The food and atmosphere in El Golfo are excellent. They offer a wide variety of beef, pork, chicken and seafood entrees and all priced very reasonably. There were four of us for dinner and each person was very pleased with their food. Service was friendly and, on some nights of the week, there is live music. If you don't want to be blasted out but still want to enjoy, you can sit in the outer dining room.

We ordered the Super Fajita to go, and it was fantastic! For $30, we had enough food for two people. This is what I would call Mexican gourmet food-- the best quality ingredients, meat marinade, salsa, etc. The only suggestion I'd have is to provide more than 3 tortillas since there is enough lobster, chicken, beef, guac, etc. to fill many more.
Also, when we've dined in, I've noticed that the food is very salty.

My and my family went to celebrate my moms birthday and it was such a great experience. The chips and salsa are awesome, they keep refiling them as soon as you ran out of them. The food was tasty, well done/cook . The "Mar y tierra" with the lobster tail was UNBELIAVABLE! It was just amazing i strongly recomend it as well as the Tijuana Platter ( chiken, steak and shrimp fajitas). The atmosphere is great nice spanish music appropiate for all kind of ages. Plus Wednesdays they play Jazz !!!
I Have Absolutely no complaints. This Place is great :)

El Golfo is one of our all-time favorite restaurants. The prices are reasonable, the atmosphere is inviting, the service is always great, and it's a perfect place for just us or with our family. In addition to the standard but delicious burritos/tacos/platters offerings, they have wonderful beef and fish entrees, many with light sauces that appeal to those of us watching our weight. The fish dishes are always perfectly cooked. They're family-friendly and the staff is always very warm and welcoming. (Our favorite is one of the hosts who does magic tricks for our granddaughter!) We love it!!
