We went for a scenic drive and came across El Rey Café at lunchtime. It didn't look too busy, but when we got inside the place was packed. We had lunch and the food was very good. We aren't experts on real Mexican food, but...More

We sat outside on a beautiful day. The service was excellent. The fresh chips and salsa were addictive. The tacos, enchiladas and beans and rice were yummy. I wasn't crazy about my chile relleno, as the eggy coating was quite thick.

This place was the filthy. My wife and I sat down and were given chips and salsa. We looked around and couldn't believe how dirty the floor and walls were. We left before ordering.

Libby's El Rey Cafe is closed. Surrounded by a chain link fence. Perhaps as some naysayers might say, to keep the vermin in, but it was a place unlike any other, and will be missed. 20 years of grime? Absolutely. Greasy chips? Buttered. Low prices?...More

I rated the atmosphere as average just because I could not decided between awful and great. The charm of the place is based partly on its dumpiness, but it is clean and none of the broken bits got in the way. The food is generally...More

Walked in on what seemed to be arguing or tension between the two waitresses. Recieved the most greasy chips I've ever seen, which turned us off but later found out it was butter poured over them?? There appeared to be 20 year's worth of grime...More
