Those are my impression of the El Mexicano. I'm no latino but i do love Mexican food. But sadly this Mexican resto cant full fill my expectation. Food is okay, not wow and furthermore staffs were bit unfriendly. Maybe was not my lucky day

Went their for a birthday party. Restaurant has a great atmosphere with traditional live Mexican music on weekends. The singers stand in one place all night, which happened to be near our table and it was very loud which made talking very difficult. Would be nice if they move around.
