If only we had an "El Amigo" in Germany! El Amigo is usually the first culinary place I visit every time I am in Valpo. I just love their beef burrito and bean dip. Keep it up guys!

Authentic Mexican food that you will love. Hands down one of the best in the region! Every time I dine in or carry out, it just gets better and better. Love all the people that work there, always nice. I get something different every time and it's always good food. It's a most try restaurant!

We have been here twice and the food has been excellent both times. The place is fairly small and very casual but the place was full both times we were there. The portions are huge, maybe a little too big, but that would be the only complaint if I had one. Definitely recommend this place for great food at a... More

Every time we visit family in Valpo, we make a stop here. Good, fast Mexican food at reasonable prices. Never a complaint.

El Amigo in Valparaiso, In. brings great food to anyone who goes there, whether to eat in or take out. It's a great late night stop after a long day. I'd recommend this restaurant to people who want AUTHENTIC Mexican food.

Best Chilles Reneros ever! Better than any other I've tried through the years. Don't expect fancy but the food is very good.

Your standard Mexican food restaurant in America. It's had good, standard Mexican food that was great for takeout. I would return.

We enjoy the unbelievable food coupled with fast, friendly service and affordable prices. There are no "bells and whistles" about El Amigo - what you see is what you get; great, authentic Mexican food at a delicious price.

I do not tire of the meals. This time I had the Tostada Dinner. What a treat. Loaded with your choice of bean, steak, or chicken. The avocado slices are the best. I frequent at least twice a month. Service is always very good. If you are looking for the best in Valparaiso look no further. Great menu, very casual... More

My husband & I both enjoy eating at El Amigo. It is not a fancy place at all, very bare bones, but the food is the most authentic Valparaiso has to offer. We generally get the chile rellenos, steak tacos, chile chilaquiles or burritos (which are huge). Their prices are very resonable.
