Very good but not a lot of choices for little kids

I like the food and it's very consistent. The staff is very nice. My young kids (3/5) don't care or the kids menu that much. Outside of that, we go often

Our family loves it here. The waitstaff clearly work hard and together. Even when busy El Tejano runs like a well oiled machine. The restaurant is always clean and the food is always tastey. El Tejano is certainly not fine dining but it is good food at a good price.

While the owners are sweet, the food is pretty blah. Had a tostada and it was no better than anything I could make. There are so many better options for Mexican in the area.

Just passing thru the area and wanted some Mexican food. We were not disappointed. Greeted warmly upon entering restaurant. Sweet lady behind the counter. Seated almost immediately. Good thing we went early as after we got there, it got busy. We had the fajitas (wife shrimp and me the shrimp beef and chicken) Excellent. Chips and salsa were good and... More

We've dined here a couple of times. The food is always good and served quickly. There's usually a line so that should mean it's good. Overall I would recommend this place if you're looking for quick, inexpensive Mexican food.

I recommend only for lunch as they are very friendly and expedient as well as extremely cheap, the only real negative coming from less desirable menu items, tacos, fajitas and queso are all great, empanadas, chimichangas, and some others are not very good. 50/50 for quality

This is a family owned Mexican restaurant that always has a family atmosphere. In my opinion the best Mexican food for miles around. Such a pleasure to enjoy a great meal served by a great wait staff while listening to the owner Rosie greet and welcome each guest as they enter. Just makes you feel like a family gathering. I...

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
