Went to El Gallito yesterday. We're in the Ozarks for our annual get together with our young adult kids. All four of us were delighted, especially following last year's disappointment at Vista Grande. We love Mexican food and El Gallito offerings seemed truly authentic Mexican. It's location is just a touch out-of-the-way near the dam, but close to where we were staying. We had a table outside on a pleasant evening and server was very friendly and showed just the right amount of attentiveness. Pitcher of lime margarita was very tasty. Nothing special about the atmosphere, but very highly recommend for true Mexican food lovers like us.

We are all delighted that you enjoyed your experience with us. And the strip is nice in the summer. It's going to be nice this fall too. We're serving up new daily specials and changing some recipes to assure that all customers are as happy about their experience with us as you were. Thanks for your review.

We had our first experience at El Gallito on the Strip in Lake Ozark (behind Wok & Roll) this Memorial weekend and truly enjoyed it. They give chips and salsa free (and you each have your own bowl). We had a plate of the 4 sm. burritos (ckn, beef, cheese, & beans) and one of the 4 vegetarian choices. Both plates came with beans and rice. We also had a draft and a margarita, and the whole bill was $30! Our waiter "Estéban" (Steven) was extremely attentive and really wanted to please us! He gets an A+! Although we ate inside in the attractive, adobe booth setting, there are also tables inside and on the outdoor covered patio. We are locals and will definitely go back!
