Nothing special, just classic Mexican food. Not TexMex or Santa F3 Mex, just normal, good Mexican. Priced right, good ingredients, good potions. Good place for a Mexican food fix.

Really good taco's, decent margarita's. If I compare El Indio's taco's to my favorite spot where I live, I'd say the overall taste of my spot was a little better, but I could tell El Indio's meat was better/higher quality. Our server, Reyna, was good.

The staff is always cheerful and the food is always very good. Even my wife (who doesn't like spicey food) loves the place. I can't talk about Margareta (sp?) as I don't drink. Best of all, great food at very reasonable prices.

We have tried many Mexican restraunts in the area. We liked this one. The salsa was good. 2. We tried the chicken fajitas, chimichangas, and tostitos. They were all very good. Prices were average for the area. Suggest you try it out.

We stopped here on a whim, looking once again for a great taco. I got several varieties, all to-go and ate them with my wife at home. They were ordinary and that's all I can say about them. No need to go back. You can...More

The food is not bad, but we were not impressed either. They close at 10 and we arrived around 925. We were seated all the way in the back in a corner behind a wall so that we were far away from the staff who...More

So, for several years now I have been frequenting this restaurant. It had become one of my favorites until my most previous visit. We had just finished our meal (myself and my four kids) and had just received our receipt for paying the bill when...More

On this trip to the USA I have had several Mexican meals to make up for a year of deprivation in Europe and India. This is the best one yet. Fresh ingredients that are perfectly prepared for a delicate and delicious late lunch. The setting...More
