Cute little place for Mexican food! Cold Draft beer, great menu, great salsa and chips! Priced moderately. We had really nice service, very prompt and catered to our needs. Table of 10 and the employees did a great job keeping up with us. Restaurant was super busy and they still were spot on! Very Nice!

We have been coming here for years and always enjoy the food, drinks, and friendly staff. I also enjoy that you can customize dishes as long as they're not too crazy of a request. For example, I have asked for chimichanga with added chorizo or enchilada with a fried egg on top. No problemo!

So you think good Mexican food must cost a fortune or can not have a coupon in your Reach magazine. You are so wrong. So very, very wrong! The food here is priced on par with that place that is open til 2 am and now serves breakfast. You feel compelled to tip over 20% because the quality and service... More

Fast and friendly service. Food is good. Prices are reasonable. Family friendly. Good for groups. Can eat outside or inside. Probably the best place to eat in Loveland.

Tremendous value. Super cheap especially with coupons. Can pretty much get any Mexican dish you can think of. Haven't had anything I hated.

The waiter was very attentive to our needs. We ended up here after trying to eat at a Italian restaurant that is right around the corner where we couldn't even get waited on. We shared our story with El Picante and they made sure that we were treated right! I bet they get a lot of their customers!

I have been getting takeout from El Picante for a long time but last night I had dinner here with family. We were very disappointed with the quality of the food. The guacamole was horrible; it tastes like onion and mayonnaise. I brought some leftovers home and the guacamole is still bright green, which shows that there isn't much avocado... More

I've ate at el cholula, el rancho grande, and the horrible fiesta brava. I must say this is by far the best everytime for not only value, but flavor! I continue to drive here though Its a further drive than the others.
