My husband and I had the worst service ever , the waitress (there were 2) totally ignored us , the bus boy came and got our drink order and my husband had to call one of the waitress s over to take our order. We were totally ignored after that.. The busboy did more for us than the Waitress.. They were not busy so they just didn t do their job.
bad service my friend and i got, they took for ever to bring our drinks, also to take our order.They were not even busy.We had to wait a long time to get our food,once they brought it it waa cold n my food was raw.We asked for napkings and they never brought them.also to hive us our check. not going back there again.worse servive ever!
I moved to Ripon 4 yrs ago and so fortunate to find Esmeraldas.
The food has never been a disappointment I love eating there as well as take
out. Bean dip to die for!!
Everyone there is so nice and it is a great place to take a family for meals
I absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone that loves Mexican food.
We have known Esmeralda for several years, from her being a waitress/manager at the El Rosal restaurants to Damien's Mexican restaurant until finally being the owner of her own place. The food is always great, the atmosphere is wonderful and the waitresses and owners are incredibly friendly. Everyone is treated like family. Rich and I would love to give 10+ stars to Esmeralda's restaurant. In fact, for my husband's birthday today we are taking family and friends to Esmeralda's to celebrate. Keep up the great job Esmeralda.
My husband and I are truck drivers. We always make a point of stopping at Esmeralda's when we're passing through Ripon and have time to stop. The food and atmosphere is wonderful. The employees are cheerful and friendly. Being in a different place day after day makes you feel lonely at times. Its nice to walk into Esmeralda's and even after having not dropped in for several months, they recognize us and are happy to see us again, asking us where we've been and even remember what we like to order. Its our favorite place to eat in California!
Esmeralda's is one of my favorite Mexican Restaurants. the salsa and beans and chips are awesome. I love their Machaca . but what really does it for me, is a fantastic dish called Mari's Special. would recommend this to anyone, be advised it is a little bit on the spicy side(makes my face sweat),
but isn't that the reason why we go for Mexican?.....take it from an old truck driver, i eat at Mexican Places all around the Country, but Esmeralda's is the top of my list....can i give 10 stars?
I love this mexican restaurant not only because my name is also Esmeralda but because everything from when you walk in get seated to walking out is fantastic the only down fall is they are a little slow on getting back to you with re fills, extra napkins and things of that nature but the atmosphere makes up for it. I still give it a 5 star.
Esmeralda's is BY FAR my favorite Mexican restaurant!!!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!! The food is great, the service is friendly & helpfull. My favorite things to order are the Flour Tortilla Chips, Shrimp Tacos & Chimichangas!!!!!!!!
