I am not a huge Mexican food fan. A group of us went there and the food and service was great. My buddy next to me never completely finished his margarita before he was offered another. The food was delicious and the portions are Texas sized. They made me Carnitas tacos which weren't even on the menu. Impressive dinner indeed.

We went to celebrate my birthday last Saturday Very busy.The hostess was on top with the business with a smile and move people to their table promptly.She ask for a chair for me so I could be more comfortable. Then after getting our table our server(Hector) was amazing. My margarita was perfect , we got all our chips hot, salsa guacamole on time as well as our order.The manager came to check that all was in order.Our meals were cook to perfection.The staff know how to run a business. We will be back.

Very good fajitas and quesadillas... Margaritas are very good just be careful bc they are strong. Normally a long wait on Friday nights so come early unless you have a large party then you can make reservations.

El Tiempo is very reliable. The food is always good and so is the service. We love the little Mexican pastries they serve with brunch! They are amazing!
