Good Old Fashion Mexican

Great place to get Chile Rellenos. They make it from scratch so you will wait a little longer than some mexican restaurants, but you won't find any better. They have a number of combination platters and they are all tasty. This has not gone to their head. A family run business, for a number of... read more

This little family run restaurant is in Bayview. Everything is made to order and delicious! Just wish they would do something with their a/c unit and hire more servers. They really do have good food, but sometimes the wait is a bit much.

We were on our way home after a long day on the "mainland" and just wanted a quick, easy, inexpensive dinner. The chips were fresh & crispy, with a delicious salsa. It's a good thing they charge for the second basket, because we didn't need to eat more chips, but definitely would have devoured them, if they'd been complimentary. We... More

The best thing they do is the Guacamole, made right at your table - yum! I have been trying to duplicate it at home ever since! Good, basic Mexican food, served with a smile. You can see they also do lots of takeout, so it must be a local favorite. In one three day trip, we ate there twice!

The owners are very nice. We go there often and are always treated like amigos. I like real Mexican food without all the Americanizing. I especially like the Enchilada de Chipotle and the Enchilada de Mole. The beans are plain and tasty.

Nothing fancy, just good, tasty and authentic mexican food, delivered by very friendly staff. Try any one of the specialties, they are all good.

This is one of those places where the people are friendly, and seem to want to do good job, but just don't know how to. When I sat down for dinner, at 6pm, at a mostly empty restaurant, I was pleased that chips and salsa were promptly delivered. The server promptly took my order of carnitas rancheras and a beer....

I've been visiting El Corral off and on for 20+ years, and I have to say the food keeps getting better and better. While it would be nice to see some updated decor, the food that comes out of their newly remodeled kitchen is incredible. I usually stick to Enchiladas at Mexican places, because if they screw them up then... More

We like the El Corral Special with chicken. It's consistently good and inexpensive. A whole meal on a single plate. My son says they make the best nachos around. The atmosphere feels like a Mexican place--definitely south of the border.

Homemade sauces make the dishes that the owner serves with pride... the secret... some of the best tamales around! The atmosphere leaves a little to be desired but the food is good and a fair price.
