On our way back to our hotel from a full day of sightseeing we decided to stop here for dinner. We were a little reluctant at first but we checked out the reviews and decided to give it a try. We were greeted & seated immediately. Our server was friendly & the service was very quick. Drinks & chips with salsa were at our table within minutes. There was a lot to choose from. Our dinner was great. No complaints on the food. It was very good. We left completely satisfied & we are glad we gave them a try.

We were in the Asheville area looking for a place to eat, and Mexican was what we decided on. This restaurant had an un-assuming look from the outside, located in a strip mall type area. But, often, these restaurants will have wonderful, local food. There were quite a few cars outside, so it looked like it would be a great place to try. It was not worth it. The food was poor quality. My husband had a huge piece of gristle in his chimichanga. The salsa, the chimichanga meat, everything was lacking in flavor. I would not recommend this place to anyone. You can find better.

I used to go about once a month. Last visit was so bad I decided not to go back any more. The plate was unattractively presented, the food was inedible, and the cashier couldn't care less. Not recommended.

I ate lunch at El Clapala while in the Asheville area on business. The restaurant isn't fancy looking, especially from the outside, but the food is great! The staff greeted us when we came in & checked on us frequently. If you like casual dining, great Mexican food and aren't trying to impress a date with a fancy restaurant, this place is for you!
