Love the chips and salsa/beans they provide immediately upon sitting. Their green salsa was very fresh tasting and good. The normal size burritos are huge ($4.50). There's probably a reason they serve them wrapped in aluminum foil, so you can easily take home the leftovers! Had the carne asada and it was delicious. Next time I might see if they... More

You can't miss going to El Herradero. This is a small building without lots of tables and is usually pretty full around lunch and dinner - and that is for a reason. It is great food and great price. Chips, salsa are offered for free with your meal and given before you order. Great menu and lots of options. We... More

Awesome burritos and very reasonable prices. Fully stuffed burrito with your choice of meat and a big bag of home made chip's and salsa for about 7 dollar's. Very fast service.

I love Mexican food. The outside and inside of this restaurant needs a lot of updating, but the chips/green salsa and food was delicious! I ordered ala carte - 1 cheese enchilada, beans and rice and I have never, ever had such inexpensive food. The enchilada was $2 and each side was $1, so the total for my meal was... More

El Herradero is fantastic. The food is just spicy enough and so tasty. The chips are always fresh and most of the time they have fresh tomatilla sauce that rocks. This is one of our most favorite places to eat. I wish they were open on Sunday but I respect their need for a day off. I totally recommend it... More

After our usual TripAdvisor search in a new town we settled on El Herradero. Chips came with bean and green sauces. The bean not great and the green too hot for us. We asked if they had red salsa. They said yes but it never appeared. I ordered a Chile relleno for an appetizer. The pepper and filling excellent. The... More

Fish is delicate. Over seasonings, especially with salt, serves no purpose. Likely the worst meal I hate had in quite some time.

Thank Bruce C
