I have been a patron for over 30 plus years. Love that the salsa is hot and not something you can get at every other Mexican place. The chili is my favorite. In a bowl or on their great enchiladas. Tony knows what we want and starts the cheese dip as soon as we walk through the door. A must... More

Been dining here for years. When you've had a particularly tough day and in need of a mood change and are unable to fly to Colorado, Tony's top shelf margarita may just be the answer. The offerings from the kitchen also consistently measure up - enchilada verdes, especially. Dishes always served hot and service friendly.

We visited on a Sat evening. No problem sitting, there weren't many people there. Nice character inside, nice decor. The food was good, the margaritas were good. I thought it a little expensive. Staff and waiter were extremely friendly.

The dip is way too hot. The food is average to poor. The owner charged us for more Margaritas than we drank on TWO occasions!! Never again!!

I enjoyed a margarita and dinner here. The margarita was tasty, not overly sweet. The dinner consisted of a variety of traditional items, each hot and tasty. Our server was on top of everything, busy but still friendly. Overall a nice experience.

LOVE this place, go at least once a week! Best margaritas and shredded beef burrito. I like Tex Mex, but this place puts out the best margarita and burrito ever. You will be hooked. Very casual atmosphere, not fancy, but that is part of the charm.

To many Mexican restaurants fit that cookie cutter mold, but this place doesn't. When you first find it, don't turn away because of the exterior. The building may be a little worn outside, but inside is friendly and comfortable. This place is a treasure. Food: Spectacular! Everything seemed to have that made-from-scratch taste, from the salsa to the beans to... More

If you are picky about your margaritas, then you have to go to El Mexicano! Handmade from real juices (no pre-mix here) , and quality spirits, you will fall in love with this place. Definitely the best I have ever had!
