My favorite Mexican restaurant

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

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.

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
