Food here is very good and service is terrific! I recommend any of their seafood items especially the seafood cocktails which are awesome. Only bad thing is place is a little ghetto looking and run down. Great place for fast service lunch.

Surprised to see so few reviews for this place as it's near a number of motels. I was lucky that they were still open after 8 pm on a Sunday. The decor inside is not great and it was understandably quiet but these did not detract from the friendly, family-run atmosphere. I was seated and served quickly. The chips came... More

The food was fresh, hot and delicious. The tortilla were so soft and wonderful. They brought chips with diced tomatoes, re-fried beans, and salsa for the chips. YUM!

I can not say I hate it but also can't love it, the food I had so far tasted good, hot and 60% Mexican, so not bad. I would really like if they had a better selection of beers, not all Mexican people have that poor selection of buds or coronas so it would be nice to have a good... More

Food was ok priced fare. It's not much for atmosphere. I didn't like their margarita it was the Cadillac too. Their Chili Rellonos had a white sauce on it. It was great but the chicken taco was on a flour tortilla and I didn't care for it. Service was a little slow but place wasn't busy

It's a very simple restaurant with excellent food! The chili verde is excellent, as are the giant burritos. The staff are always super friendly. Don't expect fancy decor, just delicious food!

They have a couple of locations so if you want some food quick in and out that is decent they have some pretty good food. I like the foam cups so that when it gets really hot the ice doesn't melt and my cup doesn't leak in my car.

Have been going to Colimas since 1990 and it still remains the best Mexican food around! Even better than Mexico! Their chips and salsa are always fresh and the burritos are excellent! Everyone I've ever taken there loves the food as well! Great place for any meal or celebration!

Food is good. Nothing great, but it will certainly do. The location is in the downtown area which makes it very easy to get to. The waiters do their jobs. The food is pricey for what it is. I would recommend.

Good food and helpful staff. restaurant is on Main Street in Visalia and fairly close to the Marriott. Downtown Visalia is always busy so look for parking spot in one of the City lots just off Main Street.
