Twice now, I have ordered a frozen marquarita with the bottle of beer inserted upside down, and twice, the beer has been the majority of the drink with just a little Frozen marquarita! The bottle was almost empty and the drink was total liquid! They didn't care or offer to make it right. Food is excellent, but I will stick... More

I recently took a couple of friends to eat lunch and it is always a good experience. The food is good and they have lots of options to choose from.

We had a party of 9 come in--the place was not very full when we did. The service was absolutely horrible--had a hard time getting anything to drink, the servers weren't very pleasant (more the "you're bothering me by asking me things" type of attitude). It took absolutely forever to get our food and when we did, it was lukewarm.... More

Tried this on a Saturday evening. They served a bean dip as the salsa and they have a salsa bar. All we tasty and the chips were good. Good iced tea! I tried the chicken mole. It was not the best I have had but it was good. Served with Rice and beans and corn tortillas. I also had a... More

Wow. I am a long time fan of El Cielo from their beginning in the first location. Went last night for drinks and appetizers. (I love their house margaritas and their beer prices are great.) This is about the 10th time I have been at the new restaurant and I think it's going to be the last. I understand the... More

Have been to most in the Greeley area over the past 5 years and we just keep coming back to this one. The fried Pescado is flavorful and unique.

El Cielo features a large, but fairly typical menu for a Mexican restaurant. Servers bring lots of fresh chips to accompany their bean dip and salsa bar, which is necessary, because it often takes a while to get your entrees. I particularly enjoy the chile rellenos, which are always crispy and pair well with the verde sauce. In general, I... More

Definitely not what I would call A+ mexican. The meat seemed like it was made with taco seasoning mix you buy in the store, and the burritos were just kind of smothered with cheese. Also, the re-fried beans were weirdly liquidy. It was definitely edible, but I would imagine you could find better mexican around. I'm not from Greeley, so... More

They have moved across the street from the original location. The new location is a bit larger and the Service is still spotty at times. But the food flavor, quality and portions are still worth recommending for a nice family meal.
