Susy'ss Mexican Restaurant, located in Stockton, CA, is a "go to" restaurant for amazing Mexican cuisine, friendly service, and a great selection lf anything "Mexican" for you, when you want to enjoy some of the best Mexican cuisine in Stockton, CA.

As with all of reviews that I publish, I have no affiliation with the restaurant reviewed, and there is no monetary gain on my part, as I am simply a person who likes to eat, and I love to write-up, and publish my dining experiences.

Photo:  It's lunch time, just before noon, on Monday, November 25, 2019, and we've arrived at Susy's Mexican Restaurant to enjoy an amazing lunch.

Photo:  As you enter the restaurant, you'll be greeted with a friendly "Please Wait to be Seated" sign, but your server will be seating you as soon as you enter.  You'll enjoy super friendly service during your visit to Susy's Mexican Restaurant, located in Stockton, CA.  

Photo:  When it comes to professional football, Stockton, along with most of central California is "Raiders territory" and the friendly owner of Susy's, and the logo near the kitchen confirms the fact that Susy's Mexican Restaurant is firmly anchored in "Raiders Territory."

I suppose that you can surmise that your author is a fan or Oakland Raiders football...

Photo:  The "Appetizers" and a lot more section of the menu.  As far as we were concerned, every choice on the menu looked good, but we decided to share the "Suzy Platter..."  What a great offering for two friends to share?

From the "Soups" side of the menu, menudo is offered on weekends... I'm looking forward.

Photo:  Susy's Mexican Restaurant offers a salad bar during lunch and dinner.  We didn't choose from the salad bar, since we were sharing the "Susy's Platter," but the salad bar looked delicious and tempting.  

For a Mexican restaurant, Susy's is unique, as there aren't many Mexican restaurants in central California that offer a salad bar, for lunch and dinner.

Photo:  Our friendly server, Mriiam, looks on, just after she's place a pitcher of draft "Modelo" beer on to our table, and takes our order.

Photo:  Hello, my "foodie" friend, and dining companion, Adrienne, as she samples the chips, salsa, and enjoys a sip of "Modelo" beer.  We shared a pitcher of "Modelo," beer, which definitely added to the amazing lunch we enjoyed.

Photo:  Meet Miriam, our amazingly friendly server, who brings our lunch of "Susy's Platter" to us, with a smile.

Photo:  Miriam has just placed out lunch on the table... and is now chatting with Adrienne about something.... as I snap the photo.  

Our friendly server, Miriam, provided friendly service, along with great company and companionship.  Guess what, Susy's Mexican Restaurant and Miriam... I'm posting a Five Star review on Yelp!

Photo:  I think Adrienne and I are friends, and "foodies," as our hostess, Miriam takes our photo, as we prepare to enjoy our shard lunch of "Susy's Platter."  The "Susy's Platter" is amazing for two friends to share.

Photo:  From the "Appetizers" section of the menu, we ordered the "Suzy's Platter," which is perfect for two "foodies" to share.  Al right... it's a full platter of samplers, and a sample of the amazing cuisine that Susy's Mexican Restaurant offers...

My friend and dining companion, Adrienne and I shared this full platter of food, and we actually had leftovers to take home on our separate ways.  This platter of food, which is "Suzy's Platter," - sampler plate -  is HUGE!!

The Appetizers" menus states, "Susy's Platter... a little of everything.  "Flaunras, tamales, stuffed jalapenos, beans, battered fries, guacamole, sour cream, and pico de gallo." Gee... the menu is an understatement, as the "Suzy's Platter..." for $15.95, in an amazing dish which is perfect to be shared between to "foodies," especially those who savor delicious Mexican cuisine.

"Susy's" Platter" has everything that you could ever imagine to enjoy, a little at a time, in an amazing Mexican restaurant.  It's a dinner for two, an appetizer for a football linebacker, or a lumberjack like the legendary Paul Bunyan.  My "foodie" friend, Adrienne and I are experienced eaters, but "Susy's Platter," got the best of us....

You get a little of everything... and everything is seasoned, delicious, and expertly prepared, and "plated" amazingly.  You will enjoy both red and green tamales, refried beans, cheese, jalapeno samplers, fried potatoes, cheese, guacamole, sour cream, ranch dressing, salsa cruda... corn tortillas... and more.   Oh! .... corn tortillas, and a "bowl" of refried beans, topped with Mexican cheese.

As an aside... you get TWO tamales on the "Susy's Platter,"  one red, and one green.  Each tamale is simply amazing, like everything else on the platter... Life doesn't get any better...

What more can love?  The "Sampler Plate" at Susy's Mexican Restaurant is as good as it gets, as the restaurant is good as it gets.  As "foodies," my friend and dining companion, Adrienne and I both loved our "Susy's Platter" to the maximum.  As "foodies," we know about great food, and Susy's "Sampler Plate" is as good as it gets...

Photo:  My friend and "foodie" dining companion Adrienne and I shared "Susy's Plate..." our friendly server, Miriam gave us two plates, so we could "customize" our individual plates.  Sharing works great with my dining companion, but I cut off pieces of the red and green tamales, and placed a few deep fried potatoes on my plate.  No worries, as Adrienne and I demolished the entire "Suzy's Plate" for this enjoyable lunch.

