When we booked our hotel room for the evening we asked for local recommendations on places to eat. The staff suggested we try El Cid's Mexican food. We were not disappointed! The food was very tasty and reasonably priced. Living in Phoenix, we have become self-appointed authorities on Mexican food and El Cid came through with flying colors.

My friends and I have eaten here before and we really enjoy it. The food is great and the portions are HUGE, so be sure you are super hungry when you order. The service is quick (we had our full-on dinner plates at our table within five minutes) and the staff is super friendly. We will definitely return.

El Cid is an average mexican restaurant. There is nothing exceptional. The food and service is ok, not great. I have been there a few times with friends and family. The last time I had a chili verde burrito and it had more onions and peppers than meat. Not impressed and not in a hurry to go back.

The service was great, the food even better. Not your generic Tex-Mex fare. It was a nice surprise to find a restaurant like this in a resort area.

Have been to EL Cid many times. the Albondigas Soup is very good. While people here in town love the place-they grew up eating there, I find it very average. Last time I was there I ordered the Marisco Burrito. It was filled with lots of green pepper even more onion and four shrimp. Yes, I counted them. The sauce... More
