Did not choose El Tejado as my first choice but our normal favorite is close on Sunday. I ordered the taco salad, my wife chicken enchiladas. My taco salad was excellence quality and fresh... probably the best I ever had. The enchiladas also were very good. What a pleasant surprise El Tajedo was. We will be back! Highly recommend to...

Driving home to Knoxville from Ft Lauderdale on interstate 75, we'd had 8 days of food, fun entertainment and sun. Expectations for finding a meal were low. The interstate is crowded with fast food places with big neon signs, mostly mediocre food and indifferent staff. El Tejado is that roadside dining gem. Great tasting food, I mean some of the...

I frequently travel to the area for training. I never visit the area without having a meal at El Tejado. The food is great. I have had almost everything on the menu. The drinks are always cold and the wait staff are courteous and never let your glass empty. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the area.

We burped and had acid all night so we probably ordered wrong. The two baskets of tortilla chips with hot sauce did not help. Seems like an ok place but just not for us who are used to low fat low carb diet. The place was full at 8PM and most were families. Ambiance was good

We were in the area for Thanksgiving and needed a good meal on Black Friday. We did not have to go far to find this yummy food. As you can see by my pictures, we were given lots of food. The chips were fresh and crisp. I think we had the cheese dip on everything. The grilled chicken was cooked... More

We were on a day trip for a funeral and everyone was extremely hungry. There were no big chain restaurants available in Forsyth. We tried to find food in the business area and was unsuccessful on a Saturday afternoon around 3:00 p.m. We took a chance on this restaurant and our party of five were pleased with the menu and...

We had a party of 10 so we waited a bit before being seated but not too bad. Our waiter was very good and kept the chips, salsa and drinks fresh. Very impressive since the place was full and we had so many in our group. It took a long t I me for our food but it was worth... More

The wife and I stopped at El Tejado on a whim as we were passing through Forsyth. The food was really good and the service was both prompt and attentive.

This is a family restaurant with excellent service and very good food. The price is within reason and a family could afford to eat here without breaking the bank. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good Mexican food.
