“Family Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

Once you see my husband eat El Tiki's buffalo wings, you'd surely buy yours! We're not so much of a drinker and that's what brings us back to El Tiki (plus it's just a few steps away from our home). The food is great! I'm no Mexican nor never been to such a very authentic Mexican restaurant but I hear a lot of foreign people saying they prefer the mild taste of the dishes here. Plus the whole set-up is interesting--they've got surfboard-shaped tables and street posts everywhere; one can pretend they're in a different state or country. Whenever the bar's closed, we would take our son and sit on one of those bamboo benches facing the sea--totally relaxing!

“Wow! So many improvements!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

I have been to this place many times. Mostly because it is close to my house. It recently went under new management, and boy has it improved!! The new homemade nachos and salsa are amazing!! They have started much more entertainment and theme parties, and I love the Wednesday night movie when they project a movie on a huge side of a building. It reminds me of the drive in theatres back home. My husband and I spread out a blanket on the big lawn and enjoy our nachos and cocktails. Love this place!!

“Awesome Nachos!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Coming from Southern California I love Mexican food and El Tiki has the best nachos in town! Lots of other great food too. Very eclectic mix of people from all corners of the globe. Great selection of drinks, beers are cold and reasonably priced. Did I mention the nachos were awesome?
