We love this quaint Mexican restaurant in the heart of downtown Maynard. It has the most authentic Mexican that we've found in the area at very reasonable prices. They have items you can't get at typical Mexican restaurants like Pasole and Tamales.

Good food, I generally order the cheese enchiladas or chili rellenos, many entrees come with rice & beans. Huevos rancheros are great for lunch, I wish they would do this as a dinner entree too! They also carry Jaritos Mexican soda in a variety of flavors. be aware that it gets very crowded on weekend nights, there is almost always... More

El Huipil is one of our favorite places to go when looking for great food at reasonable prices. My favorite is the Fajita, many flavors blended together in a sizzling pan. The enchiladas are suburb with quality ingredient. If you like Margaritas this is the place for you !

My husband and I enjoy going here in combination with seeing a movie at Maynard's wonderful Theatre Place -- you can park and walk to both. The food is delicious, plentiful, and not expensive -- I always have the Taco Salad. Service is cheerful. It can get crowded! We always enjoy our meal here.

El Huipil is run by a local family all of Mexican descent. They are very friendly and very involved in the community. Their food is wonderful. Service is typically very fast unless it is a very busy night. Prices are mid-range. The atmosphere is homey, bright and cheery. The place is often packed on Friday and Saturday nights. My husband...

I decided to take a chance on a burrito for lunch here and it was really quite good. I'm a sucker for the burrito's at Anna's and they're a tough act to follow but El Huipil can go toe to toe for flavor and quality no problem. I know I'll be back to get my Mex fix soon because this... More

Don't miss the guacamole, which is superb, but everything else is great too. Nothing fancy, but they do basic Mexican food very nicely

Carnitas burrito and chicken mole are my go-tos, and I like them here. I'm no Mexican food authority. I can't speak to other's perceived notions of "authenticity", but the carnitas is nuggets of crispy, slightly salty goodness. They can get pretty busy at peak hours so plan ahead. There's not much room to wait for a table.
