Delicious. This place is a hidden gem. Don't let the unassuming "strip mall" exterior appearance dissuade you. From our experience, the food and service has been fantastic. We discovered this place about 6 weeks ago and now try to frequent it as much as possible....Our favorite is the Nachos El Carbon. I love good Mexican food and can say that this is definitely top 5 within a 50 mile radius of Nashville. Definitely recommend.More

Met a buddy for an early supper and was greeted by the courteous staff. Chips and Pico were great and the tall Dos XX was cold and refreshing. I had enchilada supremes and was mildly disappointed. A portion of the food was scalding hot while...another area was cold. Maybe just an off day, but they can and have done better.More

Quick and good food in a friendly atmosphere. Many fast food places surround El Corral but this is much better.

I met my friend here for lunch. Staff was very friendly and efficient. The taco salad and nachos and salsa were all very good. It’s a good place to go for lunch.

Large serving for lunch, good flavor. Service slow at first, but improved greatly. Nice little stop while traveling. We Texans like our Mexican food.

The food is always TOPS...especially the Shrimp cocktail, the pollo loco, and the borracho (drunk😂 beans). It had been years since I had a really good, Texas-Mex Michelada: much like a bloody mary, but made with beer! This was like going back in time to...the goid ole' Texas Michelada days. Your choice of beer used. I recommend Negra Modelo 😉. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place!More

I used to like eating here until I found out that this restaurant was reusing left over sauce off of other customers tables.

The food was nicely spiced. Yet, not too hot. Perfect for my taste. Nice little place. Will definitely be back.

I always get the Shrimp Brochette. It is amazing. The Twister is a great combo of Margarita and Sangria. The staff are always attentive and friendly.

4 margaritas, 2 entrees and 1 order of queso dip for $28. How can you beat that? The food was excellent, probably the best place to eat in Gordonsville!

We stopped here on our way to Knoxville. It was a good find since they were not advertised on I-40E. We found the restaurant clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The chips and salsa was very tasty and our meals were very...good. We will definitely keep this on our list when passing by this way.More

Loved the fajitas. Queso dip was too expensive. Needed more seating room for Sunday lunch rush. Good dinner mints.
