Our visit was great! We were evacuees from hurricane Matthew & needed a hearty meal. We were seated right away & the margaritas were served very quickly!! The fajitas were very very tasty & I received 5 tortillas!! I've never gotten more than 3 anywhere!! (& I always get the fajitas wherever I go)

The staff and owner Jimmy are so friendly and treat you like family. The food is always hot and delicious. Great happy hour bargains. We eat here once a week.

Griffin seems to struggle to have a good mexican food option. All are subpar. I enjoy mexican food enough that even average mexican food is okay with me but thats all that this was. Service wasnt very good and food was average. Doubt we will be back .

We had a large group, they were very accommodating. They kept the chips and fresh salsa coming. The salsa was very tasty with a little bit of heat which we appreciated. Our dinners were fairly quick and also very good. Excellent service! Would definitely recommend it if you're in town!

Our family has enjoyed dining at El Durango's in Griffin for over a decade but recently we've noticed disturbing changes in the quality of their food and today our son was half done with his plate when his fork actually stabbed right through an adult cockroach, legs and all. Management and everyone was embarrassed and apologetic and did not charge... More

First of Jimmy is the nicest guy. They got the best food and the jalapeno cheese dip is freakn awesome. The draft beer is always super cold and got the best prices. Think about eating here everyday.

I was introduced by a stranger when asked where to eat around here. I was not sorry. This is a local family owned restaurant which you don't see much anymore. I told the owner "Jimmy" as he introduced himself my story. We talked forever. I was like he had known me forever. I will go back every September race week!!

This is the best Mexican restaurant in Griffin, no question about it. My wife and I go there every time we want a Mexican food meal. The food is always excellent, and the spicy cheese dip is the best. I always judge a Mexican restaurant by its cheese dip, and any Mexican restaurant that does not have spicy cheese dip... More
