The staff are friendly and service is fast. Food is good, not great. Salsa is excellent and chips are always fresh tasting.

Took the family here last night and I really enjoyed it. The Chile Rellano on my combination plat was excellent! Texas Margaritas have Cuervo Gold and Grand Marnier for very smooth libation. Dos Equis Amber is on tap. Be sure to try the homemade hot sauce - red or green. I preferred the green

El Norteno became the high school hang out after high school events . Both parents and kids could go and either sit together or be in seperate rooms. They can handle a crowd!!

The food and service at El Norteno are reliable - in a very good way. The food quality and value are very good and the service is excellent. How the one server carries all those hot dishes on his arm still amazes me - that is quite a sight to see. We always try to have at least one meal... More

I go all the time! It is really good! Pollo Ranchero is out of this world. Ask for the homeade fresh avocado dip. Not on the menu and made by Leon's wife. Leon has Los Norteno in Collinsville VA just a few miles north on US220 business. They are sticklers for quality and consistency.

Great fajitas. Try to go on the nights they have the Mariachi Band as they are very fun and will take requests. Good service and fun atmosphere.
