Service is very good. The food is average and the margaritas are too sweet. I had the tamale and enchilada combo. The tortillas were not homemade.

The service is good, the staff are friendly and polite but the food is subpar. Nothing extraordinary to write about, greasy and lacking flavor.

Small and cozy but lacks charm. Service is quick and friendly but food is unremarkable. Huge menu choice. I recommend the Chimichanga. They do have a liquor license - margaritas are good.

" I promise You" was what out hostess said when asked if we would like an item on the menu. She was right. The food was authentic and very good.

Convenient to The Heron and Wild Iris B&Bs. Nothing noteworthy, but nothing wrong with it either, if you're in the mood for Mexican.

i was delighted with El Gitano on my trips to LA Conner, from the complementary chips and salsa, the songs from the young men in the kitchen and the really good food. My waiter told me that all the staff are students from Mexico who are going to school locally and spoke highly of his boss, he told me about... More
