Good local place

This is our go to Mexican place. Food is good, friendly service and reasonable prices. We are regulars here. Nice mix of standard Mexican (tacos, fajitas, burritos) and different items from South American counties. One night the waitress recommended the beef tongue fish - hubby said it was... read more

Food is mostly ok. salsa does not taste fresh but it's fine. I ordered the hidalgo burrito it was ok, good size and good taste but I find it expensive compared to other places. Place is small. It takes a looong time to get the food, also the check, maybe they need more servers? I'll probably go again but it's... More

Our recent meal was nothing special. The service was good. I'm not sure if the salsa is house made. I think they may add a few fresh ingredients to a packaged salsa. The only fruit in my sangria was lemon. Our meals were small portions, not what I expect with a Mexican meal. I don't think I received a full... More

We've dined here a few times before, and have found it a little disappointing overall. It's convenient to our neighborhood, and we've never had to wait for a table, even on weekends. Food is okay but not better than the chains of Tex-Mex fare in the area and fairly expensive for what it is. Our server was attentive, but not... More

The food here is wonderful . I haven't had anything I didn't like. Its in a small strip center with a couple other places to eat. If you like Mexican food, this is perfect for you.

The El Hidalgo burrito is delicious and the Corona light is always cold! Love hanging out with friends here!

We arrived at El Hidalgo at 6:56 on a Friday. I know because we had made reservations and I checked my watch as we went in. We ordered margaritas, and when the waitress returned with our waters, we ordered our entrees. Those arrived shortly after 7:45, only after I asked the head waiter to check on them. The enchiladas Jalisco... More

This small restaurant can fill your craving for Mexican if you dont want to go our of your way. The service was slow considering there were not many patrons there on a weekday but it was tasty!!! The portions are just right...you'll leave full but not enough to take home a doggie bag.

This restaurant serves high quality food, with love. The Tilapia dish is delish. The atmosphere is fun. The servers/owners are super friendly. Location is good, near The Giant and Holiday Inn off 100/103. They have unique appetizers and even vegetarian options. Go spend a b-day there and wear a sombrero!
