“Good staff.. great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

El Mayor is one of my favorite Windsor restaurants
A mix of large booth and tables, the dining area is clean with a huge party room on one side, washrooms are spacious and clean, ample parking at the rear of the restaurant access through an alley.

Lunch or dinner there's enough on their menu to suit your taste. I enjoy their kebab dinner and fish platter. Hummus, tabbouleh, pita - are fresh and tasty. Their prices aren't the cheapest, but reasonable and after tasting the food you 'll know it's money well spent.
Last time I was there our food took longer than usual, but our server chatted with us for a while and passed the time and after our meal she was kind enough to pour a complimentary cup of coffee/espresso to diners.
Dine-in or takeout portions are plentiful, you'll leave with something to take home;
their busy staff always great you with smiles.
El Mayor - hard to disappoint.

“Really good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012

El Mayor is a little more reasonable than a couple of the other restaurants that serve the same kind of food. Nothing stands out really as exceptional, but I liked the turkish coffee after dinner.

“Value and taste”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2012

I've eaten lunch at El Mayor a couple of times and heve been quite pleased each time. The food is fresh, prepared well and served promptly by cheerful and knowledgeable staff. Each time there was a sample from the kitchen, and coffee served at the table - gratis. I recommend this restaurant.
