The food itself is good. But each time we've gone, we waited at the doorway for a long time to be seated (we've even left without even being acknowledged).not because they were busy but because no one bothered to greet or seat us. Service is very slow and food order got botched up (we could not send it back as... More

When you observe lots of Hispanic day laborers stopping in to eat, you know you're eating at a place where the food must be authentic. And it was. Great food, great service.

Every year when we come to Myrtle Beach, we head back to this restaurant. It never fails to be anything but awesome! The chicken fajitas were served very fast and were sizzling as they were served! We love this restaurant and highly recommend. There is never a wait!

Had a taste for some Mexican food so found on line that the El Centro Grande was close by our vacation condo. Wife ordered Chili Rellenos​; I had a Carnita Chimichanga. The menu tries to approximate a Baja California Mexican style. Success to our expectations - so-so compared to my many years of eating experience in Southern California. The chips... More

The Conway location is much better. Nothing at this location tastes quite right. If you want El Cerro, its definitely worth the drive out to Conway.

That special feeling when you go to one of your favorite restaurants and they have added one of your favorite dishes to the menu. I am, of course, referring to pulled pork. They have a very nice menu of classic Mexican dishes and have incorporated pulled pork into the choices. Staff is always friendly. Food consistently good. Our go to... More

The Skinny Margarita is really delicious. They make it with juice rather than the sour mix that everybody uses. They also have many other flavors, like the Jalapeno Margarita. Next visit! The salsa is really really good here. The menu has some of the standard Mexican restaurant items such as the Burrito Deluxe, which is my husband's go-to for Mexican... More

When we walked in, the restaurant had a foul smell. The margarita tasted as if there was no alcohol, the portions were fair but not large and the quality was average at best. no atmosphere and not anywhere like the Mexican in Atlanta.
