First time here. Great place to eat. I had the Fajita Nachos Texanas. Way too much food for 1 person. Makes 2 meals for a cheap price.

My wife and our families and our churches go there every Sunday. The place stays packed on Sunday especially. The service is always super fast and they get everything right 99% of the time. But we've never been disappointed and everyone we know has nothing but great things to say about the place. We've been regulars for years now and... More

The best the best the best if you want authentic Mexican, this is the place you want to be. Prices are fair, portions are huge and the chips and salsa flow freely. Servers hosts and even bus persons are top notch. Very clean always a hit. We eat there weekly.

The food used to be hot fresh and delicious. It seems something has changed. Service slow and food not as good.

We are now regular customers of El Amigo for quite a few reasons. The food is really good, fresh and authentic. The service is friendly and fast. Our orders have always been right with any special instructions followed. The wait staff is really attentive and the atmosphere is upbeat and what you would expect in a Mexican operated restaurant.

The restaurant has an enclosed patio so it's like sitting outside but with airconditioning and it's perfect for children because they have a little freedom of movement. The staff is really friendly and the orders are all delivered correctly. It's an extensive menue. I will say my fish was a little overcooked but everything else was perfect.

I've been several times. My favorite is the fajitas texanas(shrimp, chicken, and steak). There is another dish I enjoy called peluza, I believe. My husband favorite is the California burrito.
