Honesty Department: Our first visit. Findings are preliminary. Pros: Simple, authentic tacos. Large, heavy drinking glasses. Good salsa. Prompt, courteous service. Not afraid to make some things, like beans and some tacos, hot. Cons: Complex dishes like enchiladas poblanos were simplified. The flavor was a bit shallow. Verdict : Will go again. Basics like salsa, tacos, drinks are very solid.... More

We've been here a few times, and ordered take-out a couple. The food has been delicious, and delightfully presented each time. So nice to find terrific Mexican food so close to our abode! Not sure what to recommend, as everything we have tried thus far has been yummy! And I would be remiss if I did not mention the service... More

Stopped by after work wanting a quick meal to take back to the hotel. Wanting a burrito, was recommended a burrito fajitas, with refried beans, also ordered a side of rice. Waiter said about 5 minutes. Have to say 5 minutes was an overestimate, I was back on the road in less than 5 minutes. Vegetables were crisp and not... More

The food and pricing are fairly routine for any Mexican place around here. The drinks are absolutely amazing, best marg in town! Highly recommend the authentic tacos!

The food is excellent and so is the service, great atmosphere. And the margaritas were terrific. The fried ice cream was disappointing, having been previously fried and returned to the freezer. Still, an excellent dinner and a place we'll come back to.

Enjoyed a quick dinner traveling from Tennessee to Maryland. Food was good and the portions perfect sized. The side salad was delicious- it didn't even need dressing.

While I don't really miss California or Texas, I do miss good Mexican food! Happy me, there are now three restaurants in the area to satisfy the craving! El Bronco is a family run jewel that serves delicious traditional items. The chips are crispy and the salsa has just enough bite for this "gringa." (And what's with the mayo white... More
