This is our favorite Mexican restaurant! Good size portions, authentic taste, and prices are reasonable. Their salsa is the best we have found and very fresh! The best time to go and avoid the crowds is anywhere from 2pm-5pm.

We ate here and weren't very impressed. Some people in our group liked their food and others did not. Pretty average over all. The service was not good. It took forever to give our order and get our drinks.

Average experience here at El Cerro. Sorry but the service was less that average and the food was just...average Mexican. It's hard to mess up Mexican food. The beer was also less than cold.

I had the chicken chimichangas and my husband had the burrito deluxe. The meat was outstanding. The beans were a little too mushy (kindof looked like they were put in a blender) but all and all the food was awesome. The only issue we had...More

I don't know why I keep coming to this location, everytime I go here I am mad by the time I leave. Service is so slooooowwww. Takes so much time to get a drink, order and then get the food. They aren't that busy either....More

Food was delicious. Service was prompt. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars because we were seated by window with sun shinning in our face which made it humid. We did have wait to get in restaurant. It was worth it over all.

I love Mexican food! My weakness, I'm from Texas and I know Tex-Mex food. This place knows it, too. Lots of selections, great prices, and so delicious. Y'all come on in. It's cool inside, except for the salsa!
