Called into this place on a whim. I've always loved Mexican food and I'm pleased to say it did not disappoint. The staff were extremely friendly and our waiter was superb. The food was excellent and authentic. I was surprised when the bill arrived as I initially thought they had missed off some of the food. It was really reasonably... More

We had a delightful visit with Natalie, the student from Colombia living and working in Myrtle Beach for the summer. I wanted to like the food, but really I didn't enjoy the greasy, run-of-the mill Mexican food. If you would miss the fresh greens, tomatoes etc. as much as I did, you could do better somewhere else.

Outstanding authentic Mexican food. We came here because it was 7pm Saturday, with no reservations, a hungry family and traffic was jacked up. El Cerro Grande happened to be right there. What a great stroke of luck. The food was excellent. we haven't had better Mexican entrees. My wife got a pork chimichanga and I got the cowboy chimichanga. I... More

Good Mexican food every time. Always busy and can be a wait time after five. Very popular among the local Hispanic community with their families. Burritos enchiladas fish tacos very good and come with the beans rice salsa. Chips and salsa in the beginning are ok salsa runny. We go every year for a good meal and not a lot... More

This restaurant is terrific. Wide variety of items on the menu. Service is very good and the food is even better. We were there on a Monday night and it was so good we went back again on Wednesday. Would recommend to anyone that enjoys Mexican cuisine b

The food wasn't great, on the expensive side and didn't taste or look like authentic mexican food. Had to keep asking for refills, never got extra napkins, clumpy cheese dip, dried out burritos, guacamole dip had a half avocado in it....just not a great experience.

We had a hankering for some Mexican food so headed along to El Cerro Grande this past weekend. The food was delicious and reasonably priced, our server was polite, friendly and very accommodating. The only minor drawbacks were that it took a little while before our server got to our table and the hand towel dispenser in the bathroom didn't... More
