One of the two best Mexican places in this region. Service is friendly and excellent. The food is hot and fresh, and prepared to order.

Food is average at best and lots of it is served lukewarm - place is not very clean - do yourself a favor and go across the highway to El Jimador Mexican Restaurant - you'll be glad you did. We had been going to El Giro but the food just kept getting worse & worse so when El Jimador opened... More

Average food, but reasonably priced. Service is good and staff is helpful. Good to eat after a long day on the water.

This place is awesome. The food is so tasty and it is cheap. The portions they bring you are large enough to feed two ppl. The salsa is the best in the area!! Try this place!!

We eat here several times a month and it is good food. Sometimes better than other times. Margaritas are wonderful. Prices are great. Meal portions are a good size. I say you should give it a try.

Where do we start!?!?!? The food was cold, the margaritas...well that's nothing but a lemon lime slush with maybe a drop of some sort of alcohol (the waitress had no idea what they were made with), and the wait staff...when they ask you why you need a plate when asked, you know you're in the wrong place. I wouldn't feed... More

Not sure what the family dynamics of the ownership of this establishment is but I know this: The hot sauce at this restaurant and at the family related El Tio's restaurant in Hemphill, TX and also in San Augustine TX is to die for. They serve it warm and it is chunky, spicy and flavorful. I stop by bi-weekly traveling... More
