The tacos are excellent. You will be hooked after the first visit. They also serve rotisserie chicken.

If you want good food and don't care about bad service, then El Rey is good for you. If you want both good service and good food, El Rey is NOT the place to go. The drive-thru takes an eternity to get through. They don't listen to you when ordering and they keep trying to speed up your order-taking when it's going to take another 5 minutes to get to the window anyway. And, if you are lucky you will get tons of extra sauce, but no fork or spoon to eat with. Any, if you complain to the AOL email or the website, you WILL NOT GET A RESPONSE. They absolutely do NOT reply. So, if you can take their "I don't care attitude," then the food is good!
