I do not tire of the meals. This time I had the Tostada Dinner. What a treat. Loaded with your choice of bean, steak, or chicken. The avocado slices are the best. I frequent at least twice a month. Service is always very good. If you are looking for the best in Valparaiso look no further. Great menu, very casual dining.

My husband & I both enjoy eating at El Amigo. It is not a fancy place at all, very bare bones, but the food is the most authentic Valparaiso has to offer. We generally get the chile rellenos, steak tacos, chile chilaquiles or burritos (which are huge). Their prices are very resonable.

Always a great experience with the food and always a good value. But my family always says to get the food for take out. The decor leaves a lot to be desired. The seating area is loud and somewhat uncomfortable. You go to El Amigo for the food and the value, just eat it at home!

The avocado burrito is my go-to favorite. The chips and salsa are to die for. If they had a couple benches outside in front with some flower containers this place would be awesome in summer.

The service is always fast. There may be a lot of people waiting for their take out and lined up at the register to pay, but these guys are always moving. You won't be waiting long.

I love their steak burritos! But everything on the menu is delicious and the service is very friendly. My good friend in the Air Force must visit two places when he comes home: El Amigo and King Gyros!
