To me, this is an average mexican restaurant. It is , however, the best mexican restaurant in three counties. People come from all over to eat here. The food is good and the service OK. You will see lots of families eating here.

A local couple manning the local tourist info hut recommended the EL Mexicano and we were not disappointed. As another reviewer noted, they serve large portions. The food was very good. We noted the Tripadvisor certificate of excellence on the door when we entered and found it to be deserved.

Portions were HUGE, and very very tasty!! Best Mexican meal we have had, although, to be fair we haven't had THAT many. Staff were lovely, and helped us to understand what things were. We wish that it was closer to where we live, as we would go often.

Was passing through Salina and thought we'd give this place a try. We came on a Friday night and the place was packed. We had two waitresses and one was a total grump and the other the opposite so I guess that balanced out. The salsa was like water. Wait time on food was average. Ordered a chicken chimichanga and the chimichanga was average and the rice and beans were below average.

The salsa and chips are excellent. The first refill is free. We didn't need more than two. I had cheese enchiladas that were great. My husband loved the chile rellenos. My daughter got the veggie fajitas and I tried them. The veggies were seasoned and cooked perfectly. The little ones enjoyed their kids meals (chicken nuggets for one, taco for the other).
