I've eaten at El Korita off and on for years with mixed results. The food is decent but not the best. The prices are somewhat low. The service almost always sucks. They had a really low sanitation grade a few years ago; they've brought it up significantly, but it's never been as high as I like. I eat there if... More

It's the best Mexican restaurant in Goldsboro. Staff is always friendly, and the service is quick. Great lunch or dinner destination for Mexican food lovers!

The food and the service is definitely lacking here. The waitress spent most of her time hanging out in the bar area and rarely checked on us and the food wasn't prepared well at all. We actually felt like we were imposing on them by asking for a drink refill. If the service had been bad, but the food was... More

El Korita has one major plus, one major minus and one mid-sized minus. The plus is that the food is tasty and authenticly Mexican. I enjoy their chicken taco salad greatly. The major minus is that the rumor out there is that they were slapped with a 75% cleanliness rating by the health inspection a couple of years ago. Most... More

Decent food at a decent price. I've never had a bad experience here, but I've also never had a memorable experience here. The only complaint I would have against this place is the wierd smell it sometimes has when you go inside. We order mostly to go anyway. I do recommend the carne asada tacos and the flautas.
