Husband and I had dinner there last night and returned today to try their enchaladas. We had the combo with various meats and sauces. I liked te steak in the suiza and ranchero sauces, which is unusual, I normally like chicken. They do steak/beef very well at this restaurant, very flavorful, unique. I will probably try the steak carnitas next.... More

Definitely one of the better Mexican restaurants in the area. Everything I've tried here has been decent or better, but I'm particularly fond of the pollo maria la diabla - nice and hot and full of flavor. The drinks are fine but nothing to write home about in my experience. The only thing stopping me from giving five stars is... More

My fellow co workers and I agreed to meet for lunch. Two of us ended up here and the place was busy so they joined us. The food was good and it wasn't busy at the time. It has a full bar but being lunch we decided to go back some night.

El Tejaban has the best carnitas I have ever had! Juicy and flavorful. My husband loves the fajitas. Great service and atmosphere.

Visited for a Friday night dinner and was happy with our experience all around. I was initially a little leery about how it would be with its location in the middle of a strip mall, but as soon as I walked inside the atmosphere was warm & inviting, and offered what I l feel to be an authentic Mexican feel....

Had dinner here on a week night. The place was not busy. The server greeted us right away and took our drink orders. We waited what seemed like an unreasonable amount of time to get our drinks. We were ready to order by the time they arrived, and had to insist the server take our meal order. We ordered the... More

If you are looking for authentic Mexican food this is the place. The food is fresh and you do get good portions. We usually get the molcajete stone and never been disappointed. The drinks are good but the Margaritas are more on the sweeter side. They do have a good variety of imported bottle beer but I do wish they... More

Authentic is the word that describes El Tejaban to a T. The food is wonderful and plentiful, the bar offers great drinks and beer. Mexican décor & music. Staff is great, the place is very clean & well kept. Price is not cheap but not expensive either... just right!!
