Salsa tasted similar to pizza sauce and was spicy. Chips tasted a day old and the food we ordered Chimichangas and Wize Fajitas were so spicy we couldn’t eat them. They comped $2 off a $24 food order not eaten. The pitcher of beer was...good of course but we didn’t even finish that. Glad we tried a new place but won’t return.More

Perhaps because of the new owner, the customer is always wrong. For quick takeout on my way home, I ordered #5. I had the menu open and pointed to #5: cheese enchilada, chile relleno, rice/beans. When I got home, I had a beef taco and...rice/beans. I do not eat beef, which is why I ordered from the #5. I did eat the rice and beans, as I did not want to make the 10 mile roundtrip. The next day, I went by and the same man who took my order was again there. To make a long story short, I was in error in placing my order, as I had not specified #5 from the vegetarian section, even though I was pointing at the menu as I placed my order. Turns out there's another #5 which includes the beef taco. At no time did this person indicate that he could understand the confusion. Rather, I was entirely at fault because I had not clearly, explicitly ordered the correct #5. One menu with two #5s????? And my not knowing that is entirely my fault?? I'll never return. Fortunately, I prefer the other Mexican places in Norton and Big Stone, as the food here is mediocre at best.More

Great Mexican dishes with a wide variety of options. Salsa is excellent, not too spicy that is not enjoyable and stays with you long after the meal. Staff is courteous and attentive to your requests.

We went late one afternoon for an early dinner. The food and service were awesome. Even the chips and salsa were fresh and very tasty. The kids meals are big portions.

Co-workers and I had lunch here while we were working. It was my first and last time eating here. Food is very bland. No spice at all. Definitely not worth the money.

Needing a place for lunch, my wife and I stopped at El Castillo. I am glad we did! The food and service were magnifico and the ambiance was authentic! If we lived in Wise, this would be a hangout for us. Give them a try,...you will be glad you did.More

This is my go to place. The food is excellent and is not your typical menu where everything tastes the same. This is the first place my family and friends want to eat when they come visit.
