My family really likes this restaurant. We come about once a month, but it’s so cold in the restaurant. If we know we are coming, my husband, 4 kids, and I literally change clothes and grab jackets to wear. We like the food and service,...More

Both times I’ve been to El Puente I’ve really enjoyed it. I had a cheese enchilada and a steak quesadilla the last time. The a la carte options make this restaurant more affordable than other similar ones.

As transplants from Texas, we desperately miss good Tex-Mex. The very best option in this area is El Puente in Nixa, which we think is better than its sister location in Springfield. We enjoy the Enchiladas Verde, the Fajita Steak Nachos, and the King Burrito....More

El Puente in Nixa is the best! The Mexican food is authentic and the service is great. Great after church restaurant even though it is usually packed. They give great service even when it is super busy.

Ever since this restaurant moved to this new location the food has been great. Friendly staff. Decent prices. Large crowd does not mean a long wait, this place is huge. Tonight was busy and the acceptable time until the food came out was worth it....More
