“Great place, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

We've been to El Limon a few times and the food is always good. The mole sauce is my favorite. The place is small and gets crowded, which I a the only negative. Staff is always friendly and helpful. They have some delicious flavored soda (Jarritos). Prices are very affordable and food comes out quick.

“Quick and yummy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

Take out, delivery and stay in.
We chose to take out, only because we had 2 active youngsters with us.
Tangy, spicy and yummy burritos.

“Quick Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014

I stopped in on a weekday for lunch. The place was busy and I sat at the counter which was really cool because you could watch them cook. It all looked really good. I had the 3 enchiladas, they had so many choices for stuffing them, but I chose cheese. I had the tomatillo sauce and they let you substitute extra rice for beans. Nice presentation. It was all excellent from the attentive waitress to quick tasty Mexican food. $10 for my lunch platter including a soda.

“Dont Judge a Book By It's Cover!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

From the outside, El Limon didn't look like much, but it was highly recommended by my cousin, so I was optimistic. Upon entering, I noticed the sparse décor, industrial metal chairs, and dark particle board tables, and was still unsure. We were greeted with a smile and told we could step into the other section of the restaurant. Overall, it looks like they could seat maybe 25-30 people. Our table was clean, our server nice. We actually moved tables as we felt a draft from the one door, and they quickly came over to clean off the table we wanted to move to.

I ordered 2 individual tacos supreme style (steak & chicken tinga), and my cousin & I shared tortilla chips with guacamole & pico de gallo. My cousin got a chicken enchilada in mole sauce, which she said was very good. My tacos were excellent, and the pico was among the best I've had.

It was $16/each including tip, which I thought was very affordable. I did not have occasion to visit the restroom, so I cannot speak to the conditions.

I will definitely go back again!

“Amazing Mexican Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2014

You will find amazing, authentic Mexican food here. It is a bit of a hole in the wall establishment, but once I tasted the food, I could have cared less. You can get free margaritas with dinner!
