“A lot of food for a good price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Wife and I ate at the El Meson on South Emerson. I had a carne asada burrito and she had the fajitas. There was so much steak on my burrito that I thought I'd never get to the end of it. My wife had 3 tortilla shells of fajitas piled high and still hard enough left over where it looked like she hadn't even touched her food. The service was quick and the staff was friendly

“Good for larger groups”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

El Meson is located very close to my employer's building so we end up eating there quite often. They easily and quickly accommodate groups of any size. The food is fairly average, but good, and the service is quick. They have some very cheerful carved, painted chairs and booths. The atmosphere is nice. They apparently have a nightclub-like deal in the bar area, but I've never been to that part.

“Simply a Great Place - S. Emerson Ave location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

By far my wife's favorite Mexican restaurant. The fajitas are wonderful!
Like most restaurants of this type they have the # specials, but they also have a nice selection of more accurate Mexican meals. Try it out, prepare to wait if you head there on Fri, Sat night.
The restaurant can be loud and it may not be the best for special occasions, but they do have a section split off that could be used. Again, this is the Indianapolis South Emerson Avenue location.

“Above Average Mexican food with great flavor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

This is not your average Mexican restaurant in a strip mall. The food has a unique taste, with lots of flavor and spice, without being overpowering. The salsa is also quite good. My family of four was able to eat for $21, with waters to drink, and we all were stuffed. I like El Meson so much better than Little Mexico just down the street.
