Almost immediately or drink and appetizer orders were taken. We placed our food order and that arrived very quickly as well. The food tasted... More

I remember going to the Berry Street location as a small child. I didn't care for Mexican food and everything on the menu was covered in orange grease. I think maybe the menu was greasy too! But my tastes have changed and so has El Chico. The Baker Blvd location make really decent Tex Mex food at a reasonable price.... More

Been here several times and it is consistantly a good choice for us. Today we had a waitress we'd not seen before and she seemed to be new. She came across as nervous and a bit unsure of things, but was actually great. She may have been new but she really took care of us. One minor hiccup, we didn't... More

We had a group of 10 adults for lunch. Out waitress seemed stressed out and snapped at me when I asked for tortillas. Out of 10 dishes 5 were lukewarm to cold. Our service had been slow since we arrived. At this point I was done. I went to the host stand to talk to a manager. After about 5... More

We went in to El Chico about 1:40 pm, and were greeted promptly. We ordered 2 fajita plates, and 2 soapapeas. It did not take 10 minutes to bring our order out! The fajitas were not sizzling! The had made this food in advance! I will rate this place fair for fajitas! Our total was $38 food and tip.

This is a nice place to have lunch. The staff is always friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere is pleasant. The food comes out of the kitchen quickly, so expect that quality. I enjoy the house queso and their charro beans.

I've frequented a lot of El Chicos over the years, this location in particular several times, and it's always been the most consistent of the bunch. Food is dependably good. Last night, they were very slow to seat us, but once we were, the service was fine. Server was super friendly and attentive. Food was good, chips and salsa plentiful,... More
