We went around six and it was packed. It seems to be a local favorite and I can see why! The staff are wonderful and the food is great. We had a ton of food for under $20! Great tasting Mexican food.

We ate dinner at El Tejano this evening. We had to wait a bit for a table, but the owner came to assure us we would be seated soon, and we were. The wait staff was extremely attentive. The menu is extensive and the margaritas perfect. I had the stuffed poblano and it was excellent. Miss Rosie checked on all... More

We were seated as soon as we walked in and the waiter was there to help us. The food came quickly and was excellent. There was no feeling of being rushed and enjoyed the time spent there. The only negative I had was that it was a little noisy and hard to hear at times.

Love El Tejano! The family atmosphere is so laid back & welcoming from the time you walk in until you leave. The staff wait on you like your lifelong friends & your food is ready so quickly its still hot. Great place for a quick bite or a hang out with a big group.

Best service we've ever had in any kind of restaurant! It's the average Mexican menu but the food is a step above any we've been to. The chicken in my enchilada was the most tender I've ever had. However the friendliness from Rosy from the moment we walked in and the service from all those working there was above and... More

I have never had a bad meal here. The servers are always friendly, and you receive a lot of food for the money.
