Vegetarian Taco’s! We haven’t been to El Grill & Mexicano for some time. But it is nice to see they keep the level high. Fresh vegetables, crispy taco shells right out of the oven. Combined with an ice cold Corona beer, the best! Thank you...team El Grill & Mexicano.More

Went here in the Mambo beach center while staying at nearby resort. Good traditional Mexican food. Service not too too slow.

We tried this place base on reviews from other trip advisors and we were not disappointed. This was a great lunch. Lots of food. We could have shared our meals. My fiance had chicken tacos and they were piping hot. The pina coladas were the...best we have ever had. This place was so good with lots of options. The nachos and salsa were great. I'd definitely go back. 4 of us each with entrees, each with a beer and each had a pina colada plus 1 shared appetizer and it was $60 USD a couple.More

We had a large group that ate at this restaurant twice. They really missed the mark on simple requests and the drinks are not that great. I have an onion allergy and on both occasions my food came with raw onions despite me stressing to...the server that I can’t eat onions. So if you have a food allergy be very aware before eating here. Service is slow but it’s like that at every establishment along the boulevard.More

We go to this nice Mexican place every year. We miss this lovely shaded atmosphere, green bucket of Beer, hanging golden shrimp and little cute baskets of fries. Very special place. Smoking tables. Fast service. Reasonable price. Super ocean view. The best place to spend...a lovely evening with friends and family. Highly recommended to everyone.More

Nice place for nice food. Friendly people, who also take some time for some talk or having a laugh and explain some food.

We had a craving for Mexican food while we were away so we dropped in here one night for dinner. I got tacos that were delicious. My daughter got a quesadilla which was okay, and my husband got fajitas. Don't order mixed drinks--you may as...well order water because they water the drinks down so much. Desserts were great. Service was okay. They allow smoking in this restaurant, so be warned--the person next to you could be smoking and blowing large clouds of smoke into your daughter's face while she tries to eat.More

In general I would say it is good. Service is nice and food is good. If you sit at the side of the beach you have a nice view as well. They promote gluten free and know a lot about it. We did found out...after several visits that the spare ribs are not gluten free wile they said they are in teh beginning. So my wife and kids did not feel so well a couple of days and at the end we knew why. In general they really try to do good, but having an additional allergy menu would be better, especially as you promote to serve to people with allergies.More
