El Cerro Reyes is a great quick lunch stop. The staff is very efficient, respects your lunch time period, and the food is fresh and hot. It's a regular stop during my week.

We've eaten here a couple times and had outstanding food and service. However, we've eaten here a couple times and the food was not so good, horrible drinks and horrible service?? It's a coin toss so we stopped trying.

Stopped by with friends and really enjoyed ourselves. Food was fresh, fast and friendly. We had burritos, salads, tacos and chicken. The salsa and chips were plenty and tasty.

I have my favorite Mexican Restaurant but thought I'd try this place again. The last time I tried it, the A/C had gone out, and it was miserable dining there. Not there fault, as sometimes these things happen. Gave them another chance on a Tuesday eve. Business was booming, so they cannot be as average as the rating I gave.... More

We stopped here for dinner at 8:30 on a Tuesday night and it was packed, if that gives you any idea how good the food is. We split the fajitas for two (came with chicken, beef, shrimp, chorizo, and maybe even pork - there was a lot of different meats), and it was delicious, but we probably could have fed... More

I've eaten at El Cerro Reyes several times but never for lunch. Always enjoyed dinner and when the opportunity to try lunch came up, I jumped for it. The owner of the company was up from Florida and wanted to come here for lunch and I came with him. We walked in and were immediately seated. Very friendly and efficient... More

I used to go to this place 3-4 times a month when I lived in LKN. It is the best Authentic Mexican food. I consider the manager Lalo a friend. I have been eating there since 2006 or so. The art on the wall is authentic Mexican art. The people that work in the restaurant are from Mexico. The food... More

We went here because we had a coupon. From the outside it looked dead but when we walked in it was packed and full of life! The food was good and the service was fast. However, when we got home both my husband and I were up all night with upset stomachs. The same happened the next day when we... More
