“Beef Tip Tacos & Choripollo dish are killer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Family of 5 on a busy Friday night. Wait time was a bit log, as their notification system was malfunctioning, but the hostess was most gracious and aware of the situation and sat us immediately. Genuinely original menu (not the usual typical Tex-Mex Speedy Gonzales and Lunches #1-25 listings). You never have to ask for chips refills, they bring them to table. Salsa is good w/ strong flavors of cilantro *yummy*

Small orders (appetites) are accommodated w/ small plate items (Beef Tip Tacos) and a side of Guacamole that was for me a meal.

My two young kids split the Choripollo... a chicken dish covered with Chorizo sausage and cheese w/ side of beans and rice. The beans were head and shoulders above what you would normally be served. And the rice was a mix of flavors and seasonings and chunks of tomato and peppers. That had to be one of the best ''special'' items on the menu.

For this type of casual dining, a true upscale Mexican Restaurant w/ prices reflecting a good deal... the Saleeby Scale has to be a 8/10.

“Best Mexican food in South Carolina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

I'm a local and I can't say enough about this place!!! We went about two weeks ago & we've found a new favorite, the service was second to none, atmosphere great, food OUTSTANDING, the prices were good, and portions are huge, we had dinner for two along with beverages & dessert, surprisingly it was very easy on the wallet. I really can't say enough good about El Cerro Grande the decor is beautiful and relaxing along with a large restaurant theres also a Cantina. There are also TV's throughout the place so you won't miss the game or a race!!! Great for families or just a place to stop off after work. Definately one of the best kept secrets of the Conway/Myrtle Beach area.
