Family of 5 had our meals on the table within 15 minutes and piping hot. Food was fresh and delicious. Only problem is which El Norte is better? They are all good in my book. Can't beat the quality and taste of this restaurant!

I think this restaurant was much better a couple of years ago than it is now. It's still good but each time I've gone here the food is salty and greasy.

Been here over several years and a few times in the past weeks. One of the attractions of this place was speed of service. It appears no longer. On the past 2 visits the restaurant was largely empty, but still our food took forever to...More

My enchilada were swimming in grease, husband's steak was too tough to chew (his teeth are fine). Waitress never checked on us but chatted with friends(?) eating at nearby table.
