We have been here several times when in Saratoga and have enjoyed the food. This time however, the service was rushed and we felt like we had to leave when someone came to our table late and wanted to have food. Our friend was able to order food, but felt like it was an imposition. It's too bad, as our... More

Our meal started out with delicious chips and salsa, a quesadilla before our entree arrived and dessert. Service was excellent, will be back again!!!!

There's nothing like good Mexican food to warm up a cold winter day, so my friend and I decided that El Mexicano would be perfect for lunch. The restaurant didn't disappoint us. We were greeted as soon as we walked in and from there on in the staff was accommodating, attentive and friendly. After reading their extensive menu, which was... More

My husband and I both grew up in southern Arizona and Mexican food is "our" food. Living and traveling outside of Arizona we rarely even try Mexican restaurants, as they don't even come close to authentic. How surprised we were to find the little gem here in upstate New York!! The food is so yummy! The salsa is so flavorful... More

Arrived here about 5:30 on a January Saturday night and it was very busy, at least 3 parties were birthday celebrations and we all sang along. Did not wait long for a table (waited in a quick moving line), and as always, the food and service was great! Husband had the pork and I had a combination plate. We are... More

My wife and I have been to their restaurant in Hudson Falls several times. This one is just as good. I had chicken tacos and my wife had chicken enchilada. Great! Thanks!

I was expecting typical Mexican tacos, fajitas, enchiladas, and if that's what you are looking for, they have that. But they also have very fresh, flavorful dishes way above the norm. Excellent service. Tables are a little tight, probably because they've gotten popular. We tried the Sangria, not very good. We will definitely go back and explore more menu items

People couldn't be more friendly, food and service couldn't be better. We've been there at least 5 times now, including New Years Eve 2016, and it never disappoints. First time was a surprise; we hadn't heard anything about the place and were expecting a weak attempt at replicating Mexican food. First clue: everyone working in the place is Mexican (OK,... More
