Ever since i can remember Ticos has been there and its always been packed.After almost 20 yrs i finally tried something else on the menu. The fish tacos are incredible, chili relleno burrito is a main staple in my diet,and the salsa is really good. Just the right mix of stuff.Did you know they have breakfast? The best damn pancakes Ive ever had. Just plain,nothing fancy, but hands down the winner. The fresh squeezed orange juice is worth whatever ot takes to get it. I have never tasted better. Its family operated and owned and they are great people. The second they started doing well, they began giving back to the community. They no longer open at 6 or 7 am, uh, yeah that sucks. Its 9 or 10 am now. Too late for me to eat breakfast. If your in Simi and you want mexican food, try this place. I will post photos later.

The food is OK but they only offer a limited selection of beer, and not wine selection at all. And they don't permit carry-in wine. Also, parking is very limited to just a few spaces. I'll stick with Maria's - a full service family-owned authentic Mexican restaurant - only a couple blocks away.

My girlfriends and I came here for an early morning breakfast. It's a cute little Mexican restaurant located in a strip mall. Service was great, breakfast menu is large. Although I didn't have an omelette this time, I definitely will at my next visit. Everyone enjoyed it. We will be back
imagine being invited home! Thatâs the best way to describe Carrilloâs. Nothing fancy or overstated. No need to impress. Just let the food do the talking. The tamales in the display case looked great, tied on each end rather than being folded over. This time I simply had a crisp beef taco. It had the white Mexican cheese rather than the cheddar found at too many Mexican restaurants. Tasted great. It came with a basket of chips.

Iâll place Yolandas in the category of mediocre mainstream Americanized Mexican eateries. We had dinner here with a group of about 13 folks on a Saturday evening. Service for the most part was average â though at the end of the evening I was given my check and then waited, and waited, and waited some more for someone to actually come and get my credit card for processing even though I slapped down my card a split second on top of the bill after the waiter placed it on the table. That was annoying.Food is hardly noteworthy. I had the vegetable fajita option. As I wasnât looking for a super large or heavy calorie meal, this worked. It was ok. And of course, as is common fare, crunchy chips and salsa on the table.Another point though â we were in the back room â and it was so unbelievably loud â really difficult to hear others or carry a conversation. Only ended up here because it is where the party for the evening was planned. On my own, wonât be returning. It does seem fairly popular, the place was full, and when I was leaving, a wait to get inside. Different strokes for different folks. Not my idea of good Mexican food. Marias continues to be perhaps the best quality option in Simi, and I would even venture toward one of several smallish strip mall Mexican places we have in Simi for a better meal.

After reading the review on Trip Advisor I had to make a choice between Campo's and Mission Burrito whom share the same parking lot!! I choose Mission Burrito. First of all inside where you order a guy asking me for my order was glossy eyed, obviously had been drinking on drugs or just high - he was rude, short with me and almost made me walk out. Wore a cocking ball cap sort of off to the side. I told him I needed more time to look over the menu until another person much nicer took my order. I sat out in the patio area which was pretty nice. When you order they give you a tray with your chips and salsa on it. I ordered the Chili Verde Burrito wet with rice and beans. The chips where warm and the hot salsa was pretty darn good. My food in general was very good, the pork was not overly salty and beans and rice were good. Price not bad either. I would recommend but the cocky rude fella has to go!!!! He is very bad for business as far as I'm concerned.

We found this place by chance, the wait at Yolanda's was to long. It has the best food & cost is 1/2 of other places in town. The service is wonderful, they are expanding & so there will be even more room. Check them out, you'll love them.

This place has been in Simi for a long time. They serve all the Mexican American favorites it seems.First, the place is cash only, so be ready for that. The place was very busy and I ordered the tacos asada with rice and beans. The asada could have been more flavorful although the portions are substantial. The refried beans were dried out and not at all creamy. The rice was meh. I did enjoy the salsa bar and the help.

Not a great fan of the typical Americanized Mexican sit down restaurants, preferring the more authentic Mom & Pops. I must say the thin warm tasty chips and excellent salsa was a good start- though most all have the same to start.The carnitas burrito (no rice, no beans) with just cilantro, pico de gallo and avocado was excellent. The Cadillac peach margarita was also very good (they didn't skimp on the tequila).Have to try the al pastor next time. Any place with good carnitas and al pastor is a pretty good indication that it's not your run of the mill gringo Mexican restaurant. Now for the molcajete.....

Multiple locations - the one in Simi Valley is the one we've visited in March 2012 and wanted to add a review since the food and experience was so much fun.
Buddy and I were looking for a spot with booze and reasonably good Mexican. We found kickin' margaritas and really good food. I asked the counter guy (you order at the counter) if the margaritas kicked? He said "If I make 'em they do" and I watched his pour for that pitcher and it was STRONG! The chips are help yourself, with 4 salsas and pickled carrots, onions and jalapenos. I had shrimp fajitas and my buddy had chicken fajitas and both were very good. All the staff was friendly and helpful. We left full and with a buzz. Couldn't have asked for more! If I lived here I'd be a regular.
