Both El Mirasol locations feature a singular focus on wholesome, fresh food with house specialties like Chicharron en Salsa, our rich aromatic Mole Sauce, thickening the sauces using flax seed, and hand made Corn Tortillas made fresh daily. Expand your Mexican food horizons with regional selections like Shrimp, Scallops or Chicken in Pipian Sauce, Spinach Enchiladas in Chile Verde or enjoy traditional favorites like Carnitas, Carne Asada and Chiles Rellenos are gluten free. The Castaneda family welcomes a chance to serve you at either of their award winning El Mirasol locations, or we can provide catering for your event from small to large at your home, your event venue or host it at our very own Los Arboles Hotel!

Well prepared dishes, good margaritas, good service. The moles are fresh & delightful......the avocado salad is wonderful. Outside seating is good.

Have been eating at El Mirasol for 15+ yrs at the Palm Canyon location. Had no idea they have an Indian st spot. It's lovely with a wonderful patio. Chicken flautas, the best I've had. Love love El Mirasol, it's our guilty pleasure when we are in Palm Springs!

My wife and i eat at el mirasol at least three times a month on saturdays. As always, the food is great. The way they prepare their chicken (i'm guessing in a high pressure cooker) is the best! Order anything that has chicken in it and you won't be disappointed. The service is prompt and the portions are large.

This place has been here for years, and it still draws a crowd. Why? Good food and generous portions at good prices. I suggest a combination plate of the Beef Chile Rojo and Pork Chile Verde on a first visit. They are my favorite dishes, and surely will win over first-time visitors.
