Just went there tonight, two of us. We had the enchilada plate and the fried avocado. The enchiladas were terrible. The beef in them was mixed with carrots and onions and was not cooked together with the sauce like normal enchiladas. The beef was like an already prepared type that you would see in picadillo. The fried avocado was okay, however it didn't taste like it was freshly made. It's stuffed with fajita and I got some very chewy pieces of fajita in mine, like the fatty parts. The tortilla soup that comes on the plate I was not a fan of. The food came out super quick, like too quick to where you know it's not made fresh. However, I had a really terrific cucumber margarita and the waitress was good.
If you're an understanding person you will realize that when they have the time, they will make you feel at home by the way they conversate with you. On the other hand, when they are extremely busy, just like anywhere else, they will tend to their customers and limit the conversations. They are …
This past week mom and me sat down and ask for the specials house speci, and we waited and waited and waited................... I finally got tired after half an hour I am not exaggerating I got up walked over to cooks prep area to get it myself its been a half hour!!! II asked my waitres can I have my food? I'm hungry I need to go back to work! Everyone look like a deer in headlights no one knew what was going on! A 50 min later I went to pay, my waitress and the cashier agreed it was a half hour long wait and all I got was"I'm sorry"- REALLY! !!Never again and here comes the holidays I will definitely not bring family and friends here
I had lunch with my daughter today and the building smells old, I ordered beef enchilada plate and the beef was dark like it had been re headed several times and crackers were old along with chips and salsa they served.
We ordered several tacos for the dealership on Saturday and they were on point. I recommend this place for authentic Mexican cuisine.
Great food at great prices.
Don't really like doing reviews but this restaurant is just something else. Fried shrimp and fish was burnt, I let waiter know he told me " hope next time you have better experience". The sides were so cold, seemed like they had come out of fridge. I asked for large shrimp cocktail and got like a 12oz serving cup for $9.95, I laughed and told waiter she said that is the large. Never going back to this restaurant you have been worned.
if you want canned food with horrible service come here.
Yes this service has always been rude. Watiresses obsessing about the latest gossip and ignoring the customers. When you do call them over, they act like you're imposing on them. If you want a coffee refill, you'll end up having to approach the counter yourself. On action 4 news facebook, where they ask people to submit their dirty dining experiences, 3 people wrote in and complained about roaches at El Taquito.The meat is often full of fat. The refried beans are so laden with bacon grease you can't believe it. Sometimes they actually serve quality food here, but mostly not.My girlfriend worked here for years, and said that her co-worker - the cook, has herpes. My other friend, who's in a wheelchair, told me he saw one of the cooks reach into their pants to scratch, and not even washing up afterwards.
I give this place a 1 out of 5. Sides all reheated.... Rice was DRY. Probably not even cooked the same day.Fish overcooked rubbery and bland.Shrimp also overcooked rubbery and bland.It is places like this that really upset me because they charge high fresh prices 12-13 for fried shrimp plates. Grilled fish can be 21+ dollars. On the other hand you could drive to Mcallen and go to Pappadeaux and pay 3-5 dollars more a head and get fantastic food.To be worth attempting to eat this bad food they should not charge over 10 dollars for anything on the menu. Leaving the average plate at 5 dollars.Terrible. Two thumbs DOWN
dont know why we keep coming here in the evening seems like the food looses it good quality...taquito is famous for their carne quisada and they ran out..
