A good lunch after a day in the field. Probably the most authentic Mexican food in the area. Restaurant is nice, new, and decorated nicely.

I have eaten here several times, but have vowed never to return after my last experience. I visited the restaurant alone to celebrate my birthday. The service was slow and the server was not very attentive at all. The food was okay, but nothing to brag about. The best thing about the meal was the Margarita that I ordered Toward... More

This restaurant was only about half full when I went in for a late lunch on Saturday. I was seated right away, but I was near the open door, where a workman was using a loud drill, and cool air was blowing on me. I asked to be moved. A table was cleared, and I moved. My original waiter brought... More

Great food and great service we ordered ours to go cause it was cold outside and it had been a long day. Just wanted to eat and relax in our hotel. Only bad thing I can say is when you order food to go be sure they give you utensils other than us having to find forks it was good.

We had a very friendly server. He seemed to struggle speaking English but we got through it. Our food was very good.

This place pretty much stays busy when opened. I have eaten there a few times, but I get the same entree each time. I'm not much of a Mexican food fan. I get the steak and rice plate. This place is very eye appealing. I honestly believe that you will enjoy your experience there.

Texas is home to the best Mexican food in the country, so I am always leery of eating Mexican food in other states. The chips and hot sauce was very good. My guys all got queso fundido...It was pretty good, but not much seasoning. I got an enchilada/tamale plate. It was okay, just not what I am used to. The... More

It may just be me and my personal likes and dislikes but to me this is some rather bland food. Some of it may be my age as El Canaveral serves what is called traditional Mexican Food which to me is pretty bland no matter where it comes from. I'm of an old enough age that when I think of... More

I took my kids in for an early dinner. The food was okay and the service was too. Not good enough this time to score it any better than average.

Haven't been here on a few months, but it was really great! Fast service and everything was fresh and hot. Very nice decorations for Halloween as well!
