Great food and great service. Very generous portions and as good Mexican food as I have ever had, at any price.

“Never had a bad meal here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Hillsdale doesn't have many restaurants, and this one is one of the better restaurants in town, so we've been here multiple times. The service is good, but the thing that keeps us coming back is the food. When I say that I've never had a bad meal here, I mean it. The quality of the food is consistently very good. The free chips and salsa that come with any order are quite addictive, so you may want to watch yourself, or you won't want your meal! And then you'd be missing the best part. The meals are are all very tasty and, at least to my experience, authentic (though I haven't been to too many Mexican restaurants). Some of my personal favorites include the tamales, which are rich and delicious, and the fajitas, in which the meat and vegetables are delivered fresh and sizzling in their own skillet, with the tortillas and toppings on the side. Speaking of sides, the rice and beans which come with many of the meals are also very good. Prices are very reasonable, with most meals costing less than $10.00, and many are big enough for me to take home part of them for leftovers.

Overall, we have thoroughly enjoyed our many meals at El Cerritos, and will hopefully enjoy many more in the future!

“Decent small-town mexican food. Nice staff. Good prices.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2011

About what you would expect for a small-town Mexican restaurant. I'd say on the up-side of average.
