As close as you will get to real mexican food & great service

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... read more

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

My wife and I visited this restaurant for the first time and were very impressed by the friendly and attentive service. The food was among the best Mexican food I've had since I left California. Lunch prices were extremely reasonable, especially with the free extra appetizers and desserts provided. We will certainly eat there again.

Our second time there. The food was good overall, but it was not user friendly as far as taking individual checks, since we were state workers and requried receipts for proof of meal price.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was very good and the service great. Would have been nice if they weren't so good...the food was out before we finished our first drink. The extra appetizer and dessert that the brought out was a nice touch.

Lunch here is a great value and service is always good. First they start you out with chips and fresh salsa. When you run out they will gladly bring more if you ask. Next up is a free cheese mini-quesadilla, tastes great with the salsa on it. Lunch combos are around $8-$9 or you can get a taco lunch for... More

My Father and I spend time together one afternoon a week and I pick where we have lunch. It is a special time for the both of us. I picked this restaurant because we both love Mexican food and we have never been there before. I pass the establishment all the time and I was excited to try their food.... More

My wife and I love this restaurant! We've been coming here for the last 5 years. We love the food, the atmosphere and the waitstaff. We shared the vegetarian plate with an additional taco. The bathrooms are very clean! Let's face it, that's important! My wife ordered a margarita and I got an El Toro. Then I ordered a sangria.... More

Ok. I just like to get good, we'll prepared food when I pay for it. Is that too much to ask? What happened to the chef taking pride in their food? I ordered the Enchilada Combo plate. Complimentary Chips and salsa were served. The Chips tasted store bought and the salsa choices were marginal at best. Very little flavor and... More
