“horrible mexican”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Service was bad, food was terrible. Son said it tasted like an old car. We ended up not eating and told them we weren't going to pay. Lady told us that if we didn't want Mexican, we shouldn't of come to a Mexican restaurant.

“Great Mexican food in a small place”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

El Korita is a small restaurant in an older shopping center on SR-19 in Eustis. The interior is neat and festive, and the place has 6 booths and two or three tables. The owner and chef, Lorena, is very friendly and always checks with customers to make sure they are enjoying their food. I had ground beef tacos with flour tortillas and a bowl of chicken soup. All of the food was delicious. The restaurant has no wine, but does have a fair selection of beer.

“Amazing and authentic Mexican food”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Just delicious! All sauces are homemade. Everything is FRESH. A little warm and dark inside, but very personal and friendly.

“Stale Chips”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

Although the waitress was very nice, the food was horrible. The chips that started the meal were stale whereas the rice was dry and crunchy. The rest of the food was pretty bland. Defiantly not worth the price.

“AUTHENTIC MEXICAN!”
Reviewed September 3, 2011

Mmm, mmmm! El Korita , thankyou! I have had so much trouble finding delicious mexican food in Florida. I absolutely despise Fiesta Grande and the business they get, only because they are in a great location. El Korita is worth the short drive, hell, it's worth an hour drive! I usually get a Vegetarian Burrito or a Chile Reno. This woman can cook! The atmosphere is comfortable and dimly lit, which I really enjoy.
The hours are a bit odd, so give them a call to make sure they are open! When they are not, and you have had their food before, your stomach and mood will get mean with you!
