A word from Celia's Mexican Restaurant
Welcome to Celia's, thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you! Our goal is to provide natural and fresh home-style Mexican food with the best quality. We are proud to be a part of this beautiful community. Your patronage is greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for being our guest.

Every day at Celia's we make fresh salsas, our tortillas are prepared fresh without lard, our steak and pork are lean, and our chicken is presented skinless and trimmed. We make fresh guacamole daily, our tamales are handmade daily, and we serve three different types of beans (refried, black beans, and pinto). Daily homemade flan with the best, high quality ingredients, and last but not least our margaritas do not come out of a machine, instead our secret mix is made daily! Come and enjoy!
Diner Reviews
  • "We always enjoy dinner at Celia's finding it reliable and the food tasty. The guacamole serving is generous. The servers are pleasant and attentive. A little bit of Mexico in Palo Alto."

  • "Nice service, 12pm was not crowded. A good time was had by all for lunch. (Rainy day too.) Arrive early for parking or carpool."

  • "when we got there the hostess had no idea what opentable was. She said they didn't use it. Which was confusing since i had the email to show her on my phone. She didn't understand, so i would probably not use the opentable to place a reservation there, since they were clueless. We did get seated rather fast once she realized that it was just myself and my fiance and our service was awesome. The food was good, the service was great. i really love this neighborhood gem."

  • "My father in law swears by this place. After a few visits I see why he loves it and I hate it. Food is bland, not spicy, and tastes like it came out of a can. The place never has people in it. That is until senior citizens come in droves to have "Mexican food" to mix it up from their normal "American" fare. The only thing that makes this place decent is that the chips and salsa are bountiful and the staff is truly Hispanic. Unless you are over 50 check out el charro for some solid food and strong drinks!"
