Typical Mexican restaurant

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

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
