Food good, waitstaff just ok, management wonderful

The food here was good. The waiter was pretty slow at bringing items we needed like flour tortillas for my husbands fajita's. We had to get some charges corrected on our card and that was handled wonderfully by Christina the manager. I will return here when I am out in the area. I can live with so... read more

Great salsa and chips, service is usually terrible though. Hard to go on your lunch break when it takes soo long. Food is good. Nothing spectacular, but better than a lot of other local places. I go about 2x month

Visited on a friday evening for a to go order. The place was very busy, 25 min wait just to be seated. I had requested different sauces than what came on the menu and after a good wait I got my order. One enchillada order was not what I ordered. They immediately fixed that and adjusted my bill for the... More

Being of Mexican descent, I am a little picky when it comes to Mexican cuisine. Our friends who moved to Harrah last year invited us to eat with them here for dinner. The place is nothing special from the outside. It looks like a hole-in-the-wall. But I have learned over the years that some of the best food resides in... More

The food is okay but the restaurant doesn't seem clean. Most of the time my shoes stick to the floor. When the front of a restaurant is dirty you wonder what the back looks like. We have stopped going and won't go back unless something changes.

The big Hombre is a very large burrito dinner. I like mine with grilled chicken inside. Love the food, and the mixed drinks are also very nice. Always busy on Friday night.

This is so bad there are not words to describe it. Nasty! I'm sure the people on the streets eat better food, it's food is stored in filth, it's dry, the salsa is moldy. What else can I say?

My family & I have ate at this place quite a bit since there is not a lot of choices in this town. It seems the last several times we have gone here, the service & food have both been not good. The chips are not fresh, just dumped into a clear plastic container that's been stored who knows where.... More

Its not bad. I've been there a few times, chips and salsa were good as always, they have pretty awesome guacamole salad, of course thats what i ate. Misses got a quesadilla which was more than enough for her. my guacamole came with about 4 huge homemade chips, which i thought was awesome, just added for a little more appeal... More

I have dined at El Nino twice. The first time I ordered the nachos for myself, as I was quite hungry. The nachos came out like the ones at chili's. A dab of meat and cheese on each of the 12 chips. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? All this for eight dollars. Talk about pure profit!!! The second time I stuck... More
