Our first experience with El Tejano yesterday was pretty good. We were quickly seated and given chips and salsa. Our drinks were not far behind. We would have ordered an appetizer sooner but they were a bit slow but not bad. We thought the cheese and spinach dip sounded good so for a change we tried this instead of the... More

On the rare occasions my wife and I can get out (we have 2 small children), we almost always go to EL Tejano in Simpsonville. If you're looking for a local place that has excellent mexican food, fun margaritas, but also a family friendly atmosphere, this is it! The prices are reasonable and Rosie will always make you feel right... More

This place has it all. Great food, freshly prepared, an amazing greeting by the lovely Rosie, and excellent service. This is really what a restaurant should be, the service is great, as soon as you are seated you have warm chips and salsa, medium or mild, and your drink order is taken. Drinks are refreshed without asking, and the food... More

Rosie & her team create an at home meal w/family. THE BEST Mexican restaurant in the Upstate! I highly recommend you to visit El TEJANO, excellent salsa homemade family recipe.

This place is more traditional Mexican restaurant rather than tex mex. The owners are genuinely friendly as well as staff. We like their burritos and the prices are very reasonable. The only thing that's not my favorite is their salsa. I like more of a chopped pico and this is more of a mild sauce. Otherwise we like this restaurant... More

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.
