My wife and I could not find the place where we wanted to eat, gave up looking and stopped at the first place we found. What a surprise we found, Celia's Mexican American restaurant. Very good food, lots of it, and the Mexican food dishes...More

best tsle I've ever had- full of tender beef. And the chicken enchilada--ooh. Tons of sweet shredded chicken. I wish we had someplace even vaguely as close in Tacoma.

This is where everyone goes to get the goods. And let me tell you it is gooooooood! Special quesadilla heaven. Mouth watering salsa. Can't go wrong at Celias. Traditional Valley Mexican food. Try it. This place is a staple to El Centro-ites.

We stopped for lunch on the way back from Phoenix. Tripadvisor has it highly rated. While not fantastic, it was good. Tacos, and the quesadilla especial. Good chips and salsa. We would stop again.

Clean, nice atmosphere, good food and fast service. No specific lynch menu but you can order anything a la carte reasonably priced and not fill up on rice & beans. Freshly made chile relleno, shredded beef tacos.

This is one of the most popular Mexican restaurants in El Centro. The food is generally good more Focused towards the American customer versus the inland Mexican food. However there's some dishes that are traditionally Mexican but not as spicy.
