“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

The food is good, although it's a little expensive for what it is. Beautiful view and good ambiance.

“Awesome place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

For such a small restaurant, I was not expecting anything great when we showed up with 15 people. They went above and beyond! John was incredibly commodating and welcoming. The atmosphere is great, and the food and drinks are even better. The chips are homemade, which is a very nice touch. I had chicken fajitas, which were delicious, and chimpanzee, which was quite strong yet tasty. If you are reading this John and/or staff of El Picante, thanks for the fantastic service!

“Food Great! Bathrooms even better!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

Seriously the food was great. The manager was awesome and friendly and our #1 reason for loving this place...CLEAN SPACIOUS AND WONDERFUL BATHROOM! Wish we would have found this place the first day and we would have used that bathroom there all the time instead of our crappy hotel haha. (jadeseahorse) Highly Highly Highly recommend at least for a beer and clean toilet to sit on.
