The food is good but not all the time. Sometimes its not fresh. One time the server forgot to put ice on my juice and forgot to bring me some tortilla for my carne asado. The service is ok.They have a good Taquitos. Good prices.

Our friends from Fairhope invited us to meet them for dinner at El Mexicano. They go here most Friday nights as do a lot of other locals. Very reasonable prices. Located in a strip mall, casual, not fancy, good service, standard Mexican menu. Our friends...More
