For fast food, this is excellent. I had the burrito, and actually went for 'the beast' - which was far too much food! It is served in a foil wrap which you peel away as you eat. The coffee was not great however.

Good food, good service, good selection for a reasonable price. We always get a burrito from here! The slushies are really nice and the wedgies are good too.

Had a great burrito, spicy chicken with hot salsa, it was lovely. The fillings are always fresh, the service is great and the food is authentic. Keep it up El Mexicano!

stopped here on our way down to kent, speedy service and fresh tasty food, the sweet potato fries are gorgeous and would definitely recommend, bit pricey for what you get but it's services so it's understandable that it's expensive

I am giving this eatery an average purely because the staff at the time looked, sounded, and acted like they didn't want to be there! Managers need to keep on top of their staff for paying customers.

It was a surprise to find this restaurant there, surrounded by the typical fast food places, but even more surprise was when trying their burritos, really goods. The best option in that service área.
