This is a Tex-Mex restaurant with a different flair. There is John Wayne memorabilia everywhere. It was very busy and very crowded the day we went. We opted for the patio. Nice day and good food. Was it the best Tex-Mex ever. No. Was it good. Yes. I'm looking forward to going back.

Excellent restaurant for delicious Tex-Mex food. We tried five different plates including a child's choice - cheese quesadillas. Everyone enjoyed their dish and we would go back again - very, very good!

Tried it twice in two weeks just to be sure. The first visit I waited 20 minutes to be acknowledged by anyone from the restaurant. The manager on duty was flirting with a young lady at the table next to me and FINALLY asked if I'd been helped. He took my order, went back to flirting, then brought me the... More

We went Thursday night after a visitation for my husband's uncle who passed away. We ordered the queso with hamburger in it and soft taco steak tacos. The steak was really chewy, but over all food was decent. The problem was the next morning when we woke up we both were sick, same symptoms,dizzy, and terrible headache. I was worse... More

We sat on the patio which has pillars placed in very inconvenient locations. Our waiter was nice, but had no clue what enchilada sauce was. We also only saw him to order and when he dropped off the food. I ordered the beef and bean burritos from the a la cart portion of the menu, as well as queso dip... More

My mom, husband and twelve-year-old nephew recently dined here on a Saturday evening. We were seated on the patio right away. I was nervous about sitting outside since it was warm and humid that day, but we were hungry enough that we asked for the first available table. I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable we were on the patio.... More

Took some friends from LA to El Gabacho since we did not want to drive too far. The service was great. The place is smaller than expected. Chips and salsa were really good. Enchiladas Vegetariano - Zucchini, yellow squash, bell pepper, onion and tomato in three flour tortillas and covered in sour cream sauce. Enchiladas Verdes - Two chicken enchiladas... More

Tables to close not enjoyable at all. chips all broken. Slow service. Sometimes it's good sometimes it's really bad. Only come because it's close to home. Really can't get over how close the table are. Probably won't be back.
