My colleague and I stopped in for lunch recently. The service was good, as were the tacos and the prices. The restaurant was nearly full with locals, which for me is always a good sign. We'll be back.

This Mexican American restaurant has mostly Mexican food. We asked where the American menu was, and the server replied that tacos and burritos ARE American! We enjoyed a chicken burger instead, and had a good time too.

El Faro sone of the best, if not the best, restaurants in T Or C. The food is reliably good, the service outstanding and the restaurant is clean. We always enjoy going there, it is almost like clean homecoming food - without the work.

Always good to choose the place that locals eat. We also got a small discount for staying at Riverbend, so that always helps! Food is good and spicy!

Stopped by with friends and found both the service and the presentation of food sadly lacking. The chili rellanos were like flat pancakes and overall just not appetizing to look at. Food not as tasty as we had hoped for. Would not make a return...More
