I expected better....

El Indio catered our wedding. There were a series of problems with their management and communication. This email was sent to El Indio dated 11/17/11. As of this date these issues with their catering have not been resolved. If you are considering using El Indio as your caterer for an event, please beware and read on: El Indio, I want to get back to you with some disturbing feedback in regards to your catering service... view more

hospital cafeteria food

if you like hospital cafeteria food you'll love this place.\r \r I've eaten many versions of ""mexican"" food and although not a professional critic, i know what good mexican food is. I ordered the carnitas plate and recieved about 2 tablespoons of overly salty pork meat with some tasteless beans and even more tasteless rice.\r They neglected to tell us they were closing and after our food arrived they began slamming... view more

Mediocre food that tourists will like

Having grown up in S. Cal in the 60's/70's, I have come to understand that over the years, both Calif and Arizona have ""dumbed down"" good Mexican food for tourists and residents who have relocated here. Sonoran style is generally the most mild, cheesy and greasy - but there are complexities to good mexican food you aren't going to get at El Indio. Caliornia needs to take a lesson from New Mexico regarding sticking ... view more

Tasteless plain Mexican food

I don't know why this place has such a good reputation yet the food is left without much taste. The staff is not attentive and rushes you through the line...but most of all, the food is awful. It was a big disappointment to me and my significant other that the food was less than average. We have eaten good mexican food many times but the food here is cheap and very plain.

Mmmm Mmmm mexican

My boyfriend and his family have been going here for years and he finally took me this past weekend to this very busy, very tasty mexican joint. The line was long but worth the wait for our beef tacos, bean burrito, fresh beef tamales and of course the delicious, spiced tortilla chips and guacamole. We took our meal to go and ventured towards Downtown where we had a picnic by the bay- the food really made it the perf... view more

very disappointed

Like the other reviewer, saw it on foodtv and drive with my wife that same day for a little taste. Luckily the line wasnt too bad. We ordered beef tacos, tamales, and rolled tacos and all were a big let down. It may have been one of the worse tasting mexican foods we had. Ingredients seemed fresh enough, but flavor and seasoning were not there in any of the dishes. The tamales, one of my favorite dishes, especially w... view more

Long line to get in!

After it was fetured on DDD, I went and gave it a was average and service slow. The tortillas they make were good and I brought 2 dozen home to Montana! Cant say I would travel 1600 miles to do again.
