Tortilla Soup

Small and nice Mexican restaurant option. Recommended Chicken Tortilla Soup, and Taco "Carne Asada", that are better than Chicken or Pork Tacos.

Your taste buds will smile and your tummy will be happy! Great fresh food with excellent taste to the fillings, NO grease, wonderful spicing. I always have a hard time making all the decision...burrito or taco? ...black beans or pinto... cilantro sauce or not... jalapenos...but they have great help you will "help" you! I always get a Jarrito but I... More

My husband and I had a great lunch date at El Diablo. Love the fresh choices. Easy to do vegetarian. You can see everything being made. Great service and food. Eating al fresco is a great choice too. Will be back for sure!

We've been having lunches and dinners frequently for years at El Diablo. The food is consistently wonderful and fresh, and is prepared before your eyes in the kitchen behind the counter and then assembled at the counter by--all of them--really nice people. My friends recommend fish and pork, and I love the sauteed vegetables. We all like the cilantro-lime sauce.

I come here probably two or three times a month. It has amazing and fresh salsa (get the medium or hot), and the pork burrito!

If you are walking or riding a bike---great! But if you want to find a parking place, that can definitely be a challenge. I like my burrito with Gordonzola and Sauteed Veggies and the staff can be very accommodating. The Mahi Mahi Burrito is okay, but expensive and messy. This is a good takeout place but there is very limited... More

We decided to eat here due to the reviews. This is a counter service restaurant which was clean & open. There are about 8 small tables and about 6 stools in a window counter. Some seating outside & ample parking in a small lot or on the street. The workers were not overly friendly, but not rude. We ordered the... More

We stopped in for lunch.You order at the counter and the make them to your specifications: lettuce or cabbage, mild or spicy salsa, etc. They fix them wrapped in foil "boats" so that they are not so messy to eat. I had the fish, veggie and pork tacos and they were all delicious. The pork was the spiciest of the... More
