Good Mexican food can be found at El Aguila. Outside seating during the summer and early fall is a bonus but can become a little noisy if semis pass by. Service is prompt with food well prepared and authentically Mexican.

We spent the night in Gardnerville on our way up to Washington and decided to try El Eguila Real for dinner and we were very happy with our decision.
I ordered Crab Enchiladas with Chile Asados and they were exceptional and plate lickable.
My wife ordered a Chalupa and it was not the standard deep fried tortilla stuffed with stuff.
Instead, this was a large tortilla stuffed with shredded beef and rolled and deep fried then topped with guacamole and sour cream. This also got high marks.
The presentation of the food was creative and the greens were fresh.
We will make this a regular stop on our trips up and down Highway 395.

This is the best Mexican food in Gardnerville but by far not the best in the Tahoe, Reno, Gardnerville, Minden, Carson City area. But food is good if not perfect. Used to like the Flautas but now they cut them in several pieces. Service is always good and the crisp tortilla with cinnamon and whip cream that they give you for desert is great.

When you are in Gardnerville take the time to get some lunch or dinner here. Best Mexican food in town. The enchilada sunrise is my favorite. Service is great and friendly. Must try.

I love this place. My regular order is their Chicken Chimichangas -wow. They serve their food on plates that are more like serving platters. Along with the regular chipds and salsa they have wonderful refried beans to dip the chips in. Then comes the platter of food that I always need a to go box at the end.

The blackberry daiquiri is out of this world. Outdoor seating is lovely during the summer months, altho they are located on US Hwy 395 so expect some noise from the street.

At the end of the meal they bring out fried tortillas, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and honey with a dollop of whipped cream. I have come to make these at home they are so darn tasty.

Once again, imo, best mexican food with HUGE portions. Enjoy!
