If you are looking for chain restaurant Mexican food keep on looking. El Golfo provides a great range of fresh Mexican, Vegan, Vegetarian, and Latin American options. Live life on the edge and go fresh. If you hit the right night you'll get some music and/or dancing too. Trio Fajitas in the pic.

We were a party of six came to listen to the Jazz night which we enjoyed.
The food was ok. I had a salad which was very bland and not appealing. My husband had the steak which was tough. The waiter was very nice and helpful.

We wanted Mexican. So, went to Trip Advisor for our search....This place was close by so we decided to try it:( They did not have queso dip for our girls! The salsa was watery!!! The food was bland and the pinto beans had large pieces of onion in them...they were not good! 3 out of 5 of us got water! She refilled it once!?!? Would not recommend at all!!!

We did a take-out dinner from El Golfo. Although the place has been around for years, I somehow missed it. They have a large dining area with a space for a band (neither bad nor good tonight). My wife got a pork dinner; I got a ceviche. Both were better than average and yet nothing to write home about. Still....since it's very convenient to where we live, we'll probably come back fairly often.

The food was very fresh and came quickly.
There is unlimited chips and salsa, the quantity is pretty substantial so you definitely won't go home hungry. I really recommend the chicken nachos especially if you have kids with limited taste.
Overall great environment great time great food
