Four of us had dinner here on a Saturday night. The place was not busy. It is clean and tidy. The food was just average in quality. I had beef enchiladas that would have benefited from a little more spice. The flan was quite good....More

Just a small local Mexican Restuarant in a small stripmall. Food is fabulous, service is excellent. Not expensive. One of our local favorites.

A good place to have a good Mexican meal. The service is ok maybe a little slow at times. The place is clean with a bit of Mexican flare of corse. My wife and I eat there four or five times a year.

El lago is very just satisfactory. The food isn't anything unique or impressive, but it's a good bet if you just want basic Mexican staples.

Cute little place, but has room for larger family groups. Friendly staff and great Mexican type breakfasts. They also offer other breakfast choices which are also very good. Haven't tried lunch yet, but will soon.

Waitresses ignored us 2 middle aged women completely and were more engaged with each other and the cook staff speaking in another language. Used to enjoy some of their food but not worth the awful, rude & disrespectful staff.

We have eaten hear several times for breakfast. They have choices of good Mexican breakfast items and American items also so there is something for everyone. The staff is friendly land and service is usually quick although they do attract large family and friend groups...More
