We went for an anniversary dinner and had our kids as well. We ordered the "parillada" which has steak chicken tripaitas rice beans and tortillas. We were the only guest and it took for ever to receive our food, when we finally got it we found a hair under the chicken. We let the waitress know and she offer to... More

El Alamo is a very also ran type of restaurant with small portions and very bland food. The day we visited the wait staff was only friendly as we left. It is in a good location, it just needs to pick it up to be successful. The little things add up like only having 1 of 3 lights in the... More

Eating for the sixth time at El Alamo, we have yet to be disappointed. The Chimi is really good, and at lunchtime just enough to satisfy, without being stuffed. We have learned to decline chips, but always ask for additional salsa. We also had flan at the restaurant and it was great. Prices are very reasonable. We will keep going... More

Great service and the food was sooooo good. Way better than typical Mexican food. The only thing I recommend is they need music. I could only hear the music from the kitchen. The... More

Food Poor, service poor. Seems if your not hispanic you get lousy service - I'm not the only one thats experienced the poor service while viewing other patrons getting constant attention. I left no gratuity and will never enter the place again. When the topic of resturaunts in Douglas comes up I make sure my El Alamo experience is shared.

If you find yourself in Douglas, AZ and have never tried a horchata, do it! We've had horchatas in several mexican restaurants and all our friends agree, this is simply the best. No complaints on the food, tasty at a decent price.
