Good food

My family and I ate here and had a good meal. There is nothing fancy about the restaurant, but the food and service were both good.

The restaurant was close to where we were staying. I had fajitas with chicken, beef and shrimp. It was good but would been better with more veggies. Overall the place is clean with nice ambiance.

Amazing chimichangas, customer service was great. It only took about 15 minutes to get our food! Atmosphere was good and very clean. Family friendly restaurant. This is a must for Mexican food.

I hate to write a bad review. However, this place needs to be improved. We were welcomed by a very nice gentleman and was seated quickly. Our server arrived soon after. No smile and really not much to say. She took our order including the children's taco salad and sampler. The taco chips and salsa was good but it went... More

Such good food hear and great prices! Free chips and salsa to start that are always warm and delicious. My family orders two platters and that will feed 2 adults and 2 nineteen year olds. Margaritas are delicious and the lunch buffet is amazing as well. Will keep coming here every time we are in myrtle beach. Best Mexican food... More

We went in to take a look at the menu. A minute later we already walked out because they had no vegetarian dishes! Too bad, they missed out on 4 people who were hungry!

We were on a quest to find seafood, but all were full. We decided on El Cerra at the last minute. I'm glad we did as the service was excellent and the food was so good. It was not fancy, and typical Mexican food.

A typical Mexican restaurant featuring mainly Tex-Mex type food. Large portions and good salsa are a bonus...although we didn't drink alcohol, several customers seemed to be enjoying the various frozen and mixed drinks available during Happy Hour.

Must try the buffalo chicken nachos! YUM! Waitress was great and the food good and good portions. We didn't have to wait to be seated even though it was a busy July 4th weekend.

I am surprised to read reviews where people are critical of the service here. I found it to be very friendly from start to finish. Food was very good, large portions, prices were fair for the portions and quality. I would go back and would recommend - not fancy and don't go expecting a 5 star experience, but if you... More
