“Average food WAAY over priced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2012

Read all the reviews so was excited to go and eat "Real Mexican" Well after ariving its quiet small inside fills up quick there is a small kids area with colors and stuff that would prob keep them occupied for a little bit. After getting an english menu and looking over it the choices which were very limited consisting of enchilidas or steak and thats about it . This is NOT tex mex so they dont have fajitias or anything you would expect in a normal US mexican resturant. After looking over the menu for about 20min nothing sounded appetizing so we went with pork,beef and chirzo sausage in flour tortillias with fried beans and rice. Our server did speak english and seemed nice at first so we ordered strawberry margaritas which we got lime in small whiskey glasses full of ice so you probly got about 8oz of drink at 7euro a pop so we ordered water which they charge for unknowing to us. Then our food arrived looked ok three small tortillias and some rice but when i opened it up to put the beans in my wife and i busted out laughing. Inside was what appeared to be i kid you not beannie weenie hot dog pieces and what appeared to be ham chunks and beef. I dont know what mexican reasturants the previous reviews have been to but they dont serve beenie weenie hotdogs in any Mexican resturant i have ever eaten at. We laughed for about 30min over this and had to ask our server what this was and were told sausage... Laughed out loud again. So our meal consisted of 3 small tortillias with beeanie weenie hot dog pieces some ham that was i guess the "cirzio" sausage and beef and some red sauce. It tasted OK but could not get over the whole hot dog thing. After that our server NEVER came back we had to flag down another girl that worked there to get our check. Then when we got the check it was 48 euro Unreal ! Too small plates of food 3 glasses of water 2 very small terrible margaritas for 65 Dollars! Totaly ruined our night will NEVER go back! If looking for REAL Mexican food keep looking TACO BELL is a much better option and NO beanie weenies LOL.

“Great Mexican food-- especially for Germany!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2011

Very authentic, very delicious. We will definitely come back for the entrees-- try the argentine sliced steak with tomatoes and onions! I wish the chips came with normal red salsa. Also, the regular margarita is very OK. They need a good, frozen margarita that isn't so bitter (I think a Bacardi mixer at home in my blender is better than theirs). Overall, GREAT FOOD!

“El Mero - The only REAL Mexican food in Stuttgart”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2011

If you are an American ex pat like me and greatly miss Mexican food than you must make a trip to El Mero. The chef and owners are from Mexico and their food is to die for, so much better than the Ger-mexican that you find elsewhere in the city. Be prepared to spend more than you would at a Mexican place in the US, but it is well worth it. Make reservations on the weekends.

“Finally found authentic Mexican cuisine in Stuttgart--thought it may never happen!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2010

Awesome small Mexican restaurant with amazing guacamole, margaritas, and food. Menu could be a bit more extensive, but I'm not complaining. Definitely a good find. Close to both U and S Bahn stations. Lots of street parking too. Only open for dinner Wed. through Sunday.
