It's true! This is our Go To restaurant! The food is amazing, and the menu is extremely creative! Soups are fresh and flavorful! Specials should always be ordered because they truly are unique. Staples, such as the shredded chicken enchiladas and vege filled chile relleno, always please our palates. Drink 1 top shelf margarita, and it will be difficult to... More

A group of 5 went on a weeknight for a 6:30 dinner, and fortunately got a table upstairs after a short wait. It was unfortunately too chilly (for us) for an outside table. Our booth was a little crowded and the 2 of us with our backs to the next booth kept getting bumped by those patrons. Space issues aside,... More

My wife and I ordered take out from here on our way back to GA from our honeymoon in Michigan. It only took them 15 minutes to get our order ready. I had the shredded chicken nachos, and she had the vegetarian Q plate. We both loved our meals, and we would definitely eat here again if we were in... More

Do yourself a favor and try this establishment! No Mexican restaurant in Louisville is even close in comparison. My only complaint is the lack of seating.

My daughter loves Mexican food. She has taken me to El Mundo 3 times and each time she has guided me to another item on the agenda. This weekend I was finally exposed to the full El Mundo experience and fell in love with the place It starts with getting a table. Go upstairs and reserve a table on the... More

My husband and I met our friends here for lunch not too long ago. Their margaritas are very good :-) Their food is also very tasty. I had the lunch size burrito, which was pretty good. We also tried the 'Dippity Do' appetizer, which was excellent. We were seated upstairs on a very hot day, and I almost felt like... More

El Mundo is one of our best here in Louisville. The food, the decor, the staff and the margaritas are excellent. When you go, east on the back patio. It's one of the finest spots for eating and drinking around.

We had dinner here because it received high ratings. The place has lots of character, the drinks were excellent but the food was average.

Unbelievable Mexican food, not your typical tex-mex. Everything is great and the atmosphere is original. The chili rellano with pulled pork is so full of flavor and you can't go wrong with the fish tacos. Yum.

El Mundo is a go to place for our group because of their delicious and potent margaritas. Everyone in our group can find something they enjoy eating there including the vegetarians in the group. The restaurant is very small and the party won't be seated until are members are there. We try to time our visits earlier, around 6:30 to... More
