This is a great place to have a 3 course meal for lunch. Service is excellent. Owner is on site and oversees service.

Forgive me if I didn't spell this expression correctly but it's an saying that I received from the wait staff every time they served me my delicious lunch at EL Tunel. The warm ambiance and kind smiles from the staff led me to El Tunel for lunch (Almuerzo) every week. For $2.25, I enjoyed a delicious hot bowl of soup, a class of fresh juice, a delectable plate of food (the lunch was different every day) and a scrumptious dessert. They are open only for lunch and it gets crowded. So, try to get there before 1:00. Bien Provecho!!

Looks like a hole in the wall from the front, but very nice, clean inside. Appears to be a Mom and Pop operation. Three floors. Tables are set with nice glassware, etc. all the waitstaff was very friendly. The menu of the day was $2.50 each. It consisted of noodle soup, mote, meatballs in gravy with rice and vegetables, juice, and a coconut dessert. All very tasty. We will be back.

We went for the "menu del dia" and could not have been happier. Food was excellent and the atmosphere and price could not be beat. Finally felt like I was in a different culture (and loved every minute of it).
