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.

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.

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.
