Went to El Mirador on August 21, 2016.This is a great restaurant. It looks like it is run by a family and the food tastes the same, homemade. This was authentic Mexican cooking. I had a burrito and enchilada plate and my wife had chile relleno. Everything tasted wonderful and being able to add a few Mexican label beers made... More

Popular spot with locals which is always a good sign. Chicken quesadillas were tasty on the homemade tortillas. Tacos were good too. Take a jacket because it was too cold in the restaurant. Wait staff was good and welcoming.

Stopped in to eat while on a road trip and was happy I chose this place. Got the Chicken nachos and they were excellent. Staff was very friendly.

The shredded beef is unmatchable! I love shredded beef because of this place but when I order it anywhere else it is not nearly as good. I have yet to find something on the menu I don't like.

They have a huge menu! Anything you can think of having, they have, and it is all good! They come out at first with chips, salsa, and beans. I get the pollo a la crema. So good! Shredded beef in enchiladas is way good. I recommend this place! Good, authentic food and great service!

It took 20 minutes to place our order, or be acknowledged, then they didn't get the order right, so I.leave hungry!! I ordered a sneak fajita salad and char came was a gross mess, some kind of house salad with shredded Taco meat. It was disgusting, just the smell made me sick!!

We love to eat here. The food is consistently good. My husband loves their fajitas and I really love their Mocajeta. During the wintertime when I get a cold it works better than any medicine could to help clear my sinuses and make me feel better. The flan is made from scratch not a mix.
