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.

Authentic awesome Mexican food. The chicken fajitas were very delicious and the guacamole is very fresh. The service was very excellent. This place isn't very far from I-80688 and a worthwhile stop if traveling through. This is a PET FRIENDLY establishment.

I have eaten here on several occasions and I have to say we have never been disappointed. The service is excellent and I love that the food is authentic. There were 8 in our party and we were eating in less then 30 minutes. The complimentary chips and salsa are delicious. Parking may be tricky, but we have always found... More

Started out with chips/salsa, guacamole, and queso dip. The salsa, guac, and cheese were all fine. Not anything to die for, but they were okay. My entree was pretty good...I got the Carne Encevollado which was basically steak strips with onions served with beans and rice and flour tortillas. It was pretty good, with the steak being buttery and tender,... More

We stopped in while passing through town. The decor was colorful, but the food was not. Apparently they don't have a spice rack in the kitchen. The portions were large, but for example, my wife's taco meat was seemed to be just hamburger and onion. The pico de gallo was onion, tomato and some cilantro. No spice, no lime juice... More

I've been here a few times... mostly for lunches with my coworkers, and I've never been disappointed. The portions are usually large, and you'll find many different types of hot sauces at your disposal. You won't go away hungry!
