I'll be honest, I am a Taq Mexico fan but I stopped in El Amigo today for lunch and they won me over, my new taco spot. I got the #5, four tacos and a drink for $9. Can't beat that and I gotta say...More

This place has great tamales and tacos. Beef and fish tacos were best. The atmosphere isn't great, but so what. The food is good

This place produced the worst authentic Mexican tacos I've ever had. Stale, greasy, burnt chips. Stale corn tortillas Overlooked, almost flavorless,low quality meat. Salsa was good. Service was terrible.

Average Mexican - fast food & take out. Average Prices. Small seating area. Limited menu. Ok for a quick "craving" for Mexican!

Serves authentic Mexican Food made to order. Staff is friendly and accommodating. If you get a take-out menu, you can call a head of time and actually pick up fresh food from their take-out window-can't get more convenient than that. A Must Try!

This small, very casual restaurant on Wallingford's busy North Colony Road offers the best of Mexican country cuisine. Open for lunch (and maybe more, not sure), there are always plenty of Mexican folks there enjoying a delicious meal--indicating its authenticity. Booths and tables are more...More

Found this new spot for Mexican food - they have tables to sit down, or they can do take-out. Place is owned by two Mexican families who prepare all the food on site. Everything is authentic, right down to the home-made salsas (four are served...More
