It's hard to expect great food in a little town, but once again, the reviews on line all pointed here. El Mazatlan is a little Mexican restaurant tucked in behind a gas station. On the inside, the room is bright and festive. The servers are very attentive, and had drinks and chips/salsa for us very quickly. The menu here is enormous, and there are many great sounding items to choose from. I went with the "Allan Special" - an enormous tortilla with chicken, onions, and peppers, covered in a delicious cheese sauce.

The child's menu is pretty diverse, so we didn't have any issues with the kids being able to find something they'd like.

All in all, a great meal. If you're in town, this is the place to go. If we had stayed a second night, I'm sure we would have made our way back here!

The chicken fajitas were very good. However, the salsa was poor and the rice did not have a lot of flavor. The atmosphere was very good and the service was very nice. Beware that the servers are difficult to understand since they don't speak English very well.

We had lunch here during our cave trip. Food was good and average price. It was clean and nicely decorated. Fast and friendly service.

Food was great and the prices were excellent. It is a family restaurant but they do serve alcohol and it is really cheap! Highly recommended.

We try to go to Cave City every year in the summer and always make sure we go to El Mazatlan restaurant. They have great service and good food at reasonable prices. If you have doubts about something in the menu, go ahead and order it. Everything they have is good!!! I wish they have something similar in Cincinnati.
