Fast and professional

We have been coming here for many years. This last time the service was especially good and fast. The food is always tasty and hot, although it is a traditional mex/am franchise operation. Reasonable prices, regular servers remember who you are, and there is usually a wait on weekend nights. We... read more

Ive been a regular customer here for several years, but we decided to have our company Christmas party there. Was the 28th of December 2015. Our office doesn't normally close until late, and these guys were so understanding they offered to stay open late so we could really enjoy ourselves. And we sure did. The food is awesome. the drinks... More

Reasonable prices, regular servers remember who you are, and there is usually a wait on weekend nights. We also noticed that all the servers were men.

We went with a group of seven people. While we waited a bit for the table service was fantastic. The food was very good and everyone was pleased with their choices. What struck me was the total bill was just over $100 which is a rare occurrence with such a large group. Thanks for a great dinner.

Wish they would have some inspired dishes, like Menudo! Friends like their Chicken soup = big bowl. Chips are fresh & crunchy.

All the dishes we ordered kind of looked the same and tasted the same. The service was good and the restaurant is clean but, there is no sense going back there.

The food came out quicker than any place I've been. The prices were okay about $7 for a taco salad. A 12oz draft of beer was $3.50. The food was fine. Typical I guess. Liked the atmosphere and service was good as well.

This was my second trip to El Campesino. The first was with my wife and we liked it so well that I took my granddaughter there for lunch. We both loved our meals, her's a taco salad and I had a combo plate which was delicious. Typical of most Mexican restaurants, the service was fast and courteous. I will go... More

This is a nice Mexican restaurant. Every time that I have been there, someone greets us at the door and quickly seats us. Chips and salsa show up at the table right away, and a waiter quickly takes our drink order and follows up with getting our food order. The food comes out quickly and is always very good. I... More
