a wide variety of choices both traditional and innovative for lunch and dinner. A good place for meeting up with friends or celebrating a nice dinner with family. Not a first choice for a romantic dinner, but good family atmostphere.

This is our 2nd visit to El Lago. We love the warm, thin chips & the delicious mild salsa. We ordered the Fajitas for 2 which easily fed 3 adults . Highly recommend & we'll be going back for sure.
