Hostess and wait staff were very friendly and attentive. Dos Equis amber on tap is a major plus for us when dining at any MNexican restaurant. We both had enchiladas which were very satisfactory. We thought the prices were very reasonable.

We ate here on a Monday night, as a party of 11. Our server was the only one manning all the tables, so service was somewhat slow. Food was ok, not anything special.

Very good Mexican fare. We had the Carnitas and a Shrimp Chimichanga. Both were excellent. The chips and salsa were great!

Do not go to any other Mexican restaurant in Havelock. The El Cerro by the movie theater offers authentic food AND friendly customer service. They treat you like family and the food is delicious! I always order the Especial quesadilla which comes with shrimp, beef...More

One of my favorite places to eat as a "local." I have come to know the staff over years of patronizing the establishment. It is, however, the food service and value that keeps us going back!

When the family feels like Mexican food we always stop by the El Cerro on either side of Havelock. They are our favorite. However I have never had any bad experiences at any of their locations which includes Morehead City and Emerald Isle.

Our family drives by this restaurant every Sunday after Church. My son in law recommended we give it a try. The service was great from the start. They handled the grandchildren with a problem. The menu was impressive with a large variety. Food arrived quickly....More

The staff is very attentive to you, your drink and your needs. Food is always hot (temp) and not overly hot (spicy) unless you dig that!
