What can I say that hasn't been said already. This is a great food fix, for sure. The price is right. The food is is hot. Seating as well if you like. Nothing fancy! Just basic good Mexican food for a great price. We keep coming back when we come to town.❤

The meals were very good and great size portions. The service was fast and friendly. My husband did not like the Sonora enchilada but only because it was not what he was expecting; I am sure they are very good for a Sonora enchilada. Cash only. They are closed on Sundays.

There's no better place to meet your craving for Mexican food than El Norteno. It's not fancy, but the food, and service, are exceptional. The red chile is wonderful, and where else can you get a red chile burro for $3.50? The chilaquiles, topped with an egg or two with a side of refried beans, will stay with you throughout the day. Their salsa is enough to stop for, as are their tacos and gorditas. Thank goodness places like this are still around. Give this place a try. You won't be sorry.
