We love this place, the second time there and I didn't think they could top the first time but they did it was fantastic. We were 10 minutes early for our reservation and they kept apologizing that it was not ready. They gave us free appetizers for our wait and the staff was fantastic. Very friendly and authentic and they... More

Omg where to start.... We walk into this restaurant and bang... you're in Mexico. The place was decorated in such a fashion to blow your mind. Staff is all Mexican... A very good start if you ask me. The service was impeccable...from the free salsa and chips to the free deserts...It was all amazing. Even had the owner come to... More

This restaurant serves the best Mexican food in all of New York. The Enchiladas are outstanding, as are the steaks, burritos,pork and chicken. The Salsa is fantastic, made fresh and in house. The service is spectacular, you wait for nothing. The place is as clean as it gets with professional wait staff.

We were here recently with family members who consider themselves experts in Mexican cuisine. And we had heard good things about this place. I will also add that we have been having a string of bad restaurant experiences in Saratoga lately so decided to try a place that others had been to recently and enjoyed. I will start by saying...

My girlfriends and I wanted to have dinner out in Saratoga without spending too much. I suggested El Mexicano and so we met there. The service was absolutely phenomenal. The attention level was off the roof. You get a lot of food for the money and I have been several times and have never had anything I didn't like. Included... More
