My husband and I love Mexican food and have a favorite place in Michigan that I used to eat at with my father back in the 70s. We stopped in El Taco Real on a recent visit to Hammond with friends who raved about the Queso Fundido. We had it as an appetizer and it was delicious. My husband had... More

Ive eaten here 3 times in the past couple months while traveling on business. This place is always busy and full of locals. Long established with wait staff that have all been around for a long time. The food is very flavorful and basic. No real frills and not like a lot of mass-market mexican restuarants...but the freshness and effort... More

My husband and I shared the Chicken Mole and Chile Rellenos on a Saturday night. After a horrifying Chile Relleno at another Mexican restaurant a month ago (a tip-take the wrapper off before microwaving) I was so appreciative of a true "home-made" dinner. Guacamole is impeccable! The Quesa Chorizo appetizer can feed two for dinner. Parking can be an adventure,... More

The ribs in salsa verde are really good and a very generous serving. The price could be a little lower but the service is good.

We went to this restaurant with a group of friends on a Saturday night. Arriving at 6pm, the place was packed. I think the parking lot closest to the restaurant fills up quickly because the lot is very small. There is more parking across the street. We had a short wait for our table but I think that was because... More

I ordered off of the ala carte menu and had a burrito. It was very plain and unimaginative - good but then almost anything tastes good smothered in melted cheese. They list a "Garden" burrito which sounds like it might contain more vegetables but all this means is you get a bit of shredded lettuce and finely chopped tomato. I... More

With the Calumet region having numerous good Mexican restaurants it was nice to try El Taco Real again and to have their food still be some of the best.
