Recommend shrimp fajitas

There isn't really a place to comfortably wait for a table. The food was good, service was slow and bathrooms disgustingly dirty.

After being disappointed by other Frostburg restaurants, we were pleasantly surprised by this one. The evening we visited here, it was raining heavily and I was concerned that my elderly mother would not be able to safely make the walk up the stairs to the entrance. So, the staff opened the Emergency Exit door at street level and my mom... More

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

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.
