Gilroy/Hollister - Looking for great Mexican

I'll be in this area for the weekend and I'm looking for great authentic Mexican dinner. What can you recommend? I'd prefer a place that serves drinks, but food is most important.'

  1. Jardines De San Juan, in SJ Batista is a nice busy sit down place with pretty outdoor seating area. Owned I think by the same family that runs Manuel's In Aptos.

    More typical mom & pop place less cozy-comfy is in Hollister on the route into town from the west. More typical (authentic) menu choices.
    El Michoacano Restaurant
    1296 San Juan Road
    Hollister, CA 95023
    (831) 638-9425

    next door to a decent panaderia.
