My wife and I grew up on the California version of Mexican food, and for any even more authentic version you shouldn't miss this gem. As elsewhere noted, the tortilla soup is unique and really fabulous-try it with the smoky chili peppers they bring as...More

San Miguel is a great town, but if you really enjoy the intense and varied flavors of Mexico, it can be a little dull. El Correo is great for mole if that is your thing, and it sure is mine. Fresh tortillas, rice, beans, red...More

The food is delicious but after seeing extremely poor hygiene disciple, we will never return, despite the fact that this was a regular and enjoyable stop in the past.

Good service. Very reasonable prices. The best tortilla soup we have found in SMA. The hot sauces/salsas are great. No complaints.

We needed a light meal on a Monday evening before meeting folks later for drinks. El Correo was a perfect choice. The sopa Azteca with its array of condiments satisfied our hunger and allowed us to enjoy the entire evening. Our server was quick, polite,...More

Came here twice and had the chile rellenos, which were delicious! They have a good selection of mezcal that comes with a shot of homemade tomato juice.

Description
This is a restaurant which serves few gringos who seem to love places which are tailored for serving the expat population. El Correo has excellent food and wonderful service. it's a brief walk from the Jardin and when we were there we went to El Correo 3 times. Gets 4.5 stars in my book. It deserves to be reviewed on TripAdvisor.
