Service was good, food was average at best....do not get sour cream on anything, or your meal will be swimming in it. Never been to a good Mexican restaurant that didn't serve tamales...

We frequent this restaurant and enjoy the La Favorita Grande. The chips and salsa are always fresh and the service very good.

Been coming here every visit to the beach since they opened. Good, honest Tex-Mex. Seated this evening right away. Waiter came by and took our drink orders and then a few minutes later our food orders. Piece of advice to "Murph", our waiter, write down the order and slow down my friend. You got my wife's drink wrong and my... More

We really like Mexican and this place is by far the best. The margaritas are perfect and the food is top notch. The cowboy chimichanga is the best I have had and the best I will ever have. Definitely worth a visit. Cheers.

Being in the mood for Mexican food, we used trip advisor to find El Cerro Grande. The complimentary chips and salsa were good. We ordered the pitcher of margaritas which was a mistake. They were obviously made from a mix and very weak. We still drank them though! I would follow the other reviewers' suggestions and order a top shelf... More
