“Great Mexican!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

On a weekend get-away, staying in Arcadia from Fort Myers. Had a wonderful dinner. My husband and I both liked our combo plates. The chips before we're really good too.

“Best pork ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

El Pirata is not much to look at. Small, old restaurant but I had the best pork I have ever eaten here. The Carnitas Dinner was pork tips, rice, beans and guacamole salad. All very good but the pork tips were exceptional! So tender and flavorful I wanted to go back the next night! My husband had the macho burrito. Said it was good. The beef was on one end and the beans on the other. Out daughter had beef and chicken tacos. She liked both. Dinners from $6.00 and up. Dinner for the three of us under $35.00. Definitely worth a visit!!

“One of the best Mexican Restaurants in Florida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

I've been all across the state, and this is one of the top two Mexican restaurants that I've eaten at in Florida. Whenever I am in town, I make it a point to eat here and have never been disappointed. This visit was no different. The food was excellent and the service fast and courteous. Prices are very reasonable. Our drinks barely made it to halfway before they were topped off. The atmosphere is casual and nice, nothing special. I've had a few different entrees, but the carnitas really stand out.

Ate here visiting family. The rodeo was intown, so they were busy. Service was a little off. But, the chicken fajita was really good!
