We recently ate here, and were very pleased with our appetizer (the pico with avocado) but were not so pleased with our lunches. Hubby had the carnitas and found them flavorful but overlooked and dry. I had the steak and was surprised to see how overlooked it was. It was too dry to be tasty at all. The salsa is... More

I've eaten at El Amigo with friends several times and we've always received excellent service. The food is very good, especially the AC Vegetable plate, although the black beans are hit and miss.

Very good and authentic Mexican food with great service. Kids friendly too. I Highly recommend place. We love their fajitas. Their home made salsa is just great. Try their diablo shrimp.

My wife and I visited El Amigo because of the high ratings on Trip Advisor. We love Mexican food and had high hopes we were in for a wonderful experience. We were not impressed. First the service was pretty slow and the place was not too busy. The server was friendly. I do have to say they make a very... More

Felt sick afterward. Not good. The peppers were not good. The chips tasted stale. We stopped on a trip and it was also expensive. Try somewhere else

Last night we once again enjoyed a quick trip to El Amigo. I say quick because the food is always fast, hot and delicious. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is super friendly.

We were in the mood for some Mexican cuisine and decided to give El Amigo a try. We were seated right away and our server came promptly with some chips and salsa. It didn't take long at all after we ordered to get our food. The presentation looked good and the taste was better than I expected. The price was... More

It's our favorite place to eat and we have to eat here at least once a week. When I go on vacation it's the first place I want to eat when I get home. Great food, friendly staff, fast service! I can't say enough good things about this place.
