We went here because of the reviews and they did not disappoint. They are so warm and friendly. Although it was our first time, we felt like long lost friends. Chips were good and not greasy and I love the fact that they have mild salsa. Bean & cheese dip was like everywhere else. Fajitas were awesome with more meat... More

Wow! We went with some friends, making a party of 8. We arrived around 6:15pm on a Saturday night which was good, because we were seated immediately. A half hour later there were at least 5 groups waiting for tables. The servers knew our friends (and several other guests) by name. I've got to say this was some of the... More

We are mexiholics!!!! If there's a Mexican restaurant any where in the upstate of sc, trust me I've been there. I've been to really great ones and really crappy ones. I can honestly say El Tejano gets my vote for best all around experience! The food is always fresh, always delicious and always consistent. The service is superior to every... More

We moved to Simpsonville last year. My co-worker told me about El Tejano but she calls it "hello sweeties" because of how caring and outgoing the owner, Rosie, is. The place is tucked away a bit in a shopping center. We love the food, atmosphere, and the way they make you feel! Very welcoming and a great place to take... More

The food was okay, but the bar uses mini-bottles, not free-pour. This raises the price of the drink without raising the quality. I will go to Anita's Mexican next time.

Great service and great food. The owner does a great job making the place have a small town family feel. Prices aren't bad either!

My family loves eating at Ek Tejanos. Rosie always welcomes us back like family. The chips and salsa are always fresh and replenished as often as we like. We've never had a bad meal. The service is the best in the business. We love our El Tenjaos family!

Rosie is always smiling and happy to see you when you walk in. The servers are bustling around with hot plates of fresh, delicious mexican food. The prices are very good. Great food, service and price. Certainly the best mexican food in simpsonville. What more could you want?
