A tad pricey for lunch, but we had tons of leftovers so it was worth it. Food was great! Great queso and salsa! Fajitas were on pointe as well!

Have been to this restaurant several times during the last year and have never been disappointed. A group of seven of us get together once a week for dinner and we eat at El Amigo about once every two months. The reason we keep going back is the great food and service. We normally order seven different entrees and no... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident and it is amazing! Highly recommend if you love Mexican food but love the Authenic taste and feel.

Hadn't been going for a while after disappointing results. But thought to give it a try again. Glad we did. The food is served as advertised, no missing ingredients (my pet peeve) hot and delicious. Service was wonderful and friendly. Glad they're back.

I was passing thru Kannapolis and looked up restaurants. El Amigo was close to interstate and ranked #1 so I decided to give it a try. We was seated quickly upon arrival. Drink orders taken while we was served chips and salsa. The salsa to me was really good with flavor but no spice to it which I like. I... More

Best chicken soup for a cold evening. Squeeze in a bit of lime and it's to die for. It will become a favorite.
