This place beats out all the big chain Mexican Restaurants. They have a large portions with great quality. I enjoyed their chicken burrito with guacamole loaded up.

The food fresh, the ambiance relaxing and the service was over the top! My entire family was satisfied..and that doesn't happen very often! Elysse was more than a GM - she was like a concierge at a 5 star facility. She even came out with Salsa refills..."I noticed you were runnng low.." LOVED IT!

had to grab a bit before a show at Parker Playhouse. This place is a real gem. Honest, fresh, great Mexican food, Guacamole was amazing and other foods were exceptional. However, they advertised wine, which was out and offered me a "canned Marguerita", no bueno. Had a nice cold beer. Clean and cute.

Excellent, fresh and quick! Prices are right food is delish!! Best quesadilla I have ever had and the shrimp tacos ROCK! Was with my child who was getting a little fidgety and they scrambled to get her food out extremely fast. My first time here and definitely not my last!

This place is awesome, I love the fish tacos here. Tacos are huge and they make the best mango salsa. What I love most is the service. There is a blonde lady taking orders and while being very casual she is personable, caring, and courteous.

First off, everyone knows the key ingredients to decent Mexican food. The differentiator in my opinion is the sauces. And, that's where Whole Enchilada has it dialed. From the sauces on their fish tacos (delicious, mild cilantro sauce, making you anticipate and love every bite) to the multiple choices of salsas from mild to hot and spicy. And, you serve... More

The Whole Enchilada is the freshest Mexican food around. Love the Salsa bar !! My kids love the "Bob" burrito. Try the shrimp taco, they are good. Seating outside is nice if weather permits.

Small Mexican joint on busy Federal Highway. They serve burritos, taco salads as well as other Mexican fare. Plus they have beer. Most of the seating is outdoors with limited seating inside. The traffic noise from Federal Highway can be a bit distracting if you sit outside - it sounds like you're dining on a speedway! Food is good, fresh... More
