About
Tequila! Salsa! Amigos! Fiesta! A real Mexican adventure you’ll never forget. In EL Popo the atmosphere is the most important. In the evenings it is particularly hot here: amused guests order another round of tequila rapido and margarita, waitresses carry sizzling dishes of fajita and garlic prawns. And hot Latin music played by swarthy Mexican Mariachis gives rhythm to the hustle and bustle ambience.

The food was amazingly good, a bit spicy for my taste( imagine I don’t eat spicy at all). The dessert( crepas con cajeta) was absolutely delicious. Only superlative words about this restautant! The only downside was the prices, it was a bit pricy( we paid...almost 30 euros for 2 meals, a dessert and 2 beers).More

Me and my friends had a wonderful time yesterday at El Popo! Delicious food (highly recommend vegetarian fajita and guacamole) Staff was really nice, our lovely waitress Sabrina brought me a piece of cake because of my birthday (I have never received something for free...in any restaurant) If you like live-music this the place you definitely need to visit! All tables were disinfected regularly and staff was wearing masks.More

Simple, but adequate menu which features Tex Mex basics. The chicken quesadillas were prepared with a lot of coriander and a good ratio of chicken and cheese. They had a pleasant taste. The frozen mango margarita had a strong taste of alcohol (too strong) and...was overpriced at 49 zloty. The beer was fairly priced. The chips and salsa were good. Service was average.More

Very busy, 9.30 Friday night. Service was ok, margaritas were plentiful, huge portion, lacked flavour and western prices. Neither the burritos or fajitas were exciting.

I had a fajita de res and the meat was tasteless, the tortillas are not from maiz but from white flour, not nice. The margarita was warm (no crushed ice) so it was more like a limonada with a slight aroma to tequila. Worst experience...in my life. But the place was cute, I will give them that.More

The best Mexican I’ve had in Europe. I got the beef burrito “very spicy” and I was not disappointed. I was sweating a little bit but damn did I enjoy every single bite. We also got margaritas that were strong yet tasty. The prices were...ok, the service was good, and the atmosphere was vibrant.More

Let me first assure you that the food here was delicious. Tortillas were the only but significant downside to my visit. It turned out they serve the lowest quality, store-bought tortillas. Everyone who tried them knows how bad they are. A gummy texture makes them...hard to bite and plenty of artificial ingredients are certainly not good for health. I’m trying to understand what is so difficult in making real tortillas that they have decided to serve the fake ones? Mexican cuisine consists of fresh and authentic ingredients. Thus, such practices are unacceptable. What is even weirder is that they serve homemade tortillas but just with one dish. Moreover, only two tortillas come with fajitas which are not enough. You have to ask for more. The prices are high but that’s expected for such a location. In conclusion, the place could be much better and I hope they will adjust their menu soon.More

Thank you for appreciating our food. It is great to hear it is delicious. However I feel bad that we disappointed you so much with our tortillas that you gave as only 3 points out of 5. It is true that some tortillas we make...More
