I concur with other reviews. Great food, excellent service, and pleasant decor. If you are visiting Mammoth Cave be sure to add El Mazatian to your list....you will not be dissapointed!

From recommendations we had been given, we expected great food at reasonable prices. What we didn't expect was superior service. I just wish we were staying here longer to get back here. A winner!!

We stopped in here on our first night in Cave City. The staff was super friendly, and very fast. The food was wonderful, good portion sizes. I'm not usually a fan of shredded chicken, but I really wanted chicken enchiladas they were great!

We were blown away by this outstanding Mexican place in the middle of nowhere. If you're in the area for Mammoth Cave's attractions like we were, this is one of the only restaurants we found that was honest-to-goodness delicious.
