The best TEX/MEX in the area very friendly and good service. I didn't find anything that I don't like. My wife does not care for TEX/MEX but she does like El Pobre.

Great Mexican food, consistent and very reasonable. They have an extensive senior menu which provides ample portions. Their salsa is amazing!

The food is more like something a bachelor who doesnt like to cook would make and call Mexican. When we first moved from southern California to the Carolinas 20 years ago we were surprised by what was supposed to pass for mexican dining. The only real difference between tacos, burritos, enchaladas, etc was the way they shaped the tortilla. All stuffed with plain, unseasoned blah hamburger meat. This has changed drastically as there are now many Mexican restaurants in the Carolinas that rival Cal and Texas stryles and quality. This is not one.

I have eaten at El Pobre about 20 times so you might guess that I like it. There is one on the way to Cruso on 276 and another on South Main Street in Waynesville. Both are simple and inexpensive. Service is quick and friendly. The food is very consistent, sort of Taco Bell type Mexican but done better.

El Pobre is our favorite go to restaurant when we're too tired to cook or we just don't feel like cooking. They have a great senior menu with incredibly low prices. The atmosphere isn't much but they may be looking for a new location. Best Salsa anywhere and you can buy it to take home! They have another location (the original El Pobre) out between Canton and Cruso. No alcohol. Nice family restaurant.
