When I'm in Conway we almost always stop here. Great food, excellent service. Very clean and wide open. We call it the "El Cerro Super Store" because it's the loveliest of all the locations.

They cook the best Mexican in town. Love their grilled shrimp fajitas. The portions are huge. Hard to get away without getting your fill. The chips and salsa are great and the main entrees are even better.

Had dinner here last night. Not even remotely impressed. I had a sampler type dinner that had several items on it. Since when is it that a Mexican restaurant doesn't season their beef, chicken, and pork with Mexican seasonings? These were the poorest Mexican dishes we have had in quite some time. This is also home to the slowest bartender... More

Our trip to El Cerro in Conway, SC was great!!! There was no long wait time and chips and salsa were served immediately as we were seated!!! We ordered from the extensive lunch menu. As an appetizer, we ordered the creamy cheese dip!!!! The entrees of shrimp fajitas and chimichangas were fabulous!!! Each dish was served with refried beans, rice,... More

A colleague and I were in town for the night and, unbeknownst to us, all of the seafood places in Myrtle Beach are closed during the winter. All of them. So we ended up at El Cerro Grande for the standard tex mex and margaritas. It definitely fit the need and I'd most likely be a regular if I lived... More

Their service is good. Their food is very dependable, tasting the same from time to time which I like. They can vary the seasoning if you ask. They have some staff that has been there a long time and they are top notch.

Food was actually very good for the money. Service was not very good thats the only reason for not getting 5 stars. Seemed very clean and comfortable atmosphere. I would recommend this to you if you like Mexican food.

I absolutely love coming here. The food is always fresh and the waiters are very polite and prompt. Free chips and salsa and free refills on them both. My favorite dish is the chicken alambre which is chicken cooked with green & red peppers & onions and topped with a melted white cheese, also served with rice or beans and... More

Ordered the lunch special Speedy Gonzales which consists of hard or soft ground beef taco (in my case soft), a beef enchilada and refried beans. Have ordered this MANY times over the years and always enjoyed. This is the 2nd time I've ordered from this location the exact same menu item and both times it has been tasteless as well... More
