Fast

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

When in for dinner one night after work. Wow! These guys are quick! At dinner time, I had a drink and dinner combo and was in and out in about 30 minutes!

This place needs some work. We walk in and wait to be seated. I noticed a sign taped the the bathroom door that asked patrons not to write on the bathroom walls. That should have been my first sign. I ordered a house margarita on the rocks with salt. When it was brought to my table I noticed a bruised... More

We live summers in Ellijay and like to see a movie and have dinner occasionally. Last month we ate at El Jinete and except for too many jalapenas, we enjoyed it immensely. Last night we returned to El Campesino, which served smaller portions with similar prices, to El Jinete. We started with the Mexican guacamole. It was served in a... More

Just across GA 53 and the Kroger parking lot is a beautiful restaurant called El Campesino. Welcoming inside you are immediately seated, the manager brings over chips and salsa and your waiter delivers the menus and takes the drink order. On tap is Modelo Especial - not many places have that in Georgia. The wife ordered the fish filet and... More

Had the Steak Ranchero last night. Heavily salted and the texture was off. I found out why when I woke up at 2AM explosively ill. Here it is past noon and I still can't leave the house. Won't go into detail, but I'm dehydrated from all the fluids I'm loosing being sick from the bad steak. UPDATE: I got to... More

We just moved to town and love Mexican food. We at at El Sombrero at least once a week. We tried El Campensino hoping it was to be our new place, as it's very close to home. We were not impressed when we sat down to a table and literally were swarmed with flies. Dozens of FLIES all over us... More

We were really hungry and stopped in to get some food! The service was great, the facility is clean (including the restrooms), and the food was excellent! I ordered a combination meal and my husband ordered something from the "larger meal" section. I don't think that is what it was called, but it wasn't a traditional combo at a Mexican... More
