I moved here a year ago and this is my favorite Mexican Restaurant in town. The food is great and the service is pretty good. They have the best frozen Margaritas. I have met the owner a few times and she is the sweetest person. If you have not tried this place check it out. Make sure you eat upstairs... More

My friend and I were very disappointed with our experience at El Mundo last Saturday. The exterior looked quaint and fitting for the Frankfort Ave restaurant scene. We walked inside to an extremely small area - seated maybe 16 people with 4 of those seats being bar stools at the front window. Here you can order food/drinks and your name... More

I visited here with a colleague during a work trip and really appreciated the vegetarian options. We ordered two dishes (Spicy Bean Tacos & veggie special of the day) and shared them between us. The portions were very generous and we enjoyed the food. The sweet potato in the special were a bit undercooked for me. Sauces were delicious and... More

Great food with a nice flare. Excellent service and very friendly. Seating is a bit crowded and can be a little noisy. Great atmosphere. Also has an outdoor seating area. Fun place to visit. We would certainly return.

The Chili Rellenos are fantastic as is the guacamole! The Top Shelf margaritas are maybe the best margaritas I have ever tasted. They go down a little too easily! Fish tacos were great. Nachos app was great, too. Actually, every dish I have tasted at El Mundo has been really, really good. The patio is lively and the staff always... More

Best Chili Rellenos EVER! The vegetarian stuffed peppers are made from scratch and are filled with yummy pumpkin and squash, which makes them sweet and spicy at the same time. Served with anything but traditional rice and beans...both are seasoned and cooked in a way that says these are not from a can. Be sure to order a margarita as... More

Took the wife and an out-of-town friend here for dinner on the weekend and it was a great experience! The best Mexican food we've had in Louisville so far, and we've been to a few places!

I have tried guacamole in several places all over the cities and countries that I have been to. By far El Mundo restaurant has a top quality fresh guacamole that makes me come back over and over again. Overall the food is crisp and delicious. They have outdoor and indoor sitting which is a plus if you don't want your... More
