The food here was extremely delicious! I had the Fajita Salad which was so tasty! The chicken was full of flavor and it was topped with fresh guacamole. My family members enjoyed the Quesadilla Suprema, Fajitas and Kids Beef Taco. Everyone loved their meals and, in addition, the margaritas were only $2.99 on a Sunday night and very refreshing. Wonderful... More

Excellent food and nice outdoor eating area. We ate dinner on the patio and lunch inside the following day. Inside the restaurant is nicely decorated, but a bit dark.

The food was great. Big portions and low price! The salsa wasn't a favorite of mine but it was free. Awesome Margaritas!

We went here for lunch before visiting Mammoth Cave. The atmosphere was great with nice decor. Service was excellent. All of the employees were friendly, and the food came out super fast! We got our food in ten minutes tops. The food came out hot; the portions were more than enough; and the prices were very reasonable. We got three... More

This restaurant is right off of I-65 making it easily accessible if you're traveling. We chose El Mazatlan because there aren't many dining options in this area and fast food didn't sound good. There is plenty of parking, even at the peak of dinner time, and we were immediately seated when we arrived. It took a few minutes to place... More

When I approached El Mazatlán, I thought is was a dive. However, when I entered, my perspective completely reversed. The venue was beautiful with tasteful Mexican décor. My meal was delicious. It was well-prepared and healthy. I ordered the quesadillas with an avocado salad and a margarita. The service was fast and friendly. It is no wonder that El Mazatlán... More

Obviously a local favorite, tucked behind a gas station - and that's not a bad thing. For about $12 I got the dinner especial - a taste of everything. It was not only delicious, it would feed at least 2 if not more. It wasn't a taste, it was one of each :-) since I'm traveling alone, I have lunch... More

We really love the food, I order Chile Rel and it was sooo good, for the three of us plus 2 margarita it's under 30 dollars, inc tips! Try this place when you are in the Cave City area.
