“Overated Mexican”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We were told by lots of locals to eat here but it was pretty bland. Salsa is my favorite food and it was pretty lame.

“Authentic and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

We enjoyed our supper here and as it was walking distance from here to our hotel, I was able to indulge and have a drink with supper. I like good 'Mexican' food and this restaurant delivered good food and good service - try it out.

“Very nice oasis from the heat wave!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

Stopped for lunch and the atmosphere is great the food was average. Ok to clarify the nachos el mirador were very blah but the chicken salad was wonderful!

“Dinner at El Mirador”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

I love Mexican food, however, while the service was good, both my wife and I found our chicken dishes very bland as the chicken itself had little to no seasoning or spice.

More food than one can possibly eat. Cheesy and great, great flavors. Service was just as wonderful. Prices are very affordable.
