Located in a strip mall close to the Sherburne Cty Gov Ctr where I was working last week. I ordered a burrito which was good. I thought my wife would like to taste this and tomorrow is Valentine's Day. I asked for a burrito to go for a Valentine for my wife. The host was very kind and quick to... More

We really enjoy the seafood enchilada with white cheese sauce all over the top of it! They also have excellent sauce and chips that they give you to munch on right away with your drinks. My husband LOVES their margaritas!

We stopped in for Subway next door, but we saw El Amigo's and decided to try something new. We were glad we did! Good food in a nice clean and bright place. And friendly service too.

I feel ashamed it took me this long to review as we have been here a lot. I find it interesting that the bad reviews were likely someone who works for the "competitor". El Amigos has such authentic food. I have had a variety of items there. The service is fantastic and they are so welcoming and I always feel... More

Not sure why it is never very busy. I've been here many times over the years and always happy with the food and service. This last trip showcased a new menu and the portions are much larger (so are prices...), so maybe it changed hands recently??? Anyways, the 12" burritos were great and my son's carnitas chimichanga was off the... More

Good variety on the menu. I'm not very experienced with Mexican food and the server was very helpful with explaining the dishes. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was tasty and relatively fast. I'll go back again. They also have a full bar.

Excellent service, very personable and good food. We came on a Saturday night at 8:30 PM and were a little concerned there were not many people there. However, the food we ordered came very quickly and the drinks were great. We stayed after our meal and talked with the Manager, Isaias who was very friendly. We liked the atmosphere and... More

Don't know where to start. The food we ordered was horrible. The hamburger in the enchilada's was extremely over cooked, and the waitress even acknowledged it! We struggled to eat any of it. Service was subpar, however the atmosphere was actually ok. On the bright side, we did find an excellent Mexican restaurant a mile away that we go to... More

We have been here quite a few times now. The food is always fresh and tastes great. It does not taste "pre-packaged" like a lot of the other Mexican restaurants in the area. The service is great here and it's never too crowded. I don't think too many people know that this place is here. It's located in a strip... More
