispanics frequent the good food here.
