Great Mexican food.

This restaurant seems to be decidedly authentic in their Mexican cuisine... at least for as far north as Frostburg, MD is!

Portions were huge and our waitress was attentive. I would recommend you go here. We had dinner and were quite satisfied.

I've been a fan of this restaurant since they started out on Rt 40. The quality just isn't there anymore. My food was really salty and I thought it was just me, but 2 others in my group complained about it as well. It just wasn't very good at all. And, to top it off, our group ordered a pitcher... More

Sometimes one more Mexican restaurant is too many. El Canelo has proven to be the best in our area for many years. Freshest of all the ones in town. Great wait staff too.

Anytime I am in the area I always stop into this establishment to get a great Mexican Food . . . I always get the Chicken Fajitas Dinner . . . It is very tasty and comes out sizzling hot in an iron skillet ! Also the Flan is very tasty and a great way to finish off your meal.... More

Good Mexican in Frostburgh. Had the fajitas and they were perfect. Salsa was just right amount of spicy!

It is hard to eat a healthy dinner or lunch here, but I guess that is the norm for Mexican food. The definitions on the menu are necessary, because there is a bit of a language barrier. No surprise, the food it hot, and the service is pretty good.

I had the burrito lunch special. My wife had the chicken fajitas. Both were good, The outdoor seating was basic to the point of being almost unappealing. The bathrooms were not well kept. Friendly service. Inexpensive- $24 for two adults including tip.

We were visiting friends in the area who frequent El Canelo, and we went here as their guests. The decor and ambience are pure Mexico, and the menu is Mexican enough the make the definitions on the back cover very useful. Everyone at our table had something different. Portions were large, and everyone enoyed their selection. Our server took good... More

The food at El Canelo is good - not the best I've ever had. It was also too hot inside. The A/C wasn't on so we were all sweating. Service was fair.
