I love El Faro for any red chili dish but especially their enchiladas or huevos rancheros for breakfast. I always get some red chili sauce to go so I can enjoy it at home. Great service, great coffee and eggs always perfectly cooked.

Had an early breakfast, good omelette and pancakes. Not extremely friendly server. Found out that at lunch and/ or dinner the restaurant did not have beer nor wine.

We ate here for lunch and it was delicious. There are not many options in T or C but this is a great spot for lunch. Good food, good service, well worth the price.

My colleague and I stopped in for lunch recently. The service was good, as were the tacos and the prices. The restaurant was nearly full with locals, which for me is always a good sign. We'll be back.
