El Cielo was recommended by a friend who eats there several times a week. It's healthy, family owned, the portions are generous. Great fresh mexican food! Service is excellent!

I've reviewed this place once before - it has been a go-to place, but consistently slow service has forced me to re-review. I'm not sure why, but wait times have gotten stupid bad here...35 minutes for sopapillas. We spent 2 hours for 4 tacos and sopapillas! Manager on duty not present to make amends (he did visit a few tables)... More

Great place to g.o if you are seeking great Mexican food in a casual and unpretentious atmosphere. I asked for different sides for my combination plate and they gladly granted my request. Prices are moderate.

Service was horrible. Food was visually unappealing and the quality was extremely unsatisfactory. Our food was burnt. And the proportions were minuscule.

El Cielo doesn't jump out to get your attention...it's located 50 yards back from the road. At the end of a strip mall (which it shares with a Mexican Mercado) it would be easy to dismiss the place. Don't do that... El Cielo offers flavor, flavor, flavor, as well as an enticing mix of standards and new variations on Mexican... More

Just moved to new location.. Inadequately prepared, poorly managed and will not be returning which is unfortunate as this had been one of our favorite restraurants in Greeley. Waited 50+ minutes for our food after being asked to wait 20 minutes to place our order. Food was poor at best - steak fajita burrito was full of rice and 4... More

Hi there, I am deeply saddened to read this review noting that you have once gave us a positive review. The restaurant certainly hit a couple hiccups with the transition. I, Miguel (the son of the owner) am now in charge of the store. I ask you give us the opportunity to make it up to you, and I personally... More

I don't handle spicy food well, but my husband loves spicy...the hotter, the better! El Cielo has a great mix of both! When we went in, I ordered the shredded beef chimi and it was perfect! It's a pretty small place, but the prices are good as is the food! Go try it today!

This is the restaurant we go to when we want a weekly taste of Mexico. Greeley has many Mexican restaurants, but this one serves the perfect combination of wonderful food, great service and friendly atmosphere. Extremely reasonable prices and delicious every time. One of Greeley's best kept secrets!

El Cielo Restaurant in Greeley Colorado has the tastiest Mexican food I have ever eaten! The staff has always been friendly, and the atmosphere like a Mexican ranchito. The cheese enchiladas with the red sauce are rich in cumin flavor, and my son loved the fish tacos. I always enjoy eating here!

With an 'abundancia' of Mexican food restaurants in Greeley... you might easily become frustrated, or exasperated with trying to visit them all, in an attempt to create your own short-list of "Best Of"...
