I like the restaurant on 544 better than the one in Garden City. I ate at the Garden City Restaurant yesterday. The waiters are very young and energetic, but too much so. They snatched my plate away and I wasn't even done eating. I put down my fork and was chewing and the waiter put a dirty empty plate over... More

I usually eat at the ones in south Myrtle or Garden City but what a great value and tasty layout of wide selections for south of the B. Love it but go hungry!

OK so, First off - Don't let the building fool you. It's ugly. They are waiting for the lease to renew to remodel - .... That's what they said. Facts: The food is good. Always - every week. There is free wifi. There is beer. The service is excellent - servers are always friendly and try to make sure you... More

Ordered the Chimichanga and received a tiny roll about the size of a Taquito. Have never seen a Chimi that small at any Mexican restaurant, they are normally about the same size as a Burrito. Felt really ripped off by this business, will not return!

One word delicious. Fantastic food and a great experience. Selection of food is outstanding. Price is extremely reasonable. Words alone can't do justice for how wonderful this restaurant is. If you enjoy Mexican food you fave got to try El Cerro Grande.

Unassuming even ordinary exterior. You walk inside and it looks like a family restaurant and at first glance nothing to write home about. Then you notice most of the patrons are Latino families and you figure it must be good. Wait till you order! Friendly service and explanations. EVERYTHING is good, plentifull, tasty and fresh. We wanted a good Mexican... More

Average Mexican Fare with good service. Salsa good, ask for the hot stuff too. Chips not so good. Carne Asada very good, authentic with a large roasted jalepeno. Diablo shrimp hot, but needed the special hot salsa. Sangria and beer fair price. Flan for dessert was excellent. Won't go home hungry.
