This restaurant seems to be decidedly authentic in their Mexican cuisine... at least for as far north as Frostburg, MD is!

Portions were huge and our waitress was attentive. I would recommend you go here. We had dinner and were quite satisfied.

Sometimes one more Mexican restaurant is too many. El Canelo has proven to be the best in our area for many years. Freshest of all the ones in town. Great wait staff too.

The food at El Canelo is good - not the best I've ever had. It was also too hot inside. The A/C wasn't on so we were all sweating. Service was fair.