Photo:  Not our lunch experience, but back in September, 2019, my long time friend Dan Weir enjoyed a "Susy's Platter."  His photo slightly differs from mine, but the greatness of the platter of amazing food can be seen.  However, Dan visited Susy's and enjoyed the "Susy's Platter" on my recommendation, and he loved Susy's Mexican Restaurant.

Thanks, Dan Weir for allowing me to publish your photo.

Let's go back to Monday, May 27, 2019, when I enjoyed an amazing breakfast at Susy's Mexican Restaurant...

You won't find many Mexican restaurants in Stockton that are open for breakfast, and especially a restaurant that features delicious, authentic Mexican cuisine.  No worries, as Stockton is home to Susy's Mexican Restaurant, which opens for breakfast every day at 06:30 in the morning.

Photo:  It's a little after 7 in the morning on Monday, Memorial Day, May 27, 2019, and I've arrived at Susy's Mexican Restaurant for breakfast.

Photo:  As you enter the restaurant, you're greeted with a "Please Seat Yourself" sign, and a white board announcing the daily specials.  I noticed the counter, where I seated myself, as a counter is a great place to dine so you can chit chat with the staff and watch all of the action.

Susy's Mexican Restaurant has been on my things-to-do-list for a couple years, when they were featured on the local news/magazine show, "Good Day Sacramento."  Host Wendy Aguilar enjoyed a great breakfast on live Sacramento television, and after watching her enjoyable experience, I knew that I HAD to visit Susy's.

Photo:  The comfortable dining room is mostly furnished in knotty pine, and is definitely NOT typical for a Mexican restaurant.  Besides the counter, the dining room furniture is booths,  The dining room is clean, comfortable and very attractive.

Photo:  Susy's has a salad/salsa bar in the center of the dining room, which was not being used on this early Monday morning.

Photo:  The breakfast menu features all of your Mexican and American favorites.  There aren't many Mexican restaurants in Stockton that offer breakfast, let along offerings from both sides of the border.  My taste buds run south of the border, so I ordered the "Two Eggs Any Style" and eagerly anticipated the refried beans.

Susy's Mexican Restaurant isn't a taqueria, as it's a full-service, sit-down restaurant.

Photo:  My friendly server, Anna, asked if I wanted a basked of chips, along with salsa, and my answer was enthusiastically, "Yes, of course!"  A basket of chips, and a bowl of salsa for breakfast?  Can you spell "h-e-a-v-e-n?" This amazing attraction especially works, as the chips are warm and fresh, and the salsa in made, in-house.

Yes, that's ice water, as I've become disillusioned with paying $2.00+ for coffee.

Photo:  Just around the corner, you can get a peek into the kitchen, from the large window, in the center of the photo.  I didn't ask the staff, but I suspect that Susy's started life as a "typical" diner, and later morphed into the wonderful Mexican restaurant it is today.

Photo:  Meet Anna, my friendly server, who brings my breakfast to me with a smile.  My breakfast arrived in only about five minutes after placing my order.  Where are the corn tortillas you ask?  After placing my order on the counter, Anna got busy toasting fresh corn tortillas on the griddle.  There is nothing better than fresh, hot corn tortillas with breakfast!

Photo:  Thanks, Anna, for snapping my picture, as I prepare to enjoy a delicious breakfast at Susy's.

Photo:  After Anna delivered my breakfast to me, she threw three large corn tortillas on the griddle to heat, for my dining pleasure.  As she was toasting the tortillas, she chatted with a gentleman, who seems to be a regular customer.  My tortillas arrived hot of the griddle, which enhanced an already amazing breakfast.  You don't have to look closely to see that the restaurant owner is a fan of the Oakland Raider NFL football team.

Photo:  My breakfast of "Two Eggs Any Style," along with chips, salsa, and in-house made corn tortillas.  Muy sabroso!  I could have closed my eyes and imagined that I was enjoying a fine meal in a Tijuana loncheria, as this Mexican breakfast was not only authentic, but super delicious!  At $6.95, including chips and salsa, this amazing breakfast was a bargain!

You get eggs cooked any way, I chose over easy, which is my de facto standard for eggs, and perfectly cooked eggs are a "benchmark" to judge the ability of the chef.  My two eggs arrived perfectly cooked, over easy, just as I'd ordered them.  Along with the eggs were an order of cubed potato, perfectly fried to a light golden brown on the outside, and chewy tender on the inside.  And the refried beans... oh yes!  You could easily tell they were made in-house, as they tasted like the refried beans your grandmother used to make, and they were topped with exactly the right amount of cotija cheese to enhance the delicious flavor.  After you factor in the hot-off-the-griddle corn tortillas, the breakfast I enjoyed on this Labor Day Monday morning was over-the-top in every way!

Eggs, potatoes, refried beans, corn tortillas, and a basket of chips and salsa... does breakfast get any better than this?  If you love an authentic Mexican breakfast as much as I do, Susy's is a must-visit restaurant destination.

Susy's Mexican Restaurant has all bases covered when it comes to outstanding Mexican cuisine, fast, friendly service, and BREAKFAST!!!  When you're in the mood for a delicious breakfast, and your breakfast taste straddles either side of the border, head over to Susy's Mexican Restaurant for a breakfast treat.
