We ordered 4 different items and loved them all. The guac is very good as well. I wish we had stopped earlier in the trip. We would definitely have done again!

El Mundo is one of those small, but amazing local places that is great to go to any time of any day if you're a native, but just one of those places you want to share with everyone from out of town! Grab a Chicken burrito as big as your head and wash it down with a ice cold Corona.

This is a small place but is big on great food and service. It was a nice stop for lunch for our day trip to Louisville. Everything was fresh, flavorful, and plenty of it!

My husband and I shared the combo plate!! It was amazing. My children had the quesadillas. Both equally amazing. The margaritas were so good, my husband and I had 2 each!!!. The food was fresh and delicious!!! Not to mention is was very affordable. A few items to note, the bathroom is upstairs, you have to go outside the restaurant,... More

Good food in an eclectic atmosphere and area. Food was good. Not out of this world but good. A good departure from the run of the mill Mexican Service good but not great

Fantastic food and service. The owner, Bea, sat down next to us and was super cool! It was like going to your family's restaurant. I would highly recommend it! Have Heather make you a margarita 🍸

Even after being in Louisville for awhile, I still hadn't been to El Mundo despite hearing it was a nice little hot spot. I'm glad I finally did because it was a great experience. We sat upstairs at the funky little bar. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful adding to the buzzing atmosphere. Their drinks were not... More

My husband and I are foodies and always love to try new restaurants. But, hands down, El Mundo is always our favorite. We have tried almost all the dishes and specials and have never been disappointed. Tonight we had the combo plate with chicken enchiladas, pork burrito, bison chile relleno. The mole sauce on the enchilada was far superior to... More

You have to be ok with closeness. The restaurant is very small and packs a crowd. Love the house margaritas and salmon quesadillas!

We came to El Mundo from a recommendation from a soccer coach and when we first got there were unsure of the place as it kind of seemed like a dive on Frankfort Avenue. However the food did not disappoint. Our favorite was the enchiladas and we have been twice. The only disappointment is the sodas are canned (I prefer... More
