We had the lunch chicken fajitas. Quantity was more than adequate, though we did not take home extras. There should be more salad with the entree but it’s still a good choice. The platters are well presented and the flavors are pleasant. Chips are fresh,...More

Consistently good Americanized Mexican food, nice prices on entrees and margaritas. They need to pay attention to their background music (this is the Village), but overall always a quality experience.

I haven't been to this restaurant in a while. Great wait staff and the food was very good. Salsa is a little hotter than I like, but it didn't stop me fron eating lots of chips.

The food was some of the best Mexican food we've had in a long time. The restaurant was clean and quiet. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. Very reasonable prices. A place you must dine at if visiting Hot Springs!

Large menu and good food. Service quality can vary. Tuesday nights will get you $1.99 Margaritas and a reduced price second entree. You might even get live music.

If you like Mexican, you will like El Padrino in HSV. The food is great as well as the service and if you come on your birthday, you get a FREE meal.
