I recently stayed near the Maine Mall and had a hankering for Mexican food. I checked the locations and reviews and decided on El Rodeo. I chuckle now having read some of the reviews who the writer did not know if this was authentic Mexican food or not; it was delicious whatever. Well. having lived in Arizona, I can tell you that this is indeed authentic Mexican food and it is delicious! I did take-out and early as I was, the restaurant was already pretty busy. I ordered the Chicken Enchiladas Verde, shredded chicken in corn tortillas with a tomatillo sauce. It was just beautifully spiced, neither to mild nor too hot; left a very pleasant sensation in my mouth. The rice was equally well flavored. What I really appreciated and have never seen before is that the non-heated components like lettuce tomato sour cream and extra cheese where given to me in a separate container. No cooked lettuce for this dish. And the takeout order also included warm tortilla chips and salsa. I will go there again next time I am visiting South Portland.
