Enjoyed the seafood fajitas - shrimp, scallops, fish. Good stuff. Family friendly. Deserves to be busier, but don't miss the crowds.

Pulled into the parking lot and almost pulled out before going in because it looked too empty to be delicious. SO GLAD WE DIDN'T! The service was quick, from the time we were seated to the time we were served. The staff was on top of beverage refills and the chips and salsa while we were waiting were delicious ....... More

We were walk-ins into this restaurant and were pleased with the service and the authentic Mexican - all at a good price. The enchiladas and burritos were very good as were the nacho chips and the Mexican beer. Plus, it was quiet and the waiters were attentive and thorough. Best Mexican I've had in the area.

This is a new location for El Cerro and it is very pretty, lots of atmosphere, friendly waite staff and excellent food. Check it out. Get off the beach drag and have a great lunch or dinner, you won't regret it.

We had a party of eight for a belated birthday celebration. Food was pretty good, no particular complaints other than I like a bit more heat in mine. The rest of the family was happy with their dishes. Service was poor. Server was more interested in impressing us with her sense of humor than actually listening. Failed to get drink... More

Mexican food without the benefit of Chiles or onion. We ordered 3 different dishes and all were "flat". Burritos came with spaghetti sauce on them!

We always enjoy Mexican in any town and search for a new experience, especially away from the commercialized Tex-Mex restaurants. The enchiladas here are delicious as well as carnitas. We stopped for lunch. We thought $6.50 was too costly just for the Speedy Gonzales, even though it was flavorful. Friendly staff and quick food delivery.
