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!

    Nice food but rushed service. We felt pressurized to hurry and they simple gave us the check in the end even though we wanted to stay longer and had more drinks

    Fun place with excellent margheritas! The tacos are also delicious. We always make a point of dining at Celia's when we are in Palo Alto.
