Pretty standard mexican food. The enchiladas plate was good. The fried icecream was also pretty good. Service was decent. Location was clean, but not as impressive as some of the other Mexican restaurants in the area.

6 weeks ago we ate here and had no problem whatsoever. A friend and I ate lunch at this location on Friday, August 8th. It was about 12:45pm. The restaurant was not overwhelmingly busy but the staff remained unattentive. We waited and waited for drink refills, salsa refills and not to mention our food. Our waitress was not very good...

Taco Bell does a better job... El Chicos is over rated to say the least. El Chicos was the first Mexican restaurant in Shreveport. People only go there because they do not know any better.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is great - especially the chips, hot salsa and relish. It really is good Tex-Mex food. My family started going to El Chico almost 50 years ago when there was only one restaurant. It has been a stable in our family for birthdays, any type of get together. You seldom get... More

Nice looking restaurant in a good location with good chips and salsa. That's where the good stuff ends. The food quality and taste reminds me of a Mexican tv dinner. The taste and look of the food is unappetizing. Honestly, I've had better tex-mex from the drive through. The service when my family and I were there was slow and... More

I particularly like the chips and salsa, which are complimentary. The beer is always cold and served in a frosted mug. The fajitas, enchiladas, and chile reejenos are excellent.
