Very good salsa and guacamole dip. Server took food order. Runner brought food and server never reappeared. Most of the food was OK. One steak dish was truely inedible as the... More

The Fajita Taco Salad with steak was really good, it was huge! The Sopa de Pollo was really delicious, had all the vegetables in it. There's a sauce bar that you can pick all kinds of sauces to dip with the hot chips they give you when you dine in. The price was very reasonable.

Best Mexican in town hands down. Authentic mexican NOT just your usual mexican chain reheated junk. Call ahead as space is sometimes limited.

This place was one of the best Mexican food around Town. Not salty, very flavorful and always willing to drive across town to dine. Sadly we drove across town today and there is a closed until further notice sign and the restaurant is torn apart

We love going here and enjoy the food and each of us have favorites! The Queso cheese is great mixed with their bean dip. Service is always friendly!

My favorite thing about this restaurant is the salsa bar. It is nice to have a wide variety of salsa choices. But it is more than that. The servers are always friendly and I have truly enjoyed all the menu items I have tried. Recently I have really gotten into their tortas.

As you can see below, I really like the food at El Trio. However, we recently placed a large carryout order. First issue - it was not ready when promised - not even close. The food finally arrived 15-20 minutes late. I brought it home only to find that the chicken fajitas were missing. Called the restaurant and they said... More

We've been on a low carb kick for a few months now and that is depressing enough without considering that it's tough to eat out now. However, we found the grilled chicken Caesar salad to be a great adaptation of the american version. The dressing is really a vinaigrette, so no cream either for those of us who must avoid... More

I ate here for the first time today, a Saturday lunch with 9 friends. The service was very good, especially since we all needed our own check. My black bean & spinach burrito was SO good, and it was plated beautifully with a little lettuce, salsa, guac, sour cream, etc. I would get this again, but everyone's food looked tasty... More
