I was really excited about this place because I am a HUGE taco fan, but I found it to be overpriced and overly hyped. I would choose almost any taco place in Louisville over this one.

Good food, but....

My wife and I love this place! The carnitas are fantastic and if you like mussels, you have to try theirs! We were in there recently and had a great dinner upstairs in the tiny seating area. Service was friendly and prompt, choice of music could use a little work however. loud techno at dinner? hmm. \r The only negative experience we had was when we were leaving. The manager or owner (?) was literally berating... view more

Ugh...

Just moved back to the "ville" and I heard this place was good, but I was VERY disappointed. The cheese con queso was"velveeta" like....where is the real deal in Louisville? I need to know!! Had the bison burrito....liked the sauce (mole like) but EVERYTHING else fell short. On a good note, they carry Pacifico beer. Also, the person that took my order had bad teeth and too many piercings a... view more

Not worth it...

I won't order fish tacos anywhere else, there's just no comparison. Grilled cod with garlic aoli, cilantro, Mexican slaw... amazing. The margaritas are legendary. If you get two top shelf margaritas, don't plan on driving, or remembering anything the next day. The guacamole is the best in town. The problems with this restaurant, however, outweigh the good aspects. Do not try to take young children here. Period. All ... view more

The Owner Is Rude

Two weeks ago, I might have given El Mundo three or maybe even four stars.But last weekend, my friends and I got there early so we would have no problem dining at what ususally is a very busy restaurant with a very long wait. It's cramped upstairs, but you have to make do. After being there for an hour or so, we were ""greeted"" by the owner. I have been in the restaurant business for YEARS as both a server and a man... view more

Too dirty and too cramped

We tried this place several times and while the food is pretty tasty, it is way over-priced especially considering the ""third world"" conditions. Service was OK, but it's dingy and cramped inside and needs more air from the kitchen fumes drifting up from below.\r \r The outdoor patio is fly-infested in the summer, subject to extreamly loud noise from the adjoining train trackks 20 feet away, and furnished with sta... view more

great margs and fish tacos!!!!!

The only fish tacos I've had before are fried. These were grilled, moist and served with a delicious chipotle sauce. I sat in the backyard at concrete tables that were painted and had huge umberellas...it was crowded and festive. The 3 dollar frozen margarita I ordered was great...i could actually taste the tequila! We had a ball!

Over rated!!! Not a top 10 for Mexican

I visited El Mundo over the summer, and was willing to try a new place with some friends who had been there before. We got there and I felt like we were entering some old bar, then we went to the back of the resturant for the seating on the patio, this was not the best place to be seated, gravel for a floor, plastic chairs to sit in, which the one I was sitting in the leg broke off half way through the dinner, its ri... view more

Bad food...good atmosphere

I went to el mundo after looking at this site for a good mexican restaurant in Louisville. I have to say that there isn't any way possible it is the best. We got queso which was pretty good but the chips were like the nacho chips you get at a baseball game. Had a quesadilla to eat and it was cheese and chicken and tasted like the chicken came straight from a can... would not recommend

Wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The food is the best Mexican food I have ever eaten!! They do serve more than beer and soft drinks. You CAN get a mixed drink if you want one.
