“Never let's us down!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We go to El Rey all the time and it is consistently good. They have no trouble customizing your order. The Fajitas and shrimp quesadilla are among our favorites! Great food, reasonably priced, wonderful atmosphere...what's not to like?

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

I have eaten here several times. I wish the salsa was spicy hot and the fresh jalapeños were hot, but I realize that most Mexican restaurants in America cater towards non-spicy food. Their food and margaritas are good and we usually switch up between this restaurant and a different mexican restaurant Jasper, GA.
