This place is wonderful! We often go here for lunch and have never had anything short of mouth-watering food and great service. The restaurant is clean and the decor is definitely straight from Mexico, which adds to the experience. From the outside it looks questionable, I'll give you that; but looks are deceiving in this case. I've never felt even slightly queasy after eating here, which is saying something because I do not have an iron stomach. At most I've slipped into a food coma - you know, the kind you experience after a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. You also can't beat the prices, especially at lunch. There's a reason why this place is usually packed!

did the first reviewer ever eat at a mexican resturant, taco bell doesn't count. i've eaten many items on the menu and several co-workers have as well. it's our favorite. go, be your own judge. if you like real mexican food, check out the other diners and enjoy what mexicans in memphis enjoy

Just a good authentic mexican food restaurant / bakery / mercado. lunches are extremely busy it is not uncommon for complete strangers to share a table . Which makes for a fun interesting lunch
. .food is served extremely hot and quick the waitresses serve and go which is an added plus this restaurant is also a full service bakery with good coffee. dinners are much more relaxed with an expanded menu reasonably priced. mexican food in memphis is hit or miss, this one hit the bulls eye.

Could not eat the meal. It was so horrific several of us became ill. Words can not discribe this place. I now know why there are no stray dogs in Memphis. This restaurant is a health hazard!!
If you value your health avoid:
El Gallo Giro, 3991 Lamar, Memphis TN.
