For the price, the food was OK. It was a little expensive for the quality. It looks to be popular with the locals and margaritas were flowing! It seemed a little cramped in the building, even though it is quite large. It was loud and hard to enjoy conversation.

This place was just okay. The portions were typical Mexican restaurant sized, with 100+ options. However, there wasn't much on the menu under $10. Large combo platters could feed 2 if you were looking for a way to offset costs. I had a chicken and a cheese enchilada. My husband got the large enchilada/taco platter. My brother opted for the...

Our waitress really hustled. Fresh salsa and chips to start the meal were delicious. Portion sizes large. I ordered a small combo and couldn't finish it. Great soup. Burrito was very full, perhaps a bit bland, but most authentic Mexican food is usually like that.

We chose El Cid because all the other places in town were closed (why close so early in summer) and did not have high expectations. I was wrong. We walked in and immediately were greeted and seated. Our waitress was awesome. My wife even said she was the best waitress we have had in a long time. Our meal was... More

We ordered food to go. It was ready in 5 minutes instead of the promised 15 minutes. That was about the only plus. Chips were good but the salsa was not really salsa and want spicy enough. The taco was bland. The chile relleno and enchilada were both covered with the same sauce and tested ok. They swapped the chicken... More

Very pleased overall with our dining experience. Everyone very friendly. The margaritas were great! My husbands burrito was good, what you would expect of Mexican fare. The waitress was very accommodating when I ordered my cheese quesadilla. Gave me 1/2 beef and 1/2 chicken. To be honest, I did not care for the chicken 1/2, was dark meat rather than... More

Nice Mexican restaurant in Oakhurst. Very nice margaritas and tasty burrito. Chips and fresh pico de gallo were excellent. Would go there again if I ever came back to Oakhurst.
