“Thanks El Faro”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

My wife and I have eaten here several times in the last few months and have never had a bad meal. Each item on the menu is a great value.

“Customers should feel wanted ....”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

My visit was a let down. I didn't enjoy hearing the servers talking about who was going to wait on us. As if we were a burden. This is your job. Not to mention our lunch came our covered in grease. When mentioned to the server, her reply was you are the only one with a complaint and everyone has a different opinion. Sad. We won't go back.

“Food was ok.”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

I appreciated the free chips and salsa and the service was very fast and nice. The food (I had a cheese enchilada plate) tasted a bit weird...like flour or butter...It was ok, but I don't think I would go there again.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Stopped in for lunch on my first day in T or C. There was a good crowd, and an excellent menu. I chose the flautas - it was a good choice. The waiter was distracted and on his phone, sigh. . .

“We should have went to Maria's”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

We decided to try out el farro after being long time customers of Maria's and I was very disappointed. The menu was identical the only difference was the names and the taste. I don't know how you are still in business, be original get your own menu. I will continue eating at Maria's thank you though.
