We had someone in our party that wanted Mexican food, so we picked El Mazatlan after reading the reviews. I double checked the address to make sure that where we ate was where was being reviewed. It was the most tasteless Mexican food I have ever eaten. The ground beef was gummy/gooey -- and had no seasoning. The salsa and... More

This is an upscale Mexican restaurant that has a bueatiful interior and a good chef that seasons the food very well. Everything I have eaten here has been above all the other Mexican restaurants in Bowling Green and the workers are freindly with attention to detail and quick service all starting with the greeter. Overall a very good place to... More

Best meal and service! Waitress was very attentive. My husband had very specific instructions for his order and it came exactly as he ordered. Food was fresh, hot and plentiful!

while staying in Bowling Green, we were in the mood for some mexican food. On a chance, after seeing the parking lot pretty full, figured the food had to be pretty good. As soon as we entered we were greeted by a smiling friendly hostess, who led us to our table, and quickly recieved our first round of drinks and... More

Stopped for lunch and had a very nice meal. Menu is different than so many of the Mexican joints that have opened in the last 10 years. Will visit again.

The food is always good here and the service consistently excellent. You are provided with free chips and dip when seated even though the wait on your food will never be very long. I think the longest I ever waited for my food to arrive at the table was about 10-15min and that was with a nearly full house. The... More

The chimichangas were on point. The nacho maker on display was quite interesting. Food was good and drinks were good.

Chips were warm and tasty with good dipping sauce. Entree was another matter. Rice and beans were room temperature--terrible! Shrimp chimichanga was 5% shrimp, 90% onions and peppers, and 5% other. Fortunately, it was warm. Overall El Mazatlan is pretty typical. Servers deliver the food with a warning that everything is scorching hot, and it almost always comes out room... More

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants in Bowling Green, for sure. The waiters are always friendly, and the menu is reasonably priced.
