“Extreme value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2011

We went with relatives who live in Huntsville. They had heard good things but hadn't tried El Herradura yet. We were all pleased with our meals. Excellent salsa. The chips were a little greasy but may have been fresh from the fryer. My chicken enchilada came with salad, rice and beans. All were authentic flavor, better than 90% of the Mexican you'll get elsewhere and dirt cheap. 5 thumbs up!

The food is great, the margaritas are good! It's our favorite mexican restaurant in town and it's convenient and cheap. The salsa is awsome too!

“so far, this is Alabama's best tasting Mexican restaurant!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2009

I have been touring the Southern states, trying to find the best restaurants of the South. El Herradura was a secret hot tip given to me by a fellow chef from Arizona who had discovered it last year by accident.

This is what a reat Mexican restaurant should be. Fantastic enchiladas, burritos, salsa & margaritas!! - Check our their Chile Colorado, I haven't had a spicy carne asada like that east of Deming, NM

For the people that think Rosie's Cantina is good Mexican food, do you think Red Lobster is great seafood and Logan's has great steaks? oh please! - treat yourself to some REAL Mexican food!!

PS - this place is full of really low cost entree's (like $7 average) and the food comes so fast that it is there before you can even get a third sip of your margarita! HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!
