Love this place! Salsa is great, food always good. We have never been there that it was not packed. Service is prompt and food comes quickly. It's hard to find a better Mexican restaurant, especially in the mountains. We prefer this to any Mexican restaurants...More

The food here is consistently good. If you want spicy, you will need to ask, but overall the flavors are good, and the food is fresh. I recommend the enchiladas, yum!

Coming out of the mountains, this place was a beacon of hope. The drinks were wonderful and the food was even better. The staff was great with cranky kids and everyone left happy!

After a long day of hiking you need a great meal. Well...El Cid delivered. From chips and awesome salsa, to the fajitas, the quality and taste of this Mexican spot was A rated. Portions are quite large. Be mindful. Service was excellent.

The food is not authentic Mexican cuisine, but it's decent and the chips and salsa are Yum. If you like spicy food you'll have to add lots of hot sauce. I always eat way too many chips and salsa and ruin my appetite for dinner...More
