Visit El Mex for an authentic Mexican experience. From the servers who speak fluent Spanish to the perfectly selected music, you will feel like you've stepped into a vibrant cantina. Prices are very reasonable, servers are happy and smiling.

We stopped in to grab a quick bite and watch the game until halftime. What an unexpected great find! We can't say enough about the service and food. Salsa and guacamole were exceptional, a vegetarian entrée was specially made as one of my party had a few food issues, margaritas were made as ordered, we were even given a complimentary... More

We happened to be in Saratoga Springs for our son's rowing regatta. We needed lunch and just happened across this place. Amazing! Wonderful staff and delicious food. My son is Celiac and we asked for a corn tortill(a when they brought out (free) flour tortilla appetizers for us. They remembered and at the end of the meal brought delicious fried... More

This place was a real treat. Read another review about this and figured we'd give it a try and we were glad we did. From the food to the service everything was great. Tara our server was great with information and service. The food was hot and delicious and the shot of tequila at the end topped off the night.... More

We can here for a late lunch. We were a large group. The food came out quickly and the servers were very friendly and solicitous. I really enjoyed my delicious vegetarian burritos and the warm corn tortillas with delicious salsa. Others in my group felt that their food was good but weren't as happy as I was. I was also...

Who would have thought some of the best Mexican I've had would be found in Cambodia! The carnitas and the al pastor tacos were my favorites!

I came here somewhat last minute, as I was passing through and in the mood for good mexican food. This restaurant is awesome. It has pleasant ambience, and I was happily surprised by the salsa they brought me almost immediately upon sitting down. While it could have been spicier in my opinion, the freshness and flavor was superb; an excellent... More

Nice outdoor cafe and very large indoor restaurant. We sat outside and were promptly brought salsa and chips. Lunch menu has good selection. Menu states that everything prepared mild unless you specify spicy. This is a nice option for those who can't have spicy food. A dessert cinnamon apple fried thing was brought to the table gratis. Food is very... More

This eatery features the real deal Mexican food and great 'Rita's. We were a party of ten and service was excellent even though the place was packed. We enjoyed every bite from the just right salsa to the sweet ending. Well worth a visit.
