Each month I cater in lunch for about 60 people at the office. I hired El Taco Tote for our lunch in March. Everybody loved the food! The steak, chicken and shrimp tacos were delicious, as was everything else. I think they make their own...More

Come with an appetite and you will leave satisfied. I ordered the bruschetta platter and could not eat everything on my plate. The salsa bar is amazing with all the variety of salsas available. Try it... You'll like it!!!

Awesome little Mexican restaurant. Proper authentic Mexican, not TexMex. Some of those with more northern palates won't appreciate the beans and grains. I thought it was pretty good though. Tried the enchilada and burritos. Can't complain.
