I have eaten at El T''s before but this place had some of the freshest food I have eaten in a chain in a long time. Had 2 meals there and both were very fresh and tasty.

We love this place. Our favorite server is Gloria. Gloria keeps the chips and salsa coming and our glasses are never empty. The carne asada is tender and the sauce is excellent. The carne asada burrito is also very good. I Have never had a bad meal here or bad service. The manager always makes rounds to make sure all... More

Been eating here every time I'm in the OC, and had to turn back my chicken enchiladas they were so tough, I couldn't cut the chicken with a knife. Service took more than 45 minutes. Food cold when arrived. Too bad.

It was an easy walk from my hotel. Good meal with a large group of folks and food arrived fast. Great salsa and chips to start off with. Good wait staff and didn't have to ask for refills. Very clean with pretty large seating compacity. Nice bar area to hang out if that's what you like to do.
