Fantastic Authentic Food

If you are looking for Mexican food you should really try El Cerro Grande Murrells Inlet, SC. We had a party of 12 mixed with adults and kids.

We come to the area once every year and we usually have one meal at El Cerro. We are big Mexican food fans and there really isn't much to choose from in the area. There is a far better Mexican restaurant up on Rt 17 but it's about 20 miles north of here, so if you're staying in the Murrells/Surfside... More

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...

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.
