Delicious food, friendly service. Fun, fast and affordable! Anyplace that gives me free dessert and appetizer gets my vote!

We were instantly greeted with warm smiles at the door and decided to opt for outdoor patio seating on their spacious shaded patio. The look I did get of the inside was very impressive as well. Our waitress Tara immediately introduced herself and took our drink orders. There is a decent selection of bottled Mexican beers and a very nice... More

Stopped for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Food presentation was good, tasty, plentiful and reasonably priced. Free shot of Tequilla if you so desire.

The staff is on the ball. From the gratis cheese tortilla thru the meal, you will get large portions and low prices.

Totally casual atmosphere, warm friendly staff, the menu is well laid out, lots og good options, greeted by a complimentary quesadilla, chips and salsa at the start of the meal, and a complimentary banana chimichanga for dessert. Great option out of the busy hubbub of Broadway.

My husband and I enjoyed our meal, especially the pitcher of margaritas. Last year, we tried Cantina and were really disappointed. El Mexicano was lively, great wait staff, good food. We will be back.

We enjoyed this restaurant as the wait staff was terrific, prices were reasonable and it has a nice casual dining area. I am not a Mexican food expert but I thought the food tasted very good. I would definitely re-visit!

This used to be a reliable, if overpriced ,eatery that we visited every month . The last two times we ate here the quality of the food had gone down and the prices had gone up. The sangria was so watery it might have been Kool-Aid. On the plus side ,you are offered a free dessert and, sometimes a shot... More

Not only did we get chips and salsa, but a small quesadilla, a fried plantain with caramel sauce and whipped cream, but a parting shot of tequila! I ordered a combo plate for $15 that already had more than I could eat, the rest came along with dinner order. The service was good. Empty plates were gone immediately and the... More

Not authentic Mexican at all. Very Americanized. What Mexican family puts carrots and peas in rice?? El Mariachi in Albany tastes waaaaay better and is more authentic!
