“Nothing fancy but great service and good food!”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

El Sitio is not a fancy place, but the food is great and they have decent prices. The salsa bar is a favorite of ours and the beer is always cold! We have two young boys and they love it also. Great neighborhood place for some Mexican food. We frequent about twice a month.

A place that has cockroach statues outside says it all.

“Makes Taco Bell look like 5-star dining”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

I feel bad writing a review with such a poor recommendation, but this place is terrible and deserving of a 1-star rating. There are a lot of Mexican restaurants in Lincoln offering a good variety of food - this place does not. They have a salsa bar which consists of salsa (tomato sauce consistency), chips, pickle slices (??), cherry peppers (??) and a black bean and corn relish (which was okay). Salsa bars should have at least or four different salsas and other good stuff . . . not pickles and cherry peppers. All the combinations were your choice of beer or chicken - not shredded beef, not steak, not carne asada, not carnitas or other pork, but either ground hamburger or chicken - plain jane. The cheese was a cheese sauce. Nothing authentic about this place. This is probably good for people who don't like Mexican food because it is so tasteless. You would be better served any one of Lincoln's many other Mexican restaurants.
