The front desk clerk recommended this place - never know if its a programmed response. But with the reviews on tripadvisor, thought we'd give it a shot. It met our expectations. Food was good, as were the margaritas and pina coladas. If you like salsa on the spicier side, ask for the hot (but be careful) or the tomatillo salsa. All in all, this is a good pick

Love this place- good cheap food- five of us drank and ate like vikings for $90 tip included. Lots of chips and salsa- I know they make this stuff fresh to the table. Healthy choices- big expansive menu!!!

This hard to find place is a hidden gem. Plenty of parking on back side. Friday night and the place was swamped but no wait and the food and service was awesome. You can't go wrong here. The menu is very extensive with steaks and seafood as well.

Since visiting Ensenada, Mexico years ago, I have been unable to find a restaurant that serves authentic Mexican food that tastes like it did down there. Imagine my surprise when El Mazatlan (located in the middle of nowhere) brought back the flavors and memories of Ensenada. Our crew ate here as much as possible. The service was amazing and the food was to die for!

Nice to find a very good Mexican seafood place in, of all places, Cave City! The food was tasty, seasoned just the way I like it, service was fast and friendly and the outdoor seating was perfect for the evening. One caveat, the outside area is also a smoking section (this IS Kentucky, after all!). Nice selection of beers to top it off. Recommended!
