My husband loves their chili rellenos and my favorites are the taquitos Mexicans - so large a dinner I always take some home!

This is a good little Mexican restaurant by Kroger off highway 72. We have been there twice and enjoyed the food both times. The service was a little better the first time, but overall it is a good place to eat.

There's not a lot of difference in most Mexican restaurants, but El Omeca manages to consistently stay above the rest. The food is fresh and tasty, and the salsa is excellent.

We do not visit too many Mexican restaurants as we can't take hot and spicy food. The food here was not hot or spicy and tasted very good. I wish we had this chain in Missouri where we live. I would go to this restaurant...More

We have taken out of town guests who agree that El Omeca is far above any other Mexican restaurant in Huntsville. Our favorite server is Juan and everything we've had is Great. Tonight I had a tamale, Chile Rellenos and the new Gringa and it...More
