Food was ok but temperature could have been heated more. Staffing was excellent. El Chico was easily found in mall with an outside sign.

Live in Wichita Falls but wanted to check out the Dillard's in Lawton. El Chico is at the mall, we were hungry, so it was a convenient place to eat. Service was good and the food was okay.

Good food and great service..being from Texas..I liked everything.. If you are looking for Sangria PUNCH this is the place, if you want Sangria as a wine, they don't have it

El Chico is a favorite for me because the location is convenient to where I work. The food is consistently great and the service is also. I think the waitstaff is some of the most friendly in Lawton. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Love to go on the day we get two meals for the price of one when you buy two drinks. The manager is very nice. It is easy to get to in our mall.

I was not impressed with any of the foods. We tried it a few times but just never impressed. I would say the fajitas are your best bet... and always wash it down with a margarita!

The food is very good, the service is great, and prices are reasonable. They have coupons, like buy one, get one free enchilada dinner. The strawberry shortcake is wonderful.
